Former Aide Said Joseph Kony Narrowly escaped Arrest by UPDF.

A former aide to Joseph Kony , leader of the Lord`s Resistance Army-LRA Joseph Kony has told the International Criminal Court-ICC that about eight years ago the Ugandan army ambushed a unit Kony led in North Eastern Congo but Kony evaded capture.
Kenneth Oyet told court that the ambush happened sometimes in 2010 when the unit Kony led was in a place called Doruma, which is close to the border with Sudan`s then autonomous region of South Sudan.
The witness said he left the LRA after the ambush in which he was injured during the shootout. His testimony of last week was the first of its kind in which Kony is said to have escaped arrest.
There is an outstanding ICC arrest warrant for Kony issued in July 2005, the same time arrest warrant for Dominic Ongwen was issued.
Dominic Ongwen the alleged commander of the LRA Sinia Brigade surrendered in January 2015 and is now facing 70 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Northern Uganda between July 2002 and December 2005. He denied all the charges.
Oyet further testified that Kony was a mile away from them during the attack and that was how he managed to escape.
