The mother of LRA leader, Joseph Kony, has set a two-weeks deadline for a peace agreement to be signed.

“The matter should be concluded in two weeks and people in Juba should go home,” 83-year-old Nora Anek reportedly told her son in Garamba in DR Congo.

“President Museveni and Kony should face each other directly and iron out their problems once and for all. They are both my sons.”

The faltering peace talks received a new boost last Saturday, when Kony’s mother became involved.

The old lady was taken to her son in a confidence building effort, after 17 years of separation.

Since their reunion, Anek has been urging her son to lay down his arms and make peace.

That the ICC arrest warrants keep hanging like a sword over the whole process became clear during a meeting yesterday between the LRA leadership and the visiting teams, consisting of Gulu DRC Walter Ochora, former minister of state, Owiny-Dollo, and UN representatives.

“Kony complained that the ICC had indicted them without listening to their side of the story”, Ochora told The New Vision by satellite phone.

Kony reportedly referred to the cases of Liberian president, Charles Taylor, and Congolese warlord, Thomas Lubanga, who had given themselves up in the name of peace but were later sent off to The Hague.
