Uganda expels North Korea military experts over UN sanctions

KAMPALA— Uganda has expelled North Korean military experts and representatives of North Korean companies, including its top arms dealer, as African nations face growing pressure to comply with U.N. sanctions over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program.

Any North Koreans still in the East African nation are diplomats or private individuals, Okello Oryem, a deputy minister of foreign affairs, told The Associated Press.

“We are in full compliance,” Oryem said, adding that Uganda maintains normal diplomatic ties with North Korea.

Uganda specifically demanded the exit of individuals representing the Korea Mining Development Trading Corporation. It is North Korea’s primary arms dealer and is under U.N. and U.S. sanctions.

The expulsion marks a policy shift for Uganda’s government, which previously had warm relations with Pyongyang.

North Korea for years trained the Ugandan security forces in physical fitness, maritime warfare and weapons handling.


Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, in power since 1986, previously praised Pyongyang as an exemplar of the fight against what he described as Western imperialism. In 2014, Museveni hosted a state dinner in honor of North Korea’s ceremonial leader, Kim Yong Nam, and said the North Koreans are “friends who have helped Uganda for a long time.”

Commentary, 21 Oct 2017
So, the story of strings of the so-called FREE, LIBERATED and INDEPENDENT East African Countries becomes a glaring light of dysfunction of members of the UNDEREVELOPED World. And Africa keeps on marching along with its demeaning image around the Globe. Even the wretched white skin, down trodden beggar, has a demeaning attitude toward an African dignitary. [There is an old story (a remark) made by a white official about a black representative of a very powerful country at the united nations. But that is for another time.]

The old colonial masters are still the driving force behind the curtain, in various elasticity of forms and shapes, and in conformity with Time. This Time around, the colonial masters, shrewd and conniving as ever, see the change of Time – hence the need to cooperate with corrupted indigenous, hungry for money and power i.e. African Dictators. They are fifty-one of them (51 being magnanimous figure) out of fifty-four in the “Dark” Continent of Africa. They milk Africa out of its bones!!!

That is not the end of the African Story. It is estimated that that there are over thirty-thousand (30, 000) African Intellectuals in various fields of endeavour, specifically with Doctor of Philosophy Degrees (Ph D) from Ivy league Universities [or from sham schools, in desperation!] around the Globe. What do they do to liberate the African people? NOTHING, in practical term. On the contrary, it is not farfetched to say that they are itching to get their hands on the Money and Power of free-for-all Africa.

Now, let us go the notorious African Leaders. Africa has been under external colonial forces for seemingly time immemorial and still continues – this time, with the active participation of indigenous African Leaders who have been SALIVATING for Money and Power, while being under the boots of their old masters. They are on ‘marauding’ mode. They learned it from their masters. They are replicating it now on their mothers and fathers, on their brothers and sisters, on their entire African Race. NO trace of shame. There seems to be no end to their savagery – exactly like their colonial masters.

And so THE AFRICAN TRAGEDY goes on —and on –and on …..and the African people, from the RICHEST Continent, are the poorest creatures crawling on the surface of the earth, searching for pieces of bread to sustain them just for the day

CRY, MY BELOVED AFRICA, even if you are devoid of natural tears. THE END
