Lt. Gen. Kiprono Tuwei work engagements will involve a close relation with the newly-appointed Special Representative of the United Nations (UN) Secretary-General and Head of the UN Regional Office for Central Africa (UNOCA), Abdoulaye Bathily, UN agencies, European Union and the United States providing funds for the implementation of the RCI-LRA.

Ambassador Francisco Madeira, the chairperson of the Commission, applauded Tuwei for his new appointment and commitment in working with AU in different positions in the past two years.

“The RCI-LRA, which was launched in March 2012 has registered tremendous milestones on LRA, including the full operationalization of all the contingents as well as Sectors of the Regional Task Force (RTF), greater coordination among the member countries of the RCI-LRA and mobilization of international support” Madera said.


These efforts have resulted in the significant degradation of the command and fighting capacity of the LRA and relative improvement in the humanitarian situation on ground.
