Uganda not supporting Sudan rebels

2012-05-09 18:17

Kampala - Uganda says fresh allegations by Sudan that Uganda supports anti-Sudan rebels is a tactic to divert attention from Uganda's claim that Sudan is sheltering warlord Joseph Kony.

James Mugume, permanent secretary at Uganda's Foreign Affairs Ministry, said on Wednesday a formal complaint was made this week by the Sudanese embassy in Uganda.

Mugume said he asked Sudanese diplomats to bring proof and to form a joint committee with Uganda to investigate the allegation.

Ugandan army spokesperson Colonel Felix Kulayigye said Khartoum's counter-claim is intended to diminish the seriousness of the claim that Sudan is sheltering Kony.

Uganda and Sudan have long had a difficult relationship stemming from Kampala's open support for the rebel movement that supported independence for South Sudan.
