LRA rebels ready to surrender

26 September 2013, 17:46 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - As Uganda Peoples Defence Force troops wait for AU's approval to continue tracking the LRA rebels in Central African Republic, a good number of top LRA commanders are asking the AU to foster the process for them to acquire amnesty.

Uganda's Chief of Defence Forces, General Katumba Wamala, said that although he is not sure of the number of those asking for amnesty, a good number of the fighters said they want to return home.

"A good number of them are tired of fighting and want to come back to Uganda. I am not sure of the number that want to surrender but they are many. For us in the army, we are ready to welcome them back," said General Katumba.

He also noted that Ugandan forces in Central African Republic are waiting for a green light from the AU on whether to continue hunting LRA rebels or end their presence in that country.

Ugandan troops, with help of some USA specialists, were tracking down LRA rebels and their leader, Joseph Kony, in Central African Republic when the government there was overthrown.

With the change of government in CAR, the hunt for Kony had to stop pending negotiations between the new government and AU for permission to continue with the mission.
