Uganda is found in East Africa. It has experienced several civil conflicts that are a symptom of some classical cases of political and colonial distortions, as well as mismanagement of the economy respectively. For instance, the country has witnessed three major civil wars ranging from the anti-Idi Amin dictatorship of 1972-1979, the National Resistance Army (NRA) insurgency of early 1980s to the ongoing Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) conflict in the north of the country. Indeed since 1986, northern Uganda has been experiencing a long-running armed conflict between the Lord’s Resistance Movement (LRM) rebels and the National Resistance Movement (NRM) government. The conflict pre-dates the colonial era which introduced the north-south divide and rule policy. This was manifested in form of social and economic inequality. Prominent in this conflict is the issue of marginalisation and ethnic differences being promoted by the political elites and some elements of the military. The successor post-colonial governments did little to correct the regional imbalances and instead promoted ethnic composition in the army.
