President Yoweri Museveni has urged African leaders to re- illuminate the causes of conflicts in Africa.
The President made the remarks on  Wednesday  at  the  Commemoration  of  the  tenth  anniversary  of  the  Peace  and Security  Council  at  Equatorial  Guinea.
 
Museveni who  is  also  Chairperson of the Peace and Security Council (PSC) of the African Union ,  said  majority  of  the conflicts, are based on  pseudo- ideology of sectarianism  and ethnicity.
 
The President noted that these conflicts are conducted by ideologically deficient groups that are very indiscipline and commit war –crimes by killing noncombatants.
 
“The starting point in defeating insecurity in Africa, in my opinion, therefore, should start with banishing the ideology of sectarianism and gender ─ chauvinism,” Museveni.
