LRA – Lord’s Resistance Army

Captured by Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in 2003

Stephen Raphael Kilama
was captured by Kony's Lord's Resistance Army in 2003 as they raided a Catholic high school seminary in Gulu, Uganda. Stephen shares his, at times, graphic experiences of:
• His capture by the LRA;
• The LRA’s attempts to indoctrinate him and others by forcing them to participate in violence to the point of murder as they are told kill or be killed;
• Being caught in a battle between the LRA and Uganda forces;
• His escape left him wounded and starving and his long and uncertain journey home to attempt to resume his life.
