There is progress in the efforts against the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) which continues to terrorize civilians in Central Africa.

That’s what Ambassador Abou Moussa, the head of the UN Office in Central Africa (UNOCA) told the Security Council during a briefing on Wednesday.

The LRA, which operated in Uganda and South Sudan in the 1990’s, has extended its deadly activities to the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

UN Radio’s Derrick Mbatha caught up with Ambassador Moussa before his briefing to the Security Council to discuss the threat that the LRA and its leader Joseph Kony pose to Central Africa.
