Uganda news update – Kitgum gets war museum


The terrorist conduce of the ‘Lord’s Resistance Army’, aka LRA of one Joseph Kony, wanted by the International Criminal Court in The Hague for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity, is now well documented since a dedicated museum has been opened earlier in the week in Kitgum, Northern Uganda.

The new USAID supported facility will serve as both a reminder of the brutality inflicted by Kony’s henchmen and goons on the local population as well as a peace centre, honouring the dead and showing the current and future generations the impact of conflict and how to resolve disputes without the use of force.

Artifacts, pictures and film documentaries are on display at the new museum, which hopefully will bring more visitors into the Northern region of Uganda, where peace has taken a firm hold now and economic activity has widely resumed, infrastructural projects are being carried out and in particular road construction has made access much easier.

Staff at the museum also appealed to the population to avail them more material to be used for display as the second phase of the project’s construction is going underway.
