Ugandans See Video, Ask Why Make Kony Famous?
Thousands gathered in a dusty park in Lira, Uganda, to screen the 30-minute video about the feared and hated Joseph Kony, many coming away wondering why they had to be reminded of such brutality. Some jeered as the projection neared its end and scuffles broke out as simmering frustrations boiled over. The campaign behind the online video was met with skepticism from some. "Why make Kony famous? It baffles them," said Victor Ochen, director for African Youth Initiative Network, the charity behind the showing.
