Net closing in on Joseph Kony

The government of the Central African Republic (CAR) is believed to be negotiating the surrender of Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, who forcibly recruited children to serve as soldiers in his notorious ‘Lord’s Resistance Army’ (LRA).

Under Kony’s leadership, the LRA has been terrorising Uganda, South Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo for decades, committing all manner of crimes in pursuit of its mission to establish a theocratic government in Uganda based on the Biblical Ten Commandments.

A CAR government spokesman has confirmed that Kony’s whereabouts are now known. He is believed to be suffering from a “serious, uncharacterised illness” and is insisting his security is guaranteed before he gives himself up.

A self-styled mystic and religious prophet, Kony is wanted by the International Criminal Court. Back in 2005, ICC Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo released details of Kony’s indictment. There were twelve counts of crimes against humanity, including murder, enslavement, sexual enslavement and rape.

Joseph Kony is still at large but the net finally appears to be closing.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
