pill geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 200%;”>“We gave Machar four days to respond, prostate if he doesn’t we shall have to go for him all of us. That’s what we agreed in Nairobi, rx ” Museveni told the media in Juba on Monday morning.

Museveni was referring to IGAD meeting in Nairobi last week which called for immediate cessation of hostilities and an all inclusive dialogue including reviewing the status of the detainees in recognition of their role in finding a peaceful solution to the political crisis.

IGAD made it clear that it would not allow any group to overthrow the government of President Kiir.

Museveni’s latest threats could be aimed at pressuring Machar to hold talks with Kiir.

However, the Ugandan leader has a record of waging wars, even in foreign countries.


Ugandan troops are currently pursuing LRA leader, Joseph Kony in Central African Republic and fighting Al Shabaab in Somalia.

Museveni also supported the RPF guerrilla group which would eventually seized power in Rwanda in 1994.

The UPDF also fought in DRC against then dictator Sseseko Mobutu and also participated in the SPLA secession war from Sudan.

Already, Uganda maintains a Special Forces squad in South Sudan which was deployed to oversee the evacuation of Ugandans but is said to have carried out aerial sorties against Machar’s rebels in Bor.
