In 1960, located in the East of the African continent Uganda gained independence from Britain. But getting rid of colonial rule did not bring peace and prosperity to the country immediately began to tear the conflicts between political and national groups. The ideology of many of these movements was a chaotic cocktail of different religions, strange political demands and frankly psychopathic ideas. One of the most ambitious and cruel of the movements was the "Lord's army" of Joseph Kony.

Joseph Kony was born in a respectable family of a Catholic priest in the small village of ODEK in 1963. Later, when Uganda was shaken by the atrocities of this man and his army of fanatics, classmates Horses recalled that at school he was quiet and friendly, loved football, was a good painter and was the best performed folk dance of his people, an Acholi — larakaraka.

When Joseph is a little older, he began to help his father during the service in the Church, and free time spent hanging out between several huts of the tribal villages. From the abundance of free time Horses, Jr., a lot of thinking, including religion. Sermons of his father firmly entrenched in his young mind, but he didn't like was the canonical interpretation of the Bible and Christian humility.

A great influence Joe had his relatives who did not always adequate actions. His older brother Okello Genoni of fanatical Christianity went to the other extreme — left home and began practicing witchcraft. Even stronger effect on the evolving mentality of young Horses distant relative of Alice AUMA, a survivor of "spiritual rebirth," which should be called a severe mental disorder.

It all began in 1986, when the usual market vendor Alice AUMA suddenly lost hearing and power of speech. 11 physicians and folk healers who were exposed to the woman relatives are not able to help her. Medicine in Uganda has never been at altitude, so how in the clinic and in the hut of the witch Alice put one diagnosis — obsession perfume.

Alice AUMA "Of Lakwena"

Soon the woman's condition deteriorated so much that she ran away from home in the local forest, Paraa and lost there. The search brought no results and Alice began to count the dead. But after 40 days obsessed cousin returned to the family, however with the gift of speech and "enlightened". Alice claimed that she was possessed by the spirit of the deceased in the woods Italian officer Lakwena.

With the Italian language, this name has nothing to do, since one of the dialects of Acholi means "messenger." However, Alice began to demand that others called her Lakwena and began to preach the idea of the liberation of his people from the oppression of power and independence.

At the time these appeals were more than relevant, as the authorities in the North of Uganda was in the hands of Yoweri Museveni — an ambitious and violent policy, a military coup. His national resistance army acted with extreme brutality, killing Acholi men, raping women and taking the ranks of the militia of children.

When Lakwena gathered the people and announced that the spirits had shown her a way of dealing with the junta, Museveni, she is willing to believe — a chance to get rid of the oppression of the people's army, even the most miserable, no one miss is not wanted. So around Lakwena began to form a group, which is itself the seer was called a Movement of the Holy spirit.

Crazy Lakwena laid in the heads of their followers extremely complex system of beliefs, in which pagan beliefs Acholi was closely intertwined with Christianity and nationalist ideology. In the army witch were forbidden to drink alcohol, smoke or have sex. In return, the leader promised his men invulnerability from bullets of the enemy, which required just before the fight to draw on the body of the cross and circle with oil.

The lack of weapons of Lakwena also decided very original way — she's convinced his soldiers that, thanks to divine intervention, the usual stones thrown at the enemy, turn into a bomb. The former vendor was removed from his followers any liability, releasing them from the worst sins associated with the implementation of its orders and instructions.

The witch was enough to tell me that the spirits had left her during the battle and it's all staged. But the authority of Alice AUMA was hopelessly undermined and battered remnants of her army dispersed to their homes. She Lakwena soon died from complications of AIDS, a cure of which are actively selling their countrymen for several years.

Despite the General disappointment in the seer and her death, some followers of Alice have not changed beliefs and to renew the struggle, they only needed a leader. It so happened that the fallen banner of Lakwena raised her cousin Joseph Kony, the son of a priest and just smart.

By the time of the death of the leader of the Movement of the Holy spirit, Joseph has long since left the service of the Church and was sitting idle. All the free time, of which he had many Horses in his thoughts, in which many places were taken biblical truths and commandments. Gradually this led to the mental disturbances which may in the family handed down. Nephew Lakwena started not behave quite adequately — it began to struggle with bouts of unexplained cruelty and religious fanaticism, which gave place to Christianity, Islam and paganism.

We can say that the goals that were set before her the Lord's resistance army Horses were good — he wanted to overthrow the brutal junta Museveni and allow the Acholi to freedom and prosperity.

