Joseph Kony was born in 1961 in Gula, northern Uganda, to a family of farmers. He is a member of the Acholi people. His father was a lay catechist of the catholic church and his mother was an Anglican. Joseph Kony was a altar boy for several years but stopped at the age of 15 and also dropped out of school.
For 26 years Kony has been kidnapping children into his rebel group the L.R.A. They have abducted more than 30,000 children. He makes girls sex slaves, boys are forced to be soldiers and mutilate peoples faces and kill their own familys. People cant sleep in their own homes as they are terrified that the rebels will arrest and kill them.
