David Nyekorach-Matsanga has quit his role as chief negotiator for Uganda's rebel leader Joseph Kony, saying, "I said earlier that if Kony does not appear to sign this peace agreement, I will not associate myself with him anymore."

RI-KWANGBA, Sudan, April 10 (Reuters) –- The chief negotiator for Uganda's fugitive rebel leader Joseph Kony said he had quit on Thursday after a delay signing a final peace deal, but sources involved in the talks said he had been fired.
 

"I said earlier that if Kony does not appear to sign this peace agreement, I will not associate myself with him anymore," David Nyekorach-Matsanga told Reuters on the remote Sudan-Congo border. "Today, I did not see Kony and he did not appear to sign the peace agreement."
