Dan Kidega, a member of the Uganda parliament, whom speaks on behalf of the children in northern Uganda, further explains the origins of this conflict. Dan traces the conflict back to a woman named Alice Lakwena. He explains that during 1980’s, Alice Lakwena believed that through the power of the Holy Spirit she could overthrow the government.
