Govt re­con­sid­ers pull-out from So­mali mis­sion

Daily Trust - - AROUND THE WORLD -

Ugan­dan Pres­i­dent Yow­eri Mu­sev­eni says his coun­try will re­con­sider plans to pull its troops from So­ma­lia if the AU sta­bi­liza­tion mis­sion there moves in the right di­rec­tion.

Speak­ing to re­porters at the end of a re­gional se­cu­rity sum­mit in Kam­pala Mon­day, Mu­sev­eni said the mil­i­tary mis­sion in So­ma­lia has not been work­ing suc­cess­fully.

“Our main rea­son for go­ing to So­ma­lia was to help the So­mali peo­ple to cre­ate their own army, but af­ter 9 years we have not cre­ated the army,” he said.

He added “We can­not sup­port that type of thing, the type of poor plan­ning is some­thing that we don’t sup­port.”
