L.R.A. leader Joseph Kony reportedly has converted to Islam and become a Muslim many years ago.
It isn’t just me saying so either:
The Lord’s Resistance Army and the ‘forgotten war’
in Northern Uganda
An outsider might be tempted to perceive this running battle between rebels, government troops and local communities as an ethnic or regional problem. Indeed the national press, in particular the state-run New Vision, conveys the tensions between Kampala and the northern part of the country frequently in this light. Yet Kony has his headquarters in Sudan. The harboring of Kony and the supply of arms from the Sudanese government in Khartoum, purportedly as a retaliation for Uganda’s support for the Sudan People’s Liberation Army SPLA in Southern Sudan, have heightened the geo-political significance of the war. Rumors of Kony’s conversion to Islam only fuel suspicions about the machinations of Uganda’s “fundamentalist” Muslim neighbors.
