Rebel cause for KPMG

KPMG has been awarded a UN tender to audit millions of dollars pouring into the Juba in Southern Sudan, to facilitate negotiations between the Ugandan government and the rebels of the Lords Resistance Army

KPMG has been awarded a UN tender to audit millions of dollars pouring into
the Juba in Southern Sudan, to facilitate negotiations between the Ugandan
government and the rebels of the Lords Resistance Army, writes Penny Sukhraj.

The UN office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs said KPMG will
‘come on board’ to oversee the spending of the peace initiative funds, amid
allegations from the LRA that the chief mediator was mismanaging the fund.

The UN announced initiatives to release the money to broker peace talks in
the region in October last year in New York.

The UN has contributed US$4.8m (£2.4m) while the governments of southern
South Sudan, and Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s government contributed
US$1m (£506,000).

Rebels in the north of Uganda continue to perpetuate one of the world’s worst
humanitarian emergencies.
