M23 Intensify Attacks In North Kivu in DRC As Peace Talks Continues in Nairobi

Thank you again my dear readers and welcome warmly to my daily news updates.

The war between the M23(March 23 Movement) rebels and the Democratic Republic of Congo(DRC) started a long time ago. Though in 2013 DRC announced defeating them.

The M23 rebels reemerged in 2021 November and it has been involved in heavy fighting in the eastern part of DRC where they have occupied some towns and they are targeting Goma City which is the biggest in Kivu Province.

The regional leaders headed by President Evariste Ndayishimiye of Burundi and former President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya have been at the forefront of ensuring that there is peace in DRC.

They are holding peace talks here in Nairobi together with some of the militia groups from DRC which is meant to find a lasting solution concerning the war. They have been urging M23 fighters to a ceasefire to allow peace talks to continue smoothly.

But this isn't followed as M23 rebels are still fighting. Today Litsan Choukran on his official Twitter he has indicated that still, heavy fighting continued as M23 try to capture Goma City.
