Uganda: July 20, 2005


Uganda promised earlier this month to send 50 policemen to Sudan's Darfur region as part of the African Union (AU) peacekeeping effort. For nearly two decades Uganda and Sudan engaged in an on-again off-again war, as Sudan supported the LRA gangs in Uganda, and Uganda provided support for the SPLA in southern Sudan. That began to change in 2002. and 2003. The Ugandan policemen may prove to be an effective element in the AU force. Uganda has a lot of experience dealing with Sudanese-sponsored Islamist militias.
