Lra rebels: they should have been disarmed, if only they anyone could find them


October 7, 2005

It would seem that the 3-400 Ugandan rebels of the LRA that were said to have been in the northeast of the Congo have disappeared. Just as the arrest warrants from the International criminal Courts were being announced, no has been able to find any trace of them in the area of Faradje. According to Radio Okapi', the military of the peacekeeping force MONUC that went on iste today have not found any rebels. The handful of rebels in question is being led, it is said, by the no. 2 man in the LRA, Vincent Otti, who has become an internationally wanted man having been included in an arrest list published by the ICC earlier today. There are rumors that the LRA rebels - whose presence in Congo has raised tensions between the former Zaire and Uganda, have already headed toward South Sudan, where they have bases and training camps. Yesterday the Monitor', a Kampala daily, said that the new Sudanese authorities have opened an inquiry to verify if the transfer of the Ugandan rebels has taken place with the help of the Sudanese government army. Events in these countries in the past few years have been intertwined. Sudan and Uganda accused each other of supporting each other's rebellions. The South Sudan issue has reached a peace accord this year with the government in Khartoum, ending a twenty year conflict, while Ugandan authorities have not been able to find an agreement., while also failing to militarily stop the LRA rebels, which have been active for the past 18 years.
