DRC Congo Situation Gets Worse, Uhuru Left Alone As Army Ignores Him To Fight For Themselves

Separate reports indicate that former President Uhuru Kenyatta has dealt a major blow to the mediation phase as armed groups withdraw from peace talks.

The Banyamulenge, an armed self-defense group of the Congolese people, has pulled out of peace talks in Nairobi, citing new attacks by Twirwaneho, another militant in eastern DR Congo.

As the group debated, it said the Mai Mai attack on November 30 killed several people in Gakangara, Muliza and Biziba villages.

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta's letter to the Nairobi peace talks condemned the group's alleged ethnic cleansing. The group said the attackers had the motive to remove them from the ethnic map of the Democratic Republic of Congo and force them to leave the country.

Twirwaneho said he does not want peace as the rebels represented in Nairobi continue to block efforts to bring peace to the region. A lot is still expected to arise by the end of the day as fresh details keep coming up.
