Jacob Acaye, now 21 and featured in "Kony 2012", a video from the charity Invisible Children that has brought worldwide attention to atrocities committed by Kony's forces, sat in his village of Koro and told CNN that "it should get the attention of everyone in the world. It has been going on for 26 years. It shows we are failing to solve it."
The Lord's Resistance Army terrorized Uganda with murders, rapes, tortures and abductions in a brutal campaign against the government and the civilian population, until it was pushed out of the country in 2006. It is now active in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic.
The video has renewed interest in bringing Kony to justice.
Acaye and his brother were kidnapped during a raid on their village, among 40 children taken on one night of bloodshed. His brother was executed attempting to escape, but Acaye successfully fled, and his now a law student in Kampala, Uganda's capital.
