Sudan says Uganda LRA leader not in Darfur


September 27, 2009 (KHARTOUM) — The Sudanese government denied claims by the Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM) that the leader of Uganda Lord Resistance Army (LRA) Joseph Kony relocated to the western region of Darfur.

This week the SPLA spokesperson Kuol Deim Kuol said that Kony sneaked into Darfur coming from the Central African Republic (CAR) after the strikes made by Ugandan helicopters to his forces.

Kuol suggested that Kony is seeking protection from the Sudanese army and may be used to fight the Darfur rebels.

Salah Gosh, the adviser to the Sudanese president and former director of the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) said that the SPLA claim is untrue.

He said that the SPLA is resorting to “fabrications” and “political maneuvers” to “distort the image of the Sudanese army”.

“The SPLA knows very well where Kony is,” Gosh said.

Since the 90’s Khartoum reportedly armed, trained and gave military intelligence to the LRA to help it take on the Ugandan government and fight a proxy war against the SPLA.

Kony, in a video-taped meeting in 2005, described it as a mutually beneficial arrangement where “we helped the Arabs to fight their war in the south while they helped us to fight [Ugandan president] Musievini’s government”.

The LRA leader is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) and a number of his commanders for crimes allegedly committed against civilians in North Uganda.

From September to March this year, the Ugandan and Congolese armies, with support from southern Sudan, carried out a massive offensive that failed to either capture Kony or neutralize his group.

Since then, peace talks have ground to a halt and LRA fighters have stepped up their attacks on civilians, in particular in eastern Central African Republic.

    Dumbass SPLM don’t know anything about intelligence. If they did Salva Kiir wouldn’t be wearing that silly cowboy hat.

      This notorious war criminal(Kony) must be hiding in Northern Sudan and protected by the other notorious criminal regime in Khartoum.
      These two criminals(Beshir and Kony) must face justice by all means. It is unfortunate that KONY who attacked and maimed innocent civilians is given a safe haven by the criminal party NCP. Beshir and Kony can run and defy the ICC but JUSTICE will prevail and these two war criminals will be caught just like Radovan Karadzic who has been hiding for more then 10 years. With his facial make up Radovan Karadzic was still caught and brought to justice. so Beshir can under go facial transplant and make himself look like the mystery prophet Mohamed but i guarantee that he will be caught and and ultimately hanged like his close friend Sadaam Hussein. SPLM OYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

      I personally think the aligation is true this is not the firsy time for Kony to be in Sudan and supported by the government of National Unity the aligation is very true.

    Kony and Bashir will try running away from justice, but that will not help. In the end they willl share the same cell.

      I agreed with Oshay. SPLA know nothing as far as security is concern they are so backward indeed.

      Kiir will remain putting on cowboy hat but will never be the President of South Sudan.

      To hell with Dinkas Government!!!!!!!!!

      Brother in Christ,

    Kony is a helper of Bashier’s war against Southerners, could be 100% true that Kony is hiding in Darfur for the safety of his life.
    In 1998 i show Joseph Kony in Juba Military Training Compound and also in Juba Military Hospital visiting his wounded Soldiers along with his Son Saddam Joseph kony, guarded by Military Police. That was been the last Time for me to see Joseph Kony in Juba. This after good Samaritan sent me Home to continue study. My Father chosen me to fight for Sudan Liberation but some one come to my help said, you are small boy, go for study!

    • 28 September 2009 12:54, by youngdinka

        Gosh is lying, however, he was not expecting that SPLM/A to know all of their secret agreements and plans,between them and LRA MAGGOT Kony.SPLM is correct because Kony arrived up to El- Geneina in West Darfur.Today news for money and tomorrow free. let us wait.

    we had this LRA savges here in khartoum we use them to kill the slave by the slaves on eachother, you black are not fit to be together with us Arabs. now we want kony to teach this Darfur rebels who bow to the jews a lessons like they teach the ugandans of museveni and the southerns savages of salfa.

    • 28 September 2009 19:22, by DASODIKO

      Are you a women or handicapped? why not do it yourself you cowards, who always fight with their mouths. The time for Darfur people to fight you has not yet come. ALL this were our girls who were giving a hard time to you. What so call Mohamed What? when we arrive I am sure you and your like will not go out of their ditches even to look for a food. The Jews are found by GOD on earth to give hard times to you up to the end of this world, you know what I mean. Also they are grandsons of our brother Moses who talk to GOD DIRECTLY.

    Kony is the criminal, and if sudan government be defensive against kony, both of them may meet in Acampo’s eye in Hague. Omer and Kony are terrorists of Sudan and uganda, Both of them should joint Alquaeda in Afghanstan.
