AFP ran a detailed report that pointed to links between Angola's UNITA rebels and the Ugandan military. Uganda backs the Congolese Liberation Movement (MLC), which is a major opponent of the DRC's Kabila regime. The report had a real jaw dropper - the MLC, which needs additional troops, may be seeking troops from UNITA. What would be the payoff to UNITA? If the Kabila regime is toppled in the Congo, and a government favorably influenced by Uganda takes power in Kinshasha, the DRC would provide UNITA with new bases for prosecuting its war in Angola.
