Gulu.
Former FDC party president Kizza Besigye has said the insurgency in northern Uganda took long to end because President Museveni delayed the peace process.
Dr Besigye made the remarks this week in Gulu Town where opposition leaders were campaigning for electoral reforms ahead of the 2016 general elections.
He said attempts were made to end the insurgency peacefully, but were frustrated by President Museveni and the UPDF.
“Earlier attempts to stop the war were affected by the government soldiers (UPDF) who would instead attack the rebels yet they had already assured them of speaking peace,” Dr Besigye said.
