|JOSEPH KONY: Leader of the L.R.A in Uganda|
First and foremost lets begin with a quick definition of who this guy is:
Joseph Kony is a Ugandan guerrilla group leader, head of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). While initially enjoying strong public support, the LRA turned brutally on its own supporters, supposedly to "purify" the Acholi people and turn Uganda into a theocracy ruled by Kony's self-styled version of the Ten Commandments.
The LRA is a militant group with a syncretic pseudo-Christian extreme religious ideology, known for the atrocities they commit against civilians, including murder, mutilations, rape, and in some accounts even cannibalism.
