According to a South African news site, a UN official has confirmed that the $7.7 million budget for the stalled peace talks between the LRA and the government of Uganda has been raised by international donors. This is a major step towards moving the peace talks forward.
However there remain major impediments to the talks recommencing. The LRA has made its continued involvement contingent on $800,000 to fund public consultations, only $600,000 of which has been raised. Moreover, with the recent news of infighting at the LRA base in DR Congo it is not known if or when the LRA will be prepared to continue the talks.
