“It is part of Museveni’s broader agendas to halt Arab advances in Africa,” charged Taha.

He is on a state visit to Egypt and has already met the Premier Isam Sharaf.

The bold revelation underlines the growing animosity between Museveni and his Sudanese counterparts.

The two leaders have been at loggerheads for supporting each other’s rebels.

Museveni openly supported and called for the secession of South Sudan from Khartoum while Sudan secretly supported LRA rebels with guns, food supplies, ammunition and essential intelligence.

Taha told the gathering Museveni publicly declared his plans while speaking at a ceremony in New York last year.

The fire-spitting Sudan leader said during that function, Museveni gave details of a mushrooming movement of the marginalized regions in Sudan to change the axis of power in Khartoum on grounds of deliberate neglect and inequality in development.

Taha was perceived to be referring to a UN event held on September 27 in New York to deliberate on South Sudan’s independence referendum.

At that time, the referendum was scheduled to occur just four months later.

According to Taha, Museveni said Sudan’s political cancer was that some groups were determined to run the country as an Arab country in absolute disregard of Africans there.

Museveni clarified that Sudan was an Afro-Arab country and therefore any form of marginalisation would definitely trigger resistance.

Speaking with fury, Taha also blamed former Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi and former Yemen vice-president Ali Salim al-Beidh for contributing to the secession.

He said they all, like Museveni, supported SPLM, a guerrilla group.
