In the 1980’s Alice Lakwena was convinced that the Holy Spirit had spoken to her and ordered her to conquer the government. Lakwena claims the government was being prejudice against the Acholi. The Holy Spirit Movement, lead by Lakwena, gained momentum as bitterness increased toward the government. Lakwena was later exiled, which left her movement with no leader. Joseph Kony declared that he was Lakwena’s cousin and so took over the movement.
Uganda became a country only 25 years before this, after its liberation from the British colonial system, which had long since left its mark on the country’s social structure. While Poffenberger and Bicombe agree that ethnic hatred perpetuated by the British colonial system and a divisive political climate contributed to the rebellion in Uganda in 1987, Poffenberger’s pro-LRA theory is vague and not as substantially grounded as Bicombe’s anti-government theory which provides detailed evidence and a well constructed argument. The roots of Uganda’s armed rebellion lies in the two separate yet intertwined conflicts of the fighting of the LRA against the government and the tension between northern Ugandans and the existing government, according to Poffenberger. Ugandan, since its liberation from Britain, was subject to the
The Rastafarian Movement has its origins during the eighteenth century; British landowners needed a large workforce and imported several African slaves to Jamaica to work on sugar plantations. These slaves fought to keep their African traditions.

In 1927 Garvey once said to his followers that their king shall be crowned in Africa. In 1930 a man named Ras Tafari Makonnen became emperor of Ethiopia; at his coronation he took the name Haile Selassi, “Might of the Trinity”.

How are governments created? What constitutes the process as being successful and under what conditions? How are the limits, guidelines, and responsibilities of a triumphant and legitimate government and what and what are the consequences if the goals aren’t met fairly or correctly? The only way to answer these questions is to look at the reality concealed beneath the power of civilizations and government. Good and evil are hidden deep within the pages of history, and are the results of the behavior and leadership of single or multiple actors.
The British and the Batswana made a Protectorate on March 31, 1885 and named the land Bechuanaland. The southern part of Bechuanaland was supposed to be incorporated into the Union of South Africa in a plan to bring together the main British colonies, but the beneficiary of this incorporation, Cecil John Rhodes, ended up attacking the settlers of that area so the British decided to continue the Protectorate for the next 70 years.
