Civil War in Uganda


Where are we

Where are we?


History

History

  • Northern Uganda has experienced civil unrest since the 1980s

  • People rebelled against the Ugandan gov’t. Many killed or displaced

  • The president of Uganda used his military against two main terrorist groups.

    • LRA- Lord’s Resistance Army

    • ADF- Allied Democratic Forces

  • Children fell victim to both rebel groups, sometimes abducted


History1

History

  • The main victims of the LRA were the Acholi people in Northern Uganda.

  • They experienced brutal attacks and kidnappings

  • More than one million moved to protected camps

  • IRONICALLY, the LRA claimed to be fighting the GOU (gov’t of Uganda) forces because of their prejudice policies against the Acholi people.


History2

History

  • The GOU (Gov’t of Uganda) had been fighting the LRA for many years, and the president of Uganda was ready to broker peace.

  • The problem was the leader of the LRA JOSEPH KONY had no real agenda

  • Initially, he wanted Uganda to become a theocracy based on the 10 Commandments

  • Theocracy- a form of government in which God or a deity is recognized as the supreme civil ruler


Civil war in uganda

  • November 2003, UN Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs and Humanitarian Relief Coordinator stated he considered the humanitarian crisis in northern Uganda to be among the worst on the planet.

  • In October 2005, the International Criminal Court (ICC), announced arrest warrants for Joseph Kony and 4 of his top LRA deputies. The charges ranged from the mutilation of civilians to the forced abduction of and sexual abuse of children.

history

  • Peace talks with the LRA throughout 2006 and 2007 had failed due to the refusal of Kony to appear to sign the agreements.

  • Konyhad argued that until all ICC charges were dropped, there would be no peace agreement.

  • The LRA then continued to increase attacks in 2008 mainly in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Ugandan forces and the DRC forces attacked and destroyed Kony’s main base in DRC and pushed them to the Central African Republic (CAR) .

  • With the movement of the LRA into CAR, the Uganda Civil War had effectively escalated into a regional conflict that involved 4 countries: the DRC, the CAR, Sudan, and Uganda.


Today

Today

  • The LRA, the last remaining anti-government organization from the Uganda Civil War, continued to remain a threat to the region in 2010 by attacking remote locations and they continued to evade capture of the Ugandan military.

  • Goals of LRA had become unclear. They preferred to prey on civilians, killing, raping, and mutilating the people of central Africa; stealing and brutalizing their children; and displacing hundreds of thousands of people in the process.

  • The United States government stated in 2010, that the Lord's Resistance Army had no agenda and no purpose other than its own survival.
