Former President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to host the first of mediation talks between the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) government and the M-23 Rebels who have displaced millions in the Eastern DRC.
The meetings are slated to kick off in Nairobi on the 21st, this Monday.
Yesterday in Goma, Mr. Kenyatta called for urgent intervention in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
”All these children, mothers and old people we have seen have become strangers in their country. Whatever our differences, let us have pity on them and stop the war before we start talking.”
”What I have seen is a catastrophe, what I have seen will be a humanitarian disaster if we are not careful. This war must be stopped immediately,” the former Head of State said.
The M23 has recently seized swathes of territory in North Kivu province and is edging towards Goma, an important commercial hub of one million people on the Rwandan border.
