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. She led an army to believe that holy oil would keep bullets from penetrating them, rocks would turn into bombs and if a soldier was killed it was considered that they were unclean. After her death, Joseph Koney, who claims to be her cousin, took over the rebel army and refined it to what is now the LRA.
