The head of the Lord’s Resistance Army, Joseph Kony, has jumped into the spotlight thanks to a 30 minute video by the American advocacy group Invisible Children. The video’s gone viral, with more than 30 million views in the last two days, and has sparked a debate about the West’s role in Africa. Worldview discusses the video's implications with Ugandan journalist Kisuule Magala and takes calls from listeners. To join the conversation, call 312-923-9239.
