    Uganda Responds To Kony 2012 Video

    Uganda's government has taken to the Internet to correct a "false impression" about the country it says was created by a U.S. celebrity-backed online campaign to hunt down fugitive warlord Joseph Kony.

    Uganda, which is spearheading efforts to find the suspected war criminial whose global profile soared after a YouTube video went viral, wants to show the world Kony is not in the country and it is doing all it can to find him.

    Wanted by the International Criminal Court, Kony is accused of abducting children to use as fighters and sex slaves and is said to have a fondness for hacking off limbs.

    After founding his Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) in the 1980s, Kony terrorised large parts of Uganda but his reign of terror has subsided since 2005 and he is now believed to command only a few hundred followers, scattered in remote jungle hideouts in neighbouring countries.

    "The Kony 2012 campaign fails to make one crucial point clear. Joseph Kony is not in Uganda," Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi said in a 9-minute video posted on YouTube.

    "Uganda is not in conflict. Uganda is a modern, developing country which enjoys peace, stability and security," he said, insisting that the Kony 2012 video did not represent the current situation in the east African nation.

    The prime minister is correct that Kony 2012 misrepresented the situation on the ground. To address his specific claims:

    Joseph Kony is not in Uganda
    Correct.

    Uganda is not in conflict.
    Correct.

    Uganda is a modern, developing country
    Correct (although "modern" is somewhat subjective, Uganda is a lot better off than many parts of Africa.)

    which enjoys peace, stability and security
    This might be a bit of an exaggeration, but the situation has definitely improved since the Lord's Resistance Army was marauding throughout the country in the mid-2000s.

    In comparison to the rest of Africa, Uganda is a paradise.

    think countries like S. Africa, Kenya, Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia might disagree with that but I get your point

    From what I understand, that AIDs infection rates in Uganda are far lower than in S. Africa, Kenya.
    I should of qualified my statement, with sub Saharan Africa.

    Considering the general stability of the country, I've entertained the thought of visiting it, in the future.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this was a pretext for NATO led "freedom bombs" and nothing else.

    Uganda is just a 21st century case of noble savages and the white man's burden.
