Lessons from Russia and Sudan - fund militias at your own risk

Sudan military funded the Janjaweed militia to help it fight the war in Darfur. The Janjaweed transformed to the Rapid Support Forces and then turned against the army leading to the current crisis in Sudan. Same case in Russia. The Russian military supported the Wagner Militia to help fight its battles in Ukraine and we have have seen how they tried to turn against the Russian military.

Bright leaders always use those militias to attain their goals, then keep sending them to foreign countries to do their bidding. Kagame did with the many militias that helped him to power, same with Museveni. Chad used to lend Gadaffi much of their militias because Chad couldn’t afford to pay them decently to keep them less ambitious, but Gadaffi could, so Idris always sent them to Gadaffi. Same with the Touaregs in Mali… Gadaffi always paid them well so they were never stubborn around Mali and akina Niger, Algeria and Burkina Faso… Gadaffi died, so them Touafregs wanasumbua pale Mali, na hio sehem zingine.
