DP wants gov’t to withdraw UPDF soldiers from S.Sudan
The Democratic Party has called on government to withdraw UPDF soldiers from South Sudan. DP President, Nobert Mao, while addressing the press today, said Uganda’s presence in the war-torn South Sudan is like adding fuel to the fire adding that it is counterproductive and creates resentment to Ugandans.
Reports from South Sudan on Tuesday afternoon indicate that Uganda people’s defence forces have openly entered juba, the recent target of former Vice President, Riek Machar’s rebels.
A UPDF convoy with four Armoured Personnel Carriers has openly entered Juba.
It was earlier reported that UPDF was unwaveringly carting artillery into South Sudan following Riek Machar’s rebels’ threat to attack and capture the capital Juba.
Trucks carrying weapons were seen crossing Gulu in northern Uganda heading for the border Nimule.
