Kony’s family expresses gratitude to President Museveni for welcoming them back home.


Ali Kony who came along with his mother, children, and his father’s uncle Kony Otim Thomas expressed gratitude to President Museveni for welcoming them back home to reunite with their community.

Those who said are ready to become productive citizens, met President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni at State House Entebbe on Friday who also promised to support this family.

The Chief of Pageya Chiefdom, Rwot Yusuf Okwonga Adek III who escorted the family thanked President Museveni for the current peace prevailing in Northern Uganda that has enabled their people to return back home. Rwot informed H.E Museveni that Joseph Kony who is now about 62 years old is weak and unable to fight back, adding that the focus should now be rehabilitating and supporting his family to engage in productive activities like farming.

“Your Excellency, Kony’s children are now your children. The family needs help from you as their father,” Rwot Yusuf Okwonga Adek said.

In his remarks, President Museveni promised to help them get land that they could utilize to do agriculture collectively as a family and join the money economy. He however asked them to understand the concept of a family company which he said is easier to operate than dividing everything amongst themselves.

“We can help them set up a farm there so that they work together as a company and then share what comes out. All the children and the wives should be shareholders. What I’m telling you is what I have been telling other Ugandans. So, I can use you as an example and become a model for other people to see,” H.E Museveni said.

The President further promised to continue supporting Kony war victims across the country.

The meeting was also attended by the Presidential Coordinator for Northern Uganda, Mr. Odoch Bosco Olak, among others.
