Uganda mulls troops pull out from Somalia. Officials

Uganda’s army is carrying out a review of its deployment in peacekeeping missions in Somalia and the Central African Republic which could see its troops withdrawn.

According to army spokesman Lt Col Paddy Ankunda, a special committee has been constituted and its recommendations will be followed.

This is not the first review but it is the first time a withdrawal has been considered.

A highly placed source who requested anonymity told the BBC that President Yoweri Museveni had mentioned the possible end of both missions to foreign diplomats recently.

Uganda has played a crucial role in bringing relative stability to the Somali capital, Mogadishu, and surrounding areas. It supplies more than 6,000 soldiers to the African Union mission, making it the largest contingent.
