The President said for people to prosper in the Great Lakes Region, there must be peace.

He urged the U.N. to enable the Congo people exiled in Uganda to return to their country.

The President made the remarks on Thursday evening meeting the U.N Secretary General for the Great Lakes Region Ms. Mary Robinson at the sidelines of the 7th Great Lakes Extra-Ordinary Summit at Munyonyo in Kampala.

“We succeeded in Burundi because we were knowledgeable and serious,” he said, noting that since 1960 the United Nations has been in Congo and was doing nothing.

This is not the first time Museveni is expressing his disappointment with the United Nations Mission in DRC, commonly known as MONUSCO.

He recently described the UN mission as a “terrorism conservation project,” saying it continued to look on idly as militants especially the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) carry on with military drills and recruitment to open war on Uganda.

According to the Uganda Red Cross Society over 66,000 Congolese refugees have so far crossed into Uganda in a continuing influx that is stretching the capacity of humanitarian workers to help the refugees.

The refugees are entering Uganda though the frontier district of Bundibugyo, and many have found temporary shelter on the campuses of three schools there.

Ms. Robinson hailed President Museveni for spearheading the peace process in the Eastern DR Congo.

She recently proposed a set of principles for peace, which seek to guide immediate efforts to tackle the crisis in the region, while maintaining a focus on long-term solutions.

They recognize the importance of ending the suffering of the mostly women and children who have been displaced by the violence, and call for the acceleration of the voluntary return of all refugees in the region.
