The East Africa Community Regional Forces (EACRF) and the Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) have achieved another important success in the Democratic Republic of the Congo's eastern region (DRC).
It has only been a few months since KDF soldiers entered the DRC to join the EACRF, whose mission is to protect the lives and property of the Congolese people from rebel attacks. Even so, notable victories have already been recorded.
One of the most deadly armed organizations in the DRC, the M23 rebels, declared today in a statement that they are preparing to turn over control of their position to the EACRF.
As of tomorrow, January 5, 2023, they would hand over authority of their military camp in RUMANGABO to "full responsibility of the EACRF," according to a statement made to the media by M23 Political Spokesperson Lawrence Kanyuka.
He emphasized how the course of action is consistent with the commitments made at the Angolan peace summit in November.
"The M23 remains committed to implementing the agreements made at the Luanda Mini-Decisions Summit and supports the Region's ongoing efforts to establish peace in the DRC. The M23 will hand over complete control of the Military Camp at Rumangabo to the EACRF on January 5th, 2023." He spoke only in part.
