The nine members delegation led by the Deputy Chairman, General Alfred Ladu Gore, arrived at Entebbe Airport on Monday at 11am, morning. Unfortunately they were not received by Ugandan authorities. The officials stayed in the Airport the whole day until they decided to return to Addis Ababa in the evening.
Their mission to Kampala was in response to a request by President Yoweri Museveni who asked for a meeting with the Chairman and Commander-in-Chief of SPLM/SPLA- in Opposition, Dr. Riek Machar Teny. The delegation’s travel was arranged with the knowledge of the Ugandan Ambassador to Ethiopia.
The intentionally aborted visit was to make preparations and set an agenda for a possible meeting in Addis Ababa. In today interview with Media James Gatdet Dak,the Spokesperson of the Chairman of the Opposition stated that, Ugandan leadership has clearly indicated that President Museveni is not serious to dialogue with our leadership. May be the Ugandan leadership had a different intention. May be they didn’t like the fact that the mission to Kampala was made known to the world through media.
Kampala used to mislead the IGAD member countries that it wanted to dialogue with the leadership of the Movement, contrary to the reality which is now unveiled.” Gatdet said in an interview with Journalists today.
