The World : Uganda's Premier Ousted

Uganda's ruling Military Council has dismissed Prime Minister Paulo Muwanga, Radio Uganda said on the eve of crucial peace talks with rebel leaders. Muwanga, vice president and defense minister under ousted President Milton Obote, was replaced by former Finance Minister Abraham Waligo. Muwanga's dismissal, ordered by Gen. Tito Okello, head of the Military Council, met one of the key conditions of the National Resistance Army before it would agree to talks. The meetings are scheduled to begin today in Nairobi, Kenya.
