An Ordinary Ugandan Doing Extraordinary Work

GUEST: Bukenya Muusa, founder and program director of Volunteer Action Network in Northern Uganda.

Uganda is a relatively small landlocked country in East Africa bordering Kenya, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. For decades the country has been ruled formally by President Yoweri Museveni, and informally by the terror of the Lords Resistance Army (LRA).

Some years ago, a US-government backed campaign to capture Joseph Kony, the leader of the LRA captivated Americans. Now that the focus on Kony has waned, little about Uganda makes the news. Although the war formally ended in 2006, the LRA persists. But ordinary people in Northern Uganda, from where the LRA emerged, are taking matters into their own hands.
