Museveni of Uganda, whose mercenaries are fighting alongside Dictator Mayardit’s ‘Gulweng,’ had for many years used the banned cluster bombs in his war against the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) who fought in northern Uganda. If the LRA were evil, unfortunately M7s cluster bombs did not differentiate between who is a LRA combatant and who is an Acholi farmer.
The turn has now come to South Sudan, and again since UPDF mercenaries joined in the senseless war in south Sudan, there has been much skepticism on what would happen next.
Now there are mounting evidences of usage of cluster bombs found by the UNIMISS, especially so around the embattled town of Bor, capital of the war ravaged Jonglei state.
The investigation into this act of war crime ordered lately by UN Security Council is a step in the right direction.
Museveni must understand that when he chose to push his UPDF mercenaries into south Sudan, it was the oil dollars that he was after.
But wars even have rules. Enough what he did in Gulu (northern Uganda) and Goma (Eastern Congo) and managed to walk away with mass murder!
For good reasons every finger remains pointed at the direction of the Ugandan dictator and warmonger, “Abu Tagia” or “ Abu Sala” – Museveni, when it comes to these cluster bombs.
His long track records of using banned weapons to fight his wars first in northern Uganda, then his other mercenary wars in D R Congo, and CAR says it all.
Funny though, Museveni is trying very hard to push the blame on Salva Kiir who probably authorized it if not approved the use of such weapons against his own citizens.
Any way, common sense says it is either Museveni or Museveni and Mayardit.
Meanwhile the world community should understand that it is an established fact that crimes against humanity are ever since on the increase following President Kiir Mayardit’s ethnic cleansing of the Nuer tribesmen in Juba.
When a head of a state sets the pace of human lynching, you can imagine the rest.
Surprisingly many members of the UNSC continue to show lukewarm positions on the crisis in South Sudan.
But let’s hope that the latest discovery of cluster bombs usage by the UPDF mercenaries will end this lethargy by the international community to begin a new page of punishing criminals and perpetrators of human rights abuses.
No doubt the investigations which Col Paddy Ankunda is trying to pull away from will hopefully bring compelling evidences to the international community, how Uganda succumbed to blood money and chose to do an unprofessional job.
Of course one must ask, “Who is Museveni’s enemy in his war in South Sudan”? The answer is simple. It is the people of south Sudan whom Museveni has come to kill.
This probably justified to him his use of cluster bombs, for as long as his enemies can be any south Sudanese.
A thorough investigation into the cluster bombs issue is bound to expose the political marriage between Salva Kiir & his partner in crimes Yoweri Museveni, as a relationship aimed at committing war crimes and crimes against humanity that undoubtedly characterizes the ongoing south Sudan’s post-independence civil war.
Across the Atlantic, the Obama administration should move swift to close the noose on this duo who claims the honour of being the liberators of their people while the fact on ground shows that they have undone every bit of it by now playing the roles of lethal oppressors and fascists.
Museveni has tract records of war crimes and he must be ordered out of South Sudan or even forced to do so before he thinks of using other more lethal weapons of mass destruction like the mustard gas etc. The guy is dangerous indeed.
At this juncture who is that person who cannot see that now with Gadhafi and Saddam Hussein all gone to their final resting places; it is obvious that this Banyamulenge disaster, Museveni, doesn’t mind replacing them.
The world must be on the watch, for indeed a monster has risen in the Great Lakes region. This man called Yoweri Kaguta Museveni needs to be attended to.
