South Sudan's Riek Machar Pleads With Museveni Over House Arrest

Ugandan leader Yoweri Museveni recently appointed Betty Bigombe, the former mediator between the Uganda government and the Lord's Resistance Army, to try and reconcile warring parties in South Sudan. Rebel leader Riek Machar, who has been in South Africa since 2016, told the United Nations that the country's government has been "hospitable" but that he wishes to be released "from confinement and detention".
