LRA Insurgency in Uganda 1995-Present

[ 1995 - 2014 ]

In 1995... a new Sudan-based guerrilla group, called the Lord's Resistance Army, began raiding villages in the Acholi district (north). Uganda's relations grew more strained with neighboring Sudan; both countries had aided various rebels' attacks on each other's government in the past. In 1997, Museveni received US arms and military training for his actions with Sudan and the Congo (Zaire). Bold raids by the Lord's Resistance Army prompted the government to confine all the Acholi people in protected villages in 1998.
