Kampala (SD) – In an exclusive interview with Frace24, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni spoke for the first time about the situation in Somalia, in particular the renewed crisis in Villa Somalia.
Museveni has threatened to withdraw his troops from the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) due to differences between the president and the prime minister, which he described as “political AIDS”.
“We will withdraw our forces from Mogadishu unless the conflict is stopped.” Museveni told France24.
He also said in the interview that he was tired of the endless political disputes in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia.
Uganda joined the AU force in Somalia in 2007 and has just over 6,000 troops in the 22,000-strong force.
President Museveni made a similar threat in 2011 to push Somali leaders to resolve their differences.
