LRA DELEGATES TO MEET MUSEVENILRA delegates to meet Museveni
THE peace negotiators of the rebel Lord’s Resistance Army are scheduled to hold consultations in Kampala, the first of the kind in 20 years with President Yoweri Museveni.

The LRA peace delegation Chairman, Martin Ojul told journalists in Nairobi, Kenya yesterday, that Mr Museveni has accepted to meet his team at State House, Nakasero.

Last October, Mr Museveni held an unprecedented face-to-face meeting with the LRA in the South Sudan capital Juba, aimed largely at reviving the then stalled peace process.
At the meeting, some LRA delegates were hostile. LRA deputy head of delegation, Josephine Apire and Ayoo, refused to shake hands with Museveni.

“Our delegation led by Martin Ojul will arrive in Kampala on Thursday and will meet the President of Uganda,” LRA peace delegation spokesman, Godfrey Ayoo quoted Ojul as saying. There was no official confirmation from the government about the meeting.
