Peace Talk Continues In Nairobi As M23 Intensify Attack In North Kivu In DRC.

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

The war between the rebels of the March 23rd Movement (M23) and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) began a long time ago. Although the Democratic Republic of the Congo announced in 2013 their defeat.

The M23 rebels resurfaced in November 2021 and engaged in fierce fighting in the eastern part of the DRC where they occupied some towns and are targeting Goma, the largest city in Kivu Province.

Regional leaders headed by Burundian President Evariste Ndayishimiye and former Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta have been at the forefront of ensuring peace in the DRC.

They are holding peace talks here in Nairobi with some militia groups from the Democratic Republic of the Congo with the aim of finding a permanent solution regarding the war. They have been urging the M23 militants to cease fire to allow the peace talks to proceed smoothly.

But this was not followed through as the M23 rebels were still fighting. Today Litsan Choukran on his official Twitter indicated that heavy fighting continues with M23 attempting to capture Goma.
