In February of 2012, we were able to speak with a 19-year old former LRA abductee* who was forced to become one of Joseph Kony's 40+ wives at the age of 16. She explains how the combination of FM radio and defection leaflets gave her the courage to finally escape, more than three years after her abduction. This story highlights the importance of the Demobilization, Disarmament, and Reintegration (DDR) process and the need to expand efforts that promote peaceful surrender of LRA members.
