General: Kony Out of Congo

A Congolese general claimed Tuesday that warlord Joseph Kony and his army had been driven out of the Democratic Republic of Congo and into the Central African Republic. He made the comment after Uganda recently claimed that Congo has been obstructing the search for Kony, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity. But Gen. Jean Claude Kifwa says that Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) have been driven from the country and countered that Uganda may be deliberately delaying the search in Uganda. “Firstly, he’s no longer in Uganda. Also the Americans are supporting the Ugandans (against the LRA) and the Ugandans want to benefit from that support.” The hunt for Kony has received widespread attention since the Stop Kony 2012 video went viral last week.
