Town in Congo takes its security into its own hands…

This is how you do it folks…

Instead, Obo’s surviving villagers raised their own volunteer scout force (depicted above), armed it with homemade shotguns, and began disseminating intelligence on the LRA’s movements using the village’s sole, short-range FM radio transmitter.

The results of this do-it-yourself approach were encouraging. Since the attack three years ago, Obo has not suffered another major LRA invasion. Noting Obo’s successful strategy, Invisible Children, a California-based aid group, in March traveled into Central African Republic to help another American group, Interactive Radio for Justice, upgrade the town’s radio to a much longer-range model, further boosting the community’s self-defense capability.

    So many places like this. Yet so few stand up on their hind feet, so many feel so helpless…

    Awesome! Locals doing what is neccessary instead of waiting for someone else to help is the way how Africa will develop. I´d be in for a Moisin as well ….
