The signalers and UPDF commanders president Museveni deployed in South Sudan to save the sharky government of Salva Kiir have called upon president Museveni to order for their withdraw from the battle field because they are being killed in a foreign land in big numbers.
The Dr. Riek Machar’s fighters have reportedly killed over 600 UPDF soldiers in South Sudan and thousands of SPLA Dinka fighters of President Salva Kiir. Out of over 600 UPDF soldiers the South Sudan rebels have killed, Uganda confirms only nine.
The rebels have also put a condition that there will be no ceasefire if president Museveni doesn’t withdraw his soldiers from South Sudan.
But no statement has been made by Uganda as to when President Museveni would withdraw his soldiers from South Sudan.
Army spokesman LtCol paddy says UPDF has no intent of over staying in South Sudan. The Khartoum government has also raised concerns over Uganda’s military involvement in South Sudan, saying it would complicate the crisis the way it has done in Democratic Republic of Congo and in Central African Republic.
