    Somali Islamists warn Ugandans over Museveni

    – Sat May 14, 11:45 am ET

    MOGADISHU (AFP) – Somalia's Shebab Islamists on Saturday threatened to punish Ugandans for re-electing President Yoweri Museveni, a key supporter of an African Union peacekeeping mission in Mogadishu.

    Ugandan troops form the backbone of the AU's deployment in Somalia, which supports the weak Mogadishu government against the constant threat of takeover by the Shebab, who control most of the country.

    "It is you, the people of Uganda, who will pay the heftiest price for your army's invasion of our country," a Shebab statement said.

    "And now that you have made your choice very clear by re-electing Museveni, it is time for you to bear the burden of your choices."

    Uganda provides more than half of the 9,000 AU troops in Mogadishu.

    Museveni, sworn in to a fourth term this week, has been in power since 1986. He easily secured re-election in February, but the process was criticised by several international and domestic observer groups.

    The Shebab claimed credit for the July 2010 twin suicide bombings in the Ugandan capital that killed at least 76 people.

    In the weeks following the attack, Museveni said he was ready to send up to 20,000 troops to Somalia to permanently eliminate the Islamist group, but has so far failed to get international backing for the expanded deployment.

    Museveni had repeatedly asked for a more robust mandate in Mogadishu that would allow his forces to launch offensives against the Shebab, even when they are not provoked.

    The UN Security Council has consistently resisted the requests

    That's because Museveni's demands is not in there interest...The UN security although known to have five big nations as members personally my perspective is that it is just a font for the decisions of the US and its benefit - members wengine ki aina ni wafuata upepo ...(we have seen its operations in Libya)... We have seen how the Alshababa are causing problems and slowly taking control and yet the UN has the audacity to refuse AU intervention...
