Every day it becomes ever more apparent that Congolese rulers are like irresponsible children who fan trouble, then rush to cry foul, trying to turn others (Rwanda) into a scapegoat for their own problems.
This time around, Tshisekedi ruling party, UDPS, blatantly wrote to U.S President Joe Biden requesting him to “impose sanctions on Rwanda” over what they desperately call “Rwanda’s support to M23 rebel movements”. But we all know that Kinshasa has failed to produce evidence to back its allegations.
Tshisekedi and his inner circle disparaged the fact that the United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken who concluded his visits to Rwanda and DRC a fortnight ago called them out to own up and fix their country in lieu of blaming neighbors for their predicaments.
Particularly, Secretary Blinken openly called upon President Tshisekedi to end the continued crimes against humanity – including a silent genocide – which Congolese authorities are inflicting against Congolese Kinyarwanda-speaking Tutsi citizens.
However, the failed Tshisekedi regime has steadfastly ignored Blinken’s demands and more importantly the elephant in the room: the rampant internal conflicts and inability to address them as well as DRC army-FARDC’s unholy alliance with FDLR – the notorious group born of ex-FAR and Interahamwe genocidaires.
It’s important to remind readers that Rwanda’s stand has always been to urge the Congolese authorities to address their leadership failures. DRC leadership should endeavour to address their failures in leadership and address their internal socio-political conflicts that led to some Congolese nationals taking up arms to defend their rights.
Equally, the world should learn that Tshisekedi regime is masterminding a silent genocide whilst being in bed with the blacklisted terrorist- FDLR despite several recommendations by various regional bodies to uproot the genocidal outfit in the interests of regional peace and stability.
Tshisekedi should endeavour to clean up his house other than always falsely whining against Rwanda.
