If you wanted to find out a little bit more about northern Uganda and the infamous Joseph Kony, then The Wizard of the Nile is quite a worthy read. Matthew Green isn’t a literary genius, however he is a journalist for Reuters who is on a mission to interview Kony and writes quite well about his journey. Throughout
his quest it is interesting to learn more about the deeper issues between African governments, rebel groups and international intervention. Were internally displaced people (IDP) camps are good idea? Or was it a way the government could control the people of the north? Lots of deep issues here that you don’t really read about on a Facebook stream or a quick youtube video of child soldiers. A worthy read if you want to find out more about the more complex issues in our backyard in Gulu.