So the latter-day prophet of the people of Acholi outlined its programme in the first interview to the press, which managed to get only in 2004. His flock Horses were taught that Jesus died on the cross, but simply ascended up to heaven, before giving his authority for it. While his main Advisor Joseph called the Holy Spirit, justifying all this nonsense and atrocities.

And about the atrocities in places where carrying Acholi freedom of the Lord's army of Horses, knew firsthand. Violence has become a major factor in the success of the new forces, leaving behind even fanatical faith. Very strange, but a liberator of the Acholi people of mass extermination of their fellow men, cutting out with his gang the whole village. Women were raped and men were killed or in the form of Supreme grace, maimed, cut off limbs, vikalina eyes and cutting off noses and ears.

One of the victims of the partisans of Joseph Kony

Soldiers of the army of the Lord was on the hunt for the Acholi children of 10-12 years and at first forced them to kill their parents, older siblings and even neighbors. It was a rite of passage in which children cut himself off from the world and became devoted to Horses. To describe all juvenile crime fanatics, it is impossible — before their destructive imagination pales even those of the Nazis.

Pregnant women stabbed, cut off ears, noses and genitals of victims were fed their family, mass rape of children, women and men. In order to protect survivors from unnecessary stories about crimes, they sewed their mouths or tongues cut out. Impunity and the remission of all sins, the promised leader, turned the Lord's army in the greatest on the planet group of bloodthirsty maniacs.

Reverend Joseph Kony — the best friend of children

Founded as a resistance to the atrocities of the regime Museveni, the army of Joseph Kony quickly surpassed opponents of cruelty and literally filled the Northern Uganda blood. The illness of the leader of the Lord's army progressed and in his head already originated the idea of world domination. For this purpose, the Horses broke several camps in neighboring Uganda, Sudan, where he attracted new supporters.

According to the concept of the new world, invented Horses, all governments of the planet will cease to exist, and society will return to tribal device. People no longer need sophisticated and efficient weapon, as all conflicts between the remaining people in the world will be solved through peaceful negotiations.

In parallel, the Horses inspired his men that those who will be killed just is not clean enough to live in a new, perfect world. Preaching future of prosperity and peace without violence, the leader of the Lord army did not have specific short-term goals and the actions of his minions was more like a crusade, aimed at the extermination of all who will meet on the way.

For all the "revolutionary struggle", the government of Uganda has not received a single claim or of an ultimatum and, in General, vaguely imagined that, which is seeking Kony and his associates. Despite the fact that the army Museveni at times superior in number and quality of weapons of the Lord's army, they could not succeed in this war due to the lack of support among the people, was very intimidated and did not trust anyone.

Joseph Kony and his entourage

In combat, the Horses were not only the regular army of Uganda. In this country sent a special unit of George Bush and Barack Obama, but even the best professionals of the US army was unable to capture in the forests of the country's murderous sectarian.

In 2012, the world learned about the atrocities of the Lord's army, thanks to the documentary "Kony 2012" released by human rights group of the US, Invisible children. When news of the atrocities of Joseph Kony and his supporters spread around the world, maniac, finally, frightened for his own skin and died. The leader of the rapists and murderers were not satisfied with the prospect of being on the court in the Hague and he wanted only one thing — to disappear from sight.

At the time of the Lord's army ceased to be a formidable force — he remained only a few hundred of the most fanatical supporters. Some of its fighters executed himself Horses during uncontrollable bouts of rage, died in gunfights with the regular army and U.S. special forces. There were those who are simply tired of wandering through the forests and rivers of blood.

Dominique Ongwen

In 2016 in Europe, we tried one of the main henchmen of the founder of the Lord resistance army — Dominic Ongwen. He was accused in more than 70 crimes against humanity and sentenced to life imprisonment. This was the last straw and the Horses just disappeared, dissolving in the woods-torn Uganda. He was declared harmless and the United States withdrew its military experts and the Ugandan army has turned a military operation.

But the inhabitants of Northern countries do not experience illusions, because I know that bloodthirsty beast with a group of people who have nothing to lose, just hiding. Joseph Kony, if he can't catch, can turn up at any time and a bloody harvest will begin again. He's a false prophet and a psychopath in a recent interview, he said about himself: "One day people will Wake up and realize that I have been for some time dead. I will die like Hitler". Sorry, but hope these words are not necessary, because bad people don't just die.
