Kenyan Troops Heighten Patrols In DRC Amid Festive Season.The Kenyan Contingent deployed under the United Nations Organisation Stabilition Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo ( MONUSCO) has intensified patrols in the general area of Eringeti, Eastern- DRC this festive season.
During the festive period operation, Kenyan troops work in close coordination with the Congolese Force, (FARDC) and the South Africa National Defense Forces (SANDF) to intensify patrols in the area so as to deny militia groups freedom of movement.
The troops also interacted with locals in the area who appreciated the presence of Kenyan troops in the area and pledged their continued support in the restoration of peace.
Eringeti has been experiencing frequent attacks by suspected ADF elements and other local militias. The heightened patrols continue to have a positive impact as normalcy has returned in the region.
International pressure is growing on Rwanda as France and Germany become the latest parties to openly accuse the country of supporting armed rebels in eastern Congo. This could affect the years-long foreign aid that Paul Kagame's government has enjoyed. For months, renewed attacks by the M23 rebels have angered Congo’s government and led to talk of war in eastern Congo, a volatile region that's rich in minerals.
