A dossier on the situation in the DRC and the degree of armament held by the various actors was presented at a United Nations meeting in New York, according to a report by The Nation, which the KDF is assisting in the effort to keep DRC safe.

The M23 rebels, an acronym for the March 23 movement, are reportedly better equipped than the DRC military, the KDF, and other armed forces put together.

The east African giant Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) is now participating in the MONUSCO peacekeeping mission in Goma, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), to add its voice to the ongoing conflict in the mineral-rich but war-prone country.

The discoveries followed a unanimous resolution by the United Nations security council meeting in New York to let the DRC government to purchase arms at France's request.

The DRC had previously been forbidden from ever purchasing guns, and it was said that the rebels were better armed because Kinshasa was unable to acquire the vital weapons required to defeat the M23.
