Uganda: What is wrong with Juba peace talks?

John Akec writes in-depth analysis of Juba peace talks between the government of Uganda and the Lord's Resistance Army:
The question is: why Naivasha peace talks between Sudanese protagonists succeeded, whereas Juba peace talks between the LRA and government of Uganda have so far failed to make any headway? The short answer is that some of the vital ingredients that helped Kenyans broker peace between Sudanese adversaries are amiss in the recent effort to mediate peace between the Ugandans in Juba.
