KENYA AND UGANDA (AND ETHIOPIA AND SUDAN) FAIL TO ENFORCE SOUTH SUDAN SANCTIONS, SAYS UN

Yahoo News reported on 26th November that a UN report has said that Kenya and Uganda have failed to enforce sanctions on South Sudan, including an arms embargo and travel bans.  Infringements are said to include bank accounts in Kenya linked to rebel leaders and evidence of Ugandan military forces inside South Sudan.  Ethiopia and Sudan are also identified as having “not demonstrated full and consistent engagement in the peace process” and breaching terms of UN sanctions designed to prevent further conflict.
