The USA renews the LRA excuse in East and Central Africa
An AP newswire posted to outlets all over the world last week said that the Democratic Republic of the Congo has sent 500 troops to join a Uganda-led military effort to hunt down Joseph Kony, the fugitive head of the Lord's Resistance Army, or LRA, bringing the number of African soldiers deployed against the LRA up to 3,350, assisted by U.S. Special Forces. KPFA spoke to Milton Allimadi, one of the many Africa activists and scholars who have, for years, debunked the LRA excuse for introducing troops into East and Central Africa.
