Kenya Disassociates With DR Congo Rebels Alliance

1 min read

Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi on Sunday cleared his Ministry name from involvement in a Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) rebel groups alliance that was launched in Nairobi.

In a statement, the CS noted that Kenya had not played a part in the meeting neither did the state, headed by President William Ruto, facilitate the press conference that saw the reports get to the press.

“Kenya strongly disassociates itself from any utterances or activities likely to injure the peace and security of the friendly Nation of DRC and has commenced investigation to determine the identities of the makers of the statement and the extent to which their utterances fall outside constitutionally protected speech,” read the statement in part.

“Kenya further affirms its non-involvement in the internal affairs of DRC and commits to continue supporting the peace, security, and democratic consolidation of the country.”

The statement comes days after DRC recalled its ambassadors from Kenya and Tanzania after a new Congolese military alliance that includes rebels was launched in Nairobi.

The withdrawal of the ambassadors was announced by Congo’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Alain Tshibanda on Saturday, December 17, 2023.
