    Mkurugenzi wa filamu, Jason Russell, ambaye filamu yake inayomshambulia kiongozi wa wapiganaji wa Uganda, Joseph Kony, ilizagaa kwenye mtandao wa internet, inaelekea amepata ugonjwa wa akili.

    Shirika la "Invisible Children", lilisema zogo lilozuka baada ya filamu hiyo, limesumbua roho za wanachama wote; na hasa Bwana Russell.Shirika lilofanya filamu hiyo, liitwalo "Invisible Children", limesema kuwa Bwana Russell amelazwa hospitali kutokana na machofu, kiwiliwili kuwa kikavu, na njaa.

    Ripoti zinasema kuwa Jason Russell amekutwa hajajistri sawasawa, akipiga kelele mabara-barani,huku akijichua hadharani.. mjini San Diego, California
    Filamu hiyo ya nusu saa, iliyotoa wito kuwa Joseph Kony akamatwe, ilizagaa kwenye mitandao, na kuwasikitisha wengi, lakini baadhi ya watu wanaona filamu haikueleza vita vya Uganda vilivyo.

    Hata kama amepigwa vodoo unafikiri wazungu wata-admit?

    Advocacy group Invisible Children's co-founder will be in hospital for weeks after he was found semi-naked and screaming at traffic, his wife says. Jason Russell, 33, has been diagnosed with a mental condition brought on by stress or trauma. Last week, police found Mr Russell screaming and running through the streets of San Diego, California.

    He narrated the Kony 2012 video about child soldiers in Uganda that recently went viral on the internet. Witnesses reported a man behaving bizarrely in the street, pounding his fists on the pavement and shouting incoherently. Some people who called the police said the man was naked, although he was semi-clad when police arrived.

    'Sudden transition'

    The incident came after Invisible Children's 30-minute campaign video on the use of child soldiers by Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda suddenly took off on the internet. It has been viewed more than 84 million times on YouTube in recent weeks.

    Mr Russell's family has emphasised that his outburst was not brought on by drugs or alcohol. Early diagnosis suggests he is suffering from "reactive psychosis", in which the patient shows psychotic behaviour without warning.

    "Doctors say this is a common experience given the great mental, emotional and physical shock his body has gone through in these last two weeks.

    "Even for us, it's hard to understand the sudden transition from relative anonymity to worldwide attention - both raves and ridicules - in a matter of days," said Mr Russell's wife Danica.

    "He has a long way to go, but we are confident that he will make a full recovery," she added.

    Invisible Children has the backing of countless celebrities and the International Criminal Court's chief prosecutor, but both the group and the video have also come under heavy criticism. Activists say the campaign simplifies a complex issue, and questions have been raised about Invisible Children's financing.

    Anti-Kony campaign in turmoil
    March 26 2012 at 10:17am. By Mary Slosson

    REUTERS.Jason Russell, co-founder of non-profit Invisible Children and director of "Kony2012" viral video campaign, poses in New York.

    Los Angeles - The public meltdown of the man behind the viral “Kony 2012” video has thrown his campaign into turmoil even as the film succeeded in turning the world's attention to capturing an elusive and brutal Ugandan warlord. Jason Russell, whose 30-minute video sensation shone a spotlight on Joseph Kony's use of child soldiers in Uganda, was taken by police to a hospital in California last week after suffering what doctors described as a brief psychotic breakdown.

    Videos posted online showed him pacing back and forth on the sidewalk, naked, in broad daylight, in an incident certain to raise questions over the viability of Russell's Invisible Children group.

    “You always hear people say, 'I'm so stressed out, I'm about to go crazy,'“ said Robert Thompson, director of the Bleier Centre for Television and Popular Culture at Syracuse University. “Still, the story of all this happening and then he literally is wigging out is very odd.”

    He said the episode could serve to divert attention from the warlord to Russell. “Now whenever you see a Kony story, it's about the guy, not Kony.”

    Kony, accused of terrorising northern Uganda for two decades, is wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes. He is accused of abducting children to use as fighters and sex slaves and is said to like hacking off limbs. Russell's wife, Danica, has said her husband would remain under hospital care for a number of weeks, and might not be able to return fully to his work at Invisible Children for months.

    In downtown San Diego, Invisible Children's office has been locked up.

    Jamaa kazidiwa na tunguli za Kony. Kudaadadeki! Honestly, this Kony thing will finally backfire, as it is not based on a real desire to save the "invisible children". It is just another cynical media production that aim at using African miseries for achieving selfish and egoistic gains!

    Na sintoshangaa kama wakianza kampeni mpya ya kusema Kony ameonekana akivinjari maeneo ya Turkana!
