Breaking: Museveni Issues “Irreversible” Order To Pull UPDF Out Of Somalia

President Yoweri Museveni and his army generals have resolved that Uganda must pull out of Somalia, the Security Minister has revealed.Hon. Wilson Muruli Mukasa told press on Friday at the Uganda Media Centre that Uganda is withdrawing its forces from all foreign countries with the view to consolidate internal security.“We have proposed to the United Nations that we want to withdraw our forces from Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Somali in order to concentrate on our own security,” said Muruli.


This follows a recent report leaked by the United Nations (UN) showing that Uganda was supporting M23 rebels in the Eastern region of DRC.Muruli said they had sent a representative in the United States to present their proposal to the UN.“As we talk, Ruhakana Rugunda is in the US to deliver our message to the Secretary Council and Secretary General of the UN,” he said.

Muruli said government’s decision to pull out troops from regional countries is “irreversible” because “that’s what we have decided.” He again clarified that Uganda has never given “any single form of assistance or military training” to the M23 who mutinied in April, accusing Kinshasha of reneging on its commitments in the 2009 peace agreement that incorporated them (initially called CNDP) in the Congo army (FARDC).



“Why do people want to tarnish our name? After all the sacrifices we have made to help our neighbors and ensure there is stability in the region. Therefore let us watch our country and make sure there is enough security,” said Muruli.“Whoever wants to cause us trouble, will have to find us in our country,” he added.The Ugandan troops are in Somalia on a UN and African Union mandate.Uganda was enraged when UN “experts” said the Kampala government was sending military equipment and recruits to support M23.

The leaked report came at a time when Museveni had convinced M23 rebels on the request of regional leaders to give truce a chance so as to create an atmosphere for peace talks with Kinshasha. Ugandan leaders described the report as a “clear case of backstabbing.” Matters were worsened when DRC President Joseph Kabila held a press conference, saying Uganda must be “forthcoming” with information regarding the UN report. Chimpreports security correspondents say Uganda’s decision will surely tilt regional security balance in and also give room for the spread of Islamic extremism and violence. UPDF-led AMISOM saw the fall of Mogadishu and subsequent pacification of Somalia after failed efforts by the Ethiopian army and US forces.

Uganda’s forces also helped South Sudan achieve independence from the Khartoum dictatorship through support to SPLA and also Rwanda Patriotic Front to defeat the genocidal regime in Rwanda.Muruli also denied media reports that Internal Security Organization was clashing with Police. “I don’t know any clash with police because we both have clear mandates in the constitution,” he said.“We also have a Joint Intelligence Committee with technical security experts. However, intelligence is gathered on any matters from open sources and they seat everyday so if there was any problem with police, I would know that.”

The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
