Museveni’s “Congo ADF scheme” suffers a setback
MUSEVENI’S “CONGO ADF SCHEME” SUFFERS A SETBACK
On 7th December 2017, alleged Ugandan rebels, ADF attacked the UN Peacekeeping Force in the eastern Congo close to the Ugandan border killing 15 and injuring over 40 soldiers from Tanzania. The attack shocked the world as every right-thinking person would question not only the motive of the alleged militants but their capacity to launch such a daring and devastating attack. Tanzania called upon the UN to investigate the attack.
Museveni on his part concluded that it was the work of the ADF whom he alleged were preparing to invade Uganda. He went ahead to launch heavy artillery and aerial bombardment inside Congo that he later claimed destroyed nine ADF camps before killing 100 militants. The UN and Congo forced him to halt the bombardment that had already generated his much cherished “foreign aid” in the form of thousands of refugees into Uganda. He has gone ahead to mobilize regional security forces against the ADF which he is now branding as an “Islamic Militant group allied to Al-Shabaab and ISIS”.
Museveni recently convened a meeting of regional Army chiefs “to review the security situation in the region”. His army Spokesman issued a statement thus; “…. the meeting agreed that the ADF is now a threat to the region and therefore requires a coordinated regional approach to tackle it. It is now reported to be in alliance with elements of Al-Shabaab as well as ISIS.”
The UN Secretary General went ahead to appoint a special probe team into the attack headed by Demitry Titov. While meeting Museveni in Kampala early this week, Museveni accused the UN of “conserving terrorism in the region”. Opposing the deployment of UN Peace Keepers, he argued that “….. It must be the people of the respective country to fight and defeat terrorism within their territory”.
Museveni went ahead to express his desire to deploy his army into the Congo if he can be given clearance by the host. This argument is premised on his trademark rhetoric of “African Solutions to African Problems”. What is hypocritical is the fact that when his troops are involved in peacekeeping, like is the case in Somalia where he has spent 11 years without any tangible results, the UN is not “conserving terrorism”.
In March 2016 the US Permanent Representative to the UN told the UN Security Council that “Museveni is a threat to Uganda’s future and stability”. By implication, Museveni is a threat to regional peace and stability.
It is a fact that Museveni is itching to re-enter Congo for obvious reasons as we (http://changeofguards.blogspot.ca) earlier outlined in these two pieces:
1. WHO KILLED 15 TANZANIAN PEACE KEEPERS IN CONGO? – 14/12/2017
2. MUSEVENI’S ATTACK ON DRC TO GENERATE ” FOREX” – 29/12/2017
Therefore, Museveni’s outburst before the UN Special Investigations team is out of anger, frustration and disappointment. As usual, with time he will manage to dupe Congo and the UN and re-enter Congo but at least for now his perversion has been tamed. Hopefully the probe team will dig out the truth and expose the devil. We can only hope. Electric vehicles are coming up and DRC is the biggest producer of Cobalt which is mandatory for electric vehicles.
INFORMATION IS POWER AND DEFIANTLY “HITTING ON THE HEAD” IS THE WAY TO GO.
