Joseph Kony (born 1961) is the head of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), a guerrilla group that is
engaged in a violent campaign to establish theocratic government in Uganda, which claims to be based
on the Christian Bible and the Ten Commandments. The LRA, which earned a reputation for its actions
against the people of northern Uganda, has abducted an estimated 30,000 children and displaced 1.6
million people since its rebellion began in 1986.
