Uganda: Still an African Success Story?

"A deal bringing an end to the war in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) was reportedly signed at a mini-summit arranged by Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on 18 April attended by the Congo's Laurent Kabila, Chad's President Idriss Deby, along with President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda and Eritrea's President Isayas Afewerki. Further talks were scheduled for later this month in Italy. But this may prove to be yet another false start to peace in the DRC. First, doubts have been fuelled by the lack of involvement of both the Congolese rebels and their principal sponsor, Rwanda. Second, it is unclear whether Uganda is in a position to withdraw its troops from the eastern Congo."
