All African nations have cross-border communities, why does DRC reject its own?

Almost every country on the continent has identical communities with different nationalities, thanks to the insensitive partitioning of Africa by the imperial powers at the onset of colonialism.

In the East African region, Kenya has Kenyan Somalis of Somalia origin, Uganda has citizens of Rwandan descent, Tanzania has many Tanzanians who have ancestral origins in all its neighboring countries like Rwanda, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique and Uganda. In all these countries, there have not been any major issues with this colonial problem that emanated from the irrational demarcation of African borders.

However, Congo, former Zaire, has persistently persecuted Congolese whose only sin was to find themselves on the Congolese side of the border when the imperialists were done with dividing up their country. The persecution of Kinyarwanda-speaking Tutsi Congolese has taken on epidemic proportions. The regime of Tshisekedi, resorting to deranged accusations that Kinyarwanda-speaking Tutsi Congolese are “foreigners”, is determined not only to deprive them of their citizenship, but to commit genocide against them!

In this, the Tshisekedi regime and its military (FARDC) are working with the FDLR genocidaires. What on earth is going on?! The main target of this unholy alliance are the Kinyarwanda-speaking Congolese, with the real focus being on the Tutsi pastoralist communities of Masisi, Rutchuru, and Mulenge.

The whole world better wake up to the real campaign of genocide going on in eastern DRC right now!

The International Community should end the strange fixation on the M23 movement (which was born out of the urgent necessity by the Tutsi Congolese groups to defend themselves and assert their rights) and focus on the crimes of the Tshisekedi government, which is illegally trying to deprive whole sections of Congolese citizens their God-given rights.

As a consequence of the reckless, criminal acts of Tshisekedi’s FARDC and FDLR, insecurity in Eastern DRC has reached levels whereby it’s threatening regional security.

Unless these issues are addressed honestly and equitably, there can be no end in sight to insecurity in DRC.
