Latest update : 2008-04-10

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."
 

Sources involved in the talks said Kony had apparently refused to meet the negotiator then fired him after asking mediators to clarify parts of the document Matsanga negotiated on his behalf.
