Uganda, which has announced it will not contribute to either the IGAD unit or the UN Brigade, has a total of  581 soldiers, of which 534 are actual troops..

Some of the local units with large contingents  (troops & police) include  Burkina Faso (2600+),  Chad (1486),  Egypt (3069),  Ethiopia (8333),  Ghana (2973),  Niger (2042), Nigeria (2156),  Rwanda (6163),  Tanzania (2324),  and Zambia (969).

Egypt, in the vote yesterday at the Security Council, abstained with a scathing critique of the resolution. The delegate called the arms embargo option "extortion" and refuted the council's proposal for not including the SS government in the dialogue. It must be assumed that Egypt will not send troops.

NOTE: There was a delegate from Juba in the chamber, but was only allowed to lodge a protest following the vote.

The Ugandan People’s Defense Forces (UPDF) and the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) will not be part of the regional protection force to be deployed in South Sudan, a senior Ugandan official said.
Gen. Katumba Wamala, Uganda’s Chief of Defense Forces told the Parliamentary Committee on Defense and Internal Affairs on Thursday that Uganda and Sudan will not contribute any troops to South Sudan.
Katumba pointed out that the two countries have decided to decline from the deployment of the regional forces that was approved by the IGAD summit in Addis Ababa last week.
However, Katumba added that both Uganda and Sudan are ready to be available in case called upon and the regional force is free to use facilities like airports in the two countries.

A key ally of South Sudanese President Salva Kiir, Uganda's government said it did not want to be seen as interfering in another nation's affairs by joining the UN protection force due to be deployed in the capital, Juba.
"We choose for Uganda not to be part of the deployment so that (those) who accuse the UPDF (Ugandan army) of meddling in the internal affairs of South Sudan have no opportunity to accuse us," he added.

The meeting was chaired by H.E. Hailemariam Desalegn, Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia and current Chairperson of the IGAD Assembly of Heads of State and Government, and was attended by H.E. Ismaïl Omar Guelleh, President of the Republic of Djibouti; H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta, President of the Republic of Kenya; H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, President of the Federal Republic of Somalia; H.E. Omar Hassan al-Bashir, President of the Republic of Sudan; H.E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, President of the Republic of Uganda; and H.E. General Taban Deng Gai, representing the President of the Republic of South Sudan.


--------------------------------------------------------
Even as the accusations fly that no representative of SS had a vote in UNSC 2304, it also appears that no UN rep was at the IGAD meeting.

It is also apparent that Uganda did in fact endorse the IGAD protection force proposal but now has decided to not commit militarily to it, other than "communications and logistics".

Of note is #5.)   Reiterates that the international community, particularly the UN Security Council, has the duty and moral responsibility to act decisively and swiftly in support of the IGAD and AU efforts with a view to bringing to an end the suffering inflicted upon the people of South Sudan and facilitating the early and sustainable solution to the conflict;

So when it does, it receives condemnation for its alleged unilateral activity, and now with local military commands backing out of the agreements.
