Captured deep in the remote Central African jungle, Ceasar Acellam is the highest-ranking Lord’s Resistance Army commander to be caught alive. Is the net closing on Joseph Kony?
What happens when the Kony 2012 campaign goes viral on Facebook and Twitter? People start looking for more information about the leader of the Lord’s Revolution Army. And a story that went largely un-noticed last October on Kony shoots to the most-read list on CSMonitor.com.
Ben Arnoldy put together a perspective piece on Kony to help people better understand the campaign against him.
Set on an acre or so of land in Johannesburg’s leafy northern suburbs, his international high school – the African Leadership Academy – aims to cultivate a kind of African maverick, a problem solver who can embrace a new leadership attitude. Mr. Swaniker has identified four main attributes that leaders – at the grass-roots level all the way up to heads of state – should display: “Courage to change things, perseverance in the face of obstacles, passion, and the right values.” He’s conveying this ethic to 200 carefully chosen students – from 33 African nations – at the ALA.
