Uganda to announce start of troop withdrawal from South Sudan

12 October 2015, 14:35

Kampala - Uganda will announce plans to start withdrawing its troops from South Sudan on Monday, the government spokesman said, a move that will be welcomed by Western and other states who have long voiced concern about the presence of Ugandan forces.

"Uganda (government) shortly to announce UPDF leaves (South Sudan) starting today," Opondo said on Twitter, after Uganda sent an undisclosed number of soldiers in December 2013 after conflict erupted. Most were posted to the area around South Sudan's capital Juba.
