The video has garnered sharp criticism form Uganda experts and journalists while the organization behind the videos has come under financial scrutiny regarding the incomes of its board of directors. Nigerian-American author Teju Cole, on Twitter, berated Invisible Children as part of the “white savior industrial complex” while others have raised questions of the film’s factual accuracy. Controversy surrounding a speech given by Invisible Children founder Jason Russell in 2011 at evangelical Christian, Liberty University has been seen by some as an admission that the organization is cover for an evangelizing campaign in Central Africa. Ugandans too have complained that the Kony 2012 video disregards efforts made by indigenous aid groups and ignores the peace in Northern Uganda, now in its sixth year. Concerns also abound as to the consequences of US involvement in the African nation and the possibility of escalation if Joseph Kony remains at large by years end.
