‘We don’t know of any Kony video’: villagers tell of reality of violent attacks: Kony 2012 sequel released | The Guardian

“I don’t want to go back home, I’m too scared,” says Brigitte Seleigi, who fled her village after it was attacked by the Lord’s Resistance Army on 10 March, one of a rising number of violent acts by the guerrilla rebel group that has led to displacement of the local population and a growing humanitarian crisis.

Seleigi is in Dungu, the largest town in this part of Province Orientale in the north of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), sitting on a sack of basic food aid provided by the World Food Programme. She is surrounded by thousands of other Congolese villagers who abandoned everything and came to Dungu, some walking more than 30 miles through the night in their desperation to escape the LRA.
