#Uganda's President Yoweri #Museveni has defended his role in #SouthSudan's conflict. He denied that South Sudan's government was paying Uganda for the military assistance.

In an interview with BBC #FocusonAfrica radio, Museveni said he responded to a call by a beleaguered government to support it from unconstitutional change.

He told Focus on Africa's Bola Mosuro, that he would welcome sanctions against leaders blocking the peace process, if the sanctions were backed by regional bodies such as IGAD.
