MULTIPARTY firebrands Dr. Okullo Epak and Ken Lukyamuzi on Friday disagreed on the use of sanctions to force President Yoweri Museveni to talk peace with the Lord’s Resistance Army.
Epak (Oyam South) said Museveni should be supported in finding a solution to the 16-year-long insurgency.
“I would like to disagree with my colleague Lukyamuzi (Rubaga South). Instead of donors putting conditions for the peace talks, they should help Museveni with mediation,” Epak said.
This was during a workshop in Kampala organised by the Parliamentary Advocacy Forum and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation on finding solutions to the conflict in northern Uganda.
Epak supported State ministers Muruli Mukasa for security and Ruth Nankabirwa for defence, in saying Museveni had shown willingness in talking peace.
“Museveni has even named the negotiating team. Let us now wait for Kony,” Epak said. Ends
