Uganda Peace Talks
TAO welcomes the anticipated end to hostilities in Uganda. The conflict has been largely responsible for the significantly poorer living conditions, incomes, and health and nutrition standards in northern Uganda compared with other parts of the country. Once it is safe to move into northern Uganda, TAO will extend its relief projects to assist those who have been displaced and affected badly during the two decades of conflict.
The BBC reported on 1st November 2007 a visit by the chief negotiator of the Ugandan rebel group, the Lord’s Resistance Army, to the capital, Kampala, to meet with President Yoweri Museveni as a symbol of the group’s commitment to a peace process. It is hoped this first official visit to the city will lead to the end of two decades of rebellion in the north of Uganda in which hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians have been badly affected.
