THE Bishop of Lango Diocese, John Charles Odurkami, has predicted that the 17-year-old northern Uganda rebellion would end this year.
He said there is an indication that Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army rebels, would be defeated by a combined force of UPDF, Amuka militia and prayers to God.
â€œWe have declared a spiritual war on Kony and his LRA fighters. All the churches in the country have come together to pray over these satanic forces of Joseph Kony,â€ the bishop said.
He was on Boxing Day addressing thousands of Lira Christians who had thronged Uganda Technical College play ground during the National Prayer Blanket, a prayer which was conducted throughout the country for peace in the northern Uganda.
Odurkami said by killing innocent people, Kony had no good vision for the country.
â€œKony came to commit all sorts of evils. As Christians, we must declare war on the LRA in the name of Jesus,â€ he said.
He said he expected people who are living like animals in the bush to go back home and stay a normal life this year.
