Washington,DC: 02 May 2005 - Uganda's president says "meddling" by Western aid donors has helped prolong the nation's civil war. President Yoweri Museveni says donor pressure to cut military spending has made it harder for the government to defeat the rebel Lord's Resistance Army. During his speech today, Mr. Museveni pledged to make the nation financially independent of international aid, which makes up about half of Uganda's annual budget.
