Kony in 2006


The KONY viral video on Kony2012 is fascinating from a stand-point of a social media publicity campaign. 65 million views on YouTube and counting. I am sure that both politicians and broadcasters are taking note, especially as the documentary material is not new. Only the context has changed. But what's the full story? And why now? And is there a connection to the recent finds of large deposits of gas and oil in Uganda? May be Dutch freelance documentary maker Ruud Elmendorp can shed light on the situation. He was one of the last journalists to cover the peace talks in 2006
