Even as regional groups try to resolve the issue, the fight between the Congolese government and the M23 rebels has gotten worse. The rebels recently declared a cease-fire to allow for peaceful negotiations but despite their willingness to abide by the terms of the Luanda agreement they have not yet left some regions.
They subsequently requested a meeting with Uhuru Kenyatta a former president who was a key negotiator of the agreement last month. Uhuru has arranged a meeting in Nairobi where he will preside over talks between the Congolese government and the M23 rebels after the rebels requested that he do so. The conference has already been confirmed by the EAC and it is slated to begin tomorrow.
Attendance is essential from all combat participants including M23 rebel representatives. Many people trust Uhuru, who is Kenya's peace ambassador to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He has gained the trust of other African nations as well as Europe thanks to his recent accomplishment in bringing peace to Ethiopia.
