Hey Kesaasi! What about the LRA in the north...might be not...too far...a little too early although there are aspects of it that are pretty do-able and theoretical...like the beleagured peace deal that Kony's yet to accept...the strict stance taken by the international community vis-a-vis the willingness of Government of Uganda not to charge him with crimes against humanity...Your work with government could be a great source of in4...far fetched....? Thanks for accepting my request. My very best-Cheers!
