PROGRESS ON PEACE: Uhuru Visit Goma

The facilitator of the peace process in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Uhuru Kenyatta, is in Goma.

He is due to meet Congolese Minister for Regional Integration-Mbusa Nyamwisi and the Deputy Prime Minister in charge of defence-Jean-Pierre Bemba.

Together with members of the Congolese government, the former Kenyan president is expected to assess the peace process in the eastern part of the DRC, where the ceasefire between the FARDC (DRC army) and the M23 rebels is still fragile, and where armed groups have been imposing their law for years.

Kenyatta’s arrival comes at a time when the ceasefire is beginning to break down, with sporadic fighting between the M23 and the ‘Wazalendo’ armed groups who claim to be defending Congolese territory.

The agenda for the Goma meeting includes a discussion on the cantonment of the M23 in the Rumangabo camp in North Kivu, in the east of the country.
