Tutu Fellow Victor Ochen has been endorsed for the 2015 Nobel Peace prize by Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni. Ochen and the organisation he founded, African Youth Initiative (AYINET), was jointly nominated earlier this year by the American Friends Service Committee. In it's nomination letter, the AFSC highlighted the impact of the conflict between the government of Uganda and the Lord's Resistance Army. Millions of people have been detrimentally affected, including Ochen, who was a childhood victim of the war.
