CAR Crisis: Mao Fetches Kony Abductees

approved geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 200%;”>“Together with a commit of several personalities from Gulu, prescription our party president has headed for a mission that is aimed at bringing back home the little ones who were formally abducted by Kony, stuff ” the DP legal advisor Fred Mukasa Mbidde revealed while addressing a weekly press briefing at the party headquarters in Kampala.

It should be remembered that Mao is one of the initiators of talks between the Lord’s Resistance Army leader (LRA), Joseph Kony, and the government of Uganda in the recent years.

In 2006 and 2007, Mao made several trips to South Sudan and the LRA base in Congo campaigning for peace.

This comes at a time when the warlord, Joseph Kony, is continuing to lose his grip on the Central African Republic after nearly 20 soldiers in the region defected from the brutal guerilla leader’s army.

The defection is the single largest since 2008, when the Lord’s Resistance Army first moved into the region, and is considered a massive victory in efforts to counter the militia group and a blow to its command structure.


Among the 19 defectors included male soldiers as well as adult females and six children.

The LRA leader is said to be holding talks with the government of Central African Republic with the aim of surrendering demanding that his security should be first guaranteed before he gives himself up.

The LRA was forced out of Uganda in 2005 and since then has wreaked havoc in CAR, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Kony was on the verge of signing a peace deal in 2008 but insisted that the ICC first drop its arrest warrant, which it refused to do.
