THE Sudan government has invited Movement vice-chairman Alhajji Moses Kigongo and Ugandan youths to Khartoum as part of the efforts to bring the two countries together.
The invitations were delivered by Sudanese deputy ambassador and minister plenipotentiary, Mohammed Eisa Ismail Dahab, to Kigongo at his office in Kampala yesterday. The meetings begin next week.
Present was the special assistant to President Yoweri Museveni, Maj. Jackob Asiimwe, the deputy director for information at the Movement Secretariat, Alice Muwanguzi and former Central Youth MP and political assistant to Kigongo, Faisal Ssali Kikulukunyu.
â€œWe are expecting a delegation from Sudan to Uganda to brief President Museveni about the outcome of the talks in Kenya between the Sudanese Peopleâ€™s Liberation Army (SPLA) and the government in the next two to four days,â€ Dahab said without disclosing the officials coming.
â€œOur President (Gen. El Bashir) highly appreciate the role of the President (Museveni) in the Sudan peace talks,â€ he added.
Kigongo said he would consult on the invitations but said such interactions help to normalise relations. He said the relations between the two countries were normalising but urged Sudan to implement what has been agreed upon either with the SPLA or Uganda.
â€œMeetings are healthy but our emphasis is to implement what has been agreed upon. If what was agreed upon is not implemented the meetings become useless,â€ he said.
