Oscar-winning actress and Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations, Angelina Jolie, has of late been very vocal in her support against Ugandan warlord, Joseph Kony, describing him as a ‘vile’ person.
The 36-year-old actress said she felt inspired by so many young people who were rising up to demand his capture.
‘I don’t know anyone who doesn’t hate Kony‘, Jolie told U.K.’s The Telegraph recently at an event to mark International Women’s Day, in New York City.
‘He’s an extraordinarily horrible human being who, you know…his time has come‘, she added.
Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army, has lately been at the receiving end of a media campaign demanding his capture over terrorist activities in northern Uganda including the torture, killings, rape and kidnappings of Ugandans, mostly civilians.
He is also alleged to have forced thousands of children to fight in his militia army.
This isn’t the first time Jolie has been outspokenly critical against Kony.
Jolie in a 2010 interview with American TV programme, Nightline to promote her film, ‘Salt‘, stated that there were a ‘few bad people’, in real life and Joseph Kony was one of them.
‘Joseph Kony‘, she said. ‘I hate him‘.
She stated her resolve to see to the end of the matter, with a personal illustration of her determination when she believes fervently in a cause.
‘When I have to protect something in my life or when I’ve decided there’s something I have to accomplish, I do, I do kind of push to the end and I don’t take ‘no’ very well‘, Jolie said.
‘If it came down to something I had to do, I would believe in what I’m fighting for and I’m not afraid‘.

IK Ogbonna has addressed the viral video of him saying casual sex shouldn’t be considered as cheating.
According to him, what he said was taken out of context and he only meant there are other things worse than cheating on one’s partner which is breaking a vow.
So normally I’ld see a post of myself and let it slide , but in this case I’ld address it coz it was represented in a way and manner that speaks contrary to everything I represent .
From my little understanding cheating (in general) is when someone acts dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage, especially in a game or examination or even a real life situation.
IF YOU GOT TO HEAR THE FULL INTERVIEW (not only 20 sec of it) you would understand that I am NOT in support of men or women having SEX with other people aside the one the call their own .
Firstly,sex with anyone that’s not ur wife or husband a sin against God . However,I was trying to say that Breaking a vow is worse than an act we would refer to as cheating(just casual sex), and when I say VOW I refer to a spiritual&emotional nut between two people.
The truth is, Sex in our age and time has been reduced to a recreational activity,and so sorry to say, has made it loose its value in so many ways because it’s easy to find and to get.
As much as possible I preach that we should build self control and focus on one person but when we look at things from the rear view of reality having sex without being emotionally attached to the person can slide as a casual event (still 100% wrong) and still means you disrespected your partner (in)directly,you hurt his/hers feelings and worst of all: break the trust that y’all were building for so long. But in this case I was referring to people that invest emotions and feeling in some other person whilst their spouse falls into the disadvantage (wether you are having sex or not).
In this case the other person (your partner) suffers coz now you have to share your time , finance, and emotions that should be the sole rights of that one person you choose to build your life with. Bottom line,loyalty is a beautiful thing.
