(PRI) – When he was 11, a group of rebel soldiers came into Kenneth Banya’s village. They told Kenneth that they were lost, and they asked if he could show them the way out of town. Kenneth’s father said no, he can’t give you directions. Kenneth’s father knew exactly how that would end. For more than 20 years, a Christian militia that’s known as the Lord’s Resistance Army, or LRA, terrorized northern Uganda. They were led by Joseph Kony. He depended mostly on child soldiers. An estimated 30,000 children were taken from their homes, forced to live in the wilderness and fight. The army also abducted thousands of young girls, who were trafficked and forced into sexual slavery.
