Former President Uhuru Succeeds Again As Leaders Agree To Stop Fighting In DRC

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta's international star is shining, literally. The former head of state is moving from one achievement to the next in a span of few weeks in what has been termed as a difficult role in restoration of peace in the east african region. This follows his appointment for the role by president William Ruto roughly two months ago.

Today, the former president has once again managed to convince senior leaders to stop fighting in the democratic republic of Congo (DRC).

As multiple reports indicate, the former president has successfully convinced DRC president Felix Tshisekedi and his Rwandan counterpart Paul Kagame who have agreed to a ceasefire. DRC is accused of being behind the Tsutsi dominated M23 rebels in eastern democratic republic of Congo.

What this means is that there is likely to be an end of the fighting with leaders instead resorting to peaceful resolution. This breakthrough means Uhuru is staring at another successful mission after recently convincing Ethiopia and Tigray to stop fighting and talk.

"Former President Kenyatta, Presidents Kagame and Tshisekedi agree on need for immediate cease fire in the DRC-Rwanda conflict," Citizen TV reports.
