Uganda ends hunt for Joseph Kony

FLED: Joseph Kony

UGANDAN TROOPS have decided to end their hunt for rebel leader Joseph Kony in the Central African Republic (CAR), the army has said.

According to the BBC Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) group had become “weak”, and no longer threatened Uganda.

The LRA was notorious for chopping off people’s limbs and abducting children to use as soldiers and sex slaves.

Mr Kony, wanted on war crimes charges, first emerged in Uganda but fled more than a decade ago.

Kony2012, a video made by US-based activists calling for the world to capture Kony, went viral across social media in 2012.

The International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for him in 2005, accusing him of war crimes but he has yet to be captured.
