Kony was an ethnic Acholi, a group native to northern Uganda who suffered terribly under the brutal eight year military dictatorship of Idi Amin which ended in 1979.
In 1997, partly because of his brief experience as a judge in Uganda and because of his respected position of Bishop of Stepney, Sentamu was asked and agreed to serve as an advisor to a judicial inquiry into the racially motivated killing of black college student, Stephen Lawrence, which had occurred three years prior.
n 1921, he chaired the Pan-African Congress in London and, in 1922, he became the Labour Party’s secretary election agent for Shapuril Saklatrala, an Indian-born communist activist in North Battersea. He worked for Saklatrala until 1924 when the Communist and Labour Parties split.
Before and after his gynecological experiments, he also tested surgical treatments on enslaved Black children.
