confirmation

from the sudan radio service

” 20 April 2006 – (Juba) – The President of the Government of Southern Sudan, Lieutenant General Salva Kiir Mayardit, revealed on Tuesday that the Lord’s Resistance Army has accepted his government’s initiative to mediate between their force and the Government of Uganda to end the 19-year conflict in Uganda.

He made the remark in a news conference after arriving in Juba from Yei where he spent his Easter holiday.

President Kiir said that the Government of Southern Sudan’s mediation team is already formed and is now prepared to start negotiations between Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and LRA leader Joseph Kony early next month. He dismissed allegations that five LRA soldiers were arrested by the SPLA in Yei recently as “false and unfounded” rumours.”

can’t find much else about it at the moment.

this is completely off the subject of LRA, but still concerns Sudan. This is an article about a guy naimed Turabi. I may be mistaken but i think this is the guy that gave Bin Laden shelter in sudan a and I once read somewhere that he has been extremely instrumental in the development of “radical islam” as it is known today. Apparantly he is changing the way he thinks and is becoming less conservative than he was before. maybe.. This is the wikipedia entry on turabi.
