Former president Uhuru Kenyatta has urged the congolese nationals meeting in Nairobi to embrace forgiveness in their search for peace as this will provide a long lasting solution to their conflict. Uhuru is leading the the Nairobi Peace Process which involves all the East African Countries that have come together to help Congo find a solution to its conflict. The conference has different people represented which includes armed groups, civil society groups and survivors of the conflict. The M23 rebels are also represented by about 50 individuals.
“Though the pain from the atrocities committed against you may be too much in the last 20 years as lives have been lost, animals stolen and minerals stolen by foreign nations who are happy to spur conflict as they steal your minerals leaving your children unable to go to school and your mothers unable to give birth in hospital, let us embrace a forgiving heart and agree to unite to bring lasting peace to the region,” Uhuru said.
The former president assured the two parties conflicting that the Nairobi process has no plan of dividing any piece of land in the DRC but to come up with a solution on how they can coexist peacefully and solve conflicts without having to use arms. A separate agreement dubbed the Luanda process which is linked to the Nairobi process also seek to solve the external conflict between DRC and Rwanda.
