Former President Uhuru Kenyatta hopes that the peace talks in Nairobi III will help find a lasting solution to the conflict in the east of the DRC.

Uhuru said that this would only happen if the various parties involved in the negotiations were committed to the process of restoring peace.

“At the end of the meeting, we will announce a decision that is close to the hearts of the people of the DRC and all people around the world,” said an optimistic peace advocate from the EAC.

Uhuru expressed his commitment to the process, noting that he was confident in the full support of the Congolese government led by President Felix Tshisekedi. Serge Tchibangu, Special Envoy and Adviser, representing Professor Tshisekedi, was present.

Uhuru reiterated that his role in the dialogue was purely a political recommendation and did not violate Congo's sovereignty.

Uhuru also stressed the need for a ceasefire between rebel factions, saying several international partners are ready to help rebuild the war-torn country.
