Uganda’s three-decade president Yoweri Museveni has vowed never to invite UN peace keepers in Uganda because the east African country is secure.

On Thursday, Museveni launched  an Global Peace Leadership Conference (GPLC) app at State House Entebbe.

Former Zanzibar leader Abeid Karume attended the launch.

The event happened ahead of a Kampala Global Peace Leadership conference in August in which the DR Conflict and the refugee situation will top the agenda.

Museveni said wars in Africa sprung from tribalism and religious sectarianism.

“Those conflicts [such as the ones in DR Congo] are centred on a number of problems,” noted Museveni.

“One of the problems is conflicts of identity, tribalism and religious sectarianism-like the conflict between Lendu and the Hema.”

Over the years, analysts have complained of tribalism under Museveni’s government.

Last week, Richard Todwong, the deputy secretary general of Museveni’s ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) said tribalism and corruption would sink Museven’s government.

Museveni argued that inviting peace keepers would be an admission that Uganda is a failed state.

“You have a country, which does not have an Army, which depends on UN,” started Museveni.

“For me to invite the UN into Uganda would be a vote of no-confidence in ourselves. Why can we not guarantee our own stability?”

The president emphasized; “We would never invite the UN to come and fight our wars. If there is no fighting to be done, we fight ourselves because we are here.”
