Regional African governments traded barbs this week over their failures in pursuing the LRA. Uganda accused the Democratic Republic of Congo of obstructing its efforts by refusing to allow Ugandan troops free movement in Congolese territory to track the LRA. Congolese General Jean Claude Kifwa, who heads the effort against the LRA in the Congo, responded by saying the LRA is no longer active in his country and accused Uganda of deliberately extending the search for Kony to take advantage of U.S. military assistance. Kifwa said his forces chased the LRA out of Congo into the Central African Republic. He also claims that many of the destabilizing activities in the region which authorities blame on the LRA are actually the work of local bandits.
