Trade: Sudan People's Liberation Army and Ugandan traders in violent dispute

The Sudan Tribune reports on a dispute between Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) commanders and Ugandan traders invited to do business in Sudan.

It appears the commanders have been beating up the Ugandan businessmen and confiscating their timber. Not surprisingly, the traders fled leaving machinery behind.

The traders under Erimu Company, have now lodged an assault and theft case at Oraba Police station in Koboko and at the CID headquarters in Kampala.
