Rebels return to Uganda to beg forgiveness

Uganda’s anti-government rebel group, the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), became notorious for kidnapping children and forcing them to take up their cause. Now, years later, some of those former rebels have gone home to their villages in Uganda, searching for redemption.

Worldfocus shares a report from partner A24, a news organization based in Nairobi, Kenya.

For more on the LRA’s use of child soldiers and Uganda’s efforts at couseling and rehabilitation, watch PBS Wide Angle’s Lord’s Children.The documentary explores how child soldiers attempt to reclaim their lives in Uganda.
