Peace In Great Lakes Region Tops Obama Agenda

Uganda is at the top of US presidential candidate Barack Obama’s African agenda, a top aide has said.

Ambassador Howard Wolpe said Obama is concerned about the suffering of children caught in the conflict in northern Uganda.

His revelation comes less than 10 days when America elects its 46th president.

Wolpe, a former top envoy in the Clinton administration, said one of Obama’s top priorities, if he won the election, would focus on peace in the Great Lakes region.

The Democratic nominee, Wolpe added, was likely to maintain the current US foreign policy of engaging “very actively in a diplomatic way.”

Wolpe was Clinton’s special envoy to the Great Lakes region that included Burundi, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, the DR Congo and Zimbabwe between 1996 and 2001.

In an interview with The New Vision in Washington, the ambassador added that Obama was concerned about the LRA war and the insecurity in northern Uganda.
