Joseph Kony is a Ugandan guerrilla leader and the founder of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). Born into a peasant family, Kony was once a Catholic altar boy. However, he was later drawn toward the Holy Spirit Movement of Alice Auma. Following the ouster of Acholi president Tito Okello and the rebellion of Yoweri Museveni, Kony formed the LRA to establish theocracy in Uganda. He moved out of Uganda in 2006, after the Juba peace talks. Nevertheless, the LRA terrorized the DRC, South Sudan, and CAR, by recruiting child soldiers, raping women, and torturing common people. The LRA was declared a terrorist group in the U.S. Many countries joined hands to hound out Kony, but they later declared he was not a threat anymore, thus ending the search.
