Uganda: army rejects LRA's talk offer

According to this, LRA leader Joseph Kony had ordered his spokesman, Sam Kolo, to seek talks with the government ... an offer that has been rejected by the army (could be a typo in the article).
"We are rejecting his offer," the army spokesman, Maj Shaban Bantariza, told IRIN by telephone on Tuesday. "These are insincere efforts whose aim is to deceive those who are weak-minded - to deceive those who do not know Kony's history."

"He has come under intense pressure from our forces in Sudan", he added, "and he wants to tell lies that he wants peace talks in order to get a breathing space."
