Who: Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), a guerrilla group that formerly operated in Uganda.
What he wants: To establish a theocratic state based on the Ten Commandments and local Alcholi tradition.
What he does: Kony has been accused by government entities of ordering the abduction of children to become child soldiers and sex slaves. 66,000 children became soldiers. 2 million people were displaced internally from 1986 to 2009. Kony was indicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, in 2005 but has evaded capture.
How he can be stopped: The US have pushed back the LRA and many of Kony’s forces have abandoned him. Kony is said to be in ill-health, and continuing the pressure to eradicate the LRA and negotiating his surrender will lead to his capture.
