Heavy Security Patrol In Goma DRC As Soldiers Successfully Takes Over Rumagambo Territory

The East Africa Community Regional Force (EACRF) troops took over the Rumagambo territory, including the strategic Rumangabo military camp located 42kms North of Goma town, after the withdrawal of M23, an occasion witnessed by a delegation from the Ad Hoc Committee and the Extended Joint Verification Mechanism led by the Deputy Force Commander Brigadier General Emmanuel Kaputa.

The Deputy Force Commander said that the takeover of RUMANGABO signifies yet another critical milestone in the ongoing efforts to bring peace and stability to Eastern DRC.

Brigadier General Kaputa reiterated the need for all parties to the conflict to embrace the cease-fire as outlined in the Luanda Communiqué of 23rd November 2022 and the subsequent deliberations agreed upon from the Nairobi process.

The Ugandan military confirmed it troops intercepted and killed ADF rebels who were attempting to launch attacks and raid villages in Ntoroko District in the western part of the country.

In the ensuing combat, one UPDF soldier and two civilians, whose details could not be immediately established, were also killed.

If DRC President Felix Tshisekedi has ever dreamt of lifting a magic wand to have M23 rebels and Congolese Tutsi instantly vanish, the mini-summit in Angola last week might have been the closest he’ll ever get to realising such a dream.

Congo's M23 rebel group says it’s ready to withdraw from occupied territory in the east of the country and will lend support to regional peace-making efforts despite not being represented in talks. It also confirmed its commitment to a previously agreed ceasefire.
