The militia forces comprise of former Amuka, Arrow Boys, the Acholi Boys and some local defence unit personnel. They were recruited into the auxiliary force to guard Internally Displaced People's camps and roads from possible attacks by Lord's Resistance Army rebels. President Museveni hailed the militias for supporting the Uganda People's Defence Forces-the UPDF- in the fight against the LRA rebels. He said that Kony and his LRA rebels are almost defeated and the insurgency in the north would be completely finished very soon. In his end of year/new year message to the nation, President Museveni said Kony had been defeated and the insurgency would be completely finished by March this year.
