President Yoweri Museveni has blamed the conflicts in the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan on selfish and opportunistic politicians, who take advantage of weak state structures.

He also blamed the problem on meddling by foreigners.

Museveni was opening the 4th meeting of the 2nd session of the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) in Kampala on Tuesday.
