Fear of genocide has engulfed the Democratic Republic of Congo especially the Eastern Region that has seen fightings between the M23 rebels and the DRC back government forces.
"The current violence is a warning sign of societal fragility and proof of the enduring presence of the conditions that allowed large-scale hatred and violence to erupt into a genocide in the past,” Nderitu said.
This comes as the M23 rebels continue to accuse the DRC government led by President Felix Tshisekedi of not honouring several agreements and continue to persecute Kinyarwanda speaking Congolese.
The DRC government has constantly pointed fingers at Rwanda for aiding the M23 rebels, an accusation that President Paul Kagame led government has denied.
Nderitu has called President Felix Tshisekedi led government to ensure to ensure its primary responsibility of preventing atrocity crimes against humanity.
