Hope in DRC after M23 rebel members met Uhuru

Peace in the DRC is in the offing as M23 rebel leaders met Uhuru Kenyatta, former Kenyan President, in Mombasa, Kenya.

The meeting, held in Mombasa, in Kenya, brought together M23 leaders and former President Uhuru Kenyatta, who is the leader arbitrator to bring to an end a war that has been raging in North Kivu, DRC Congo. North Kivu has been the most volatile region in the entire Eastern DRC – but that has changed in the last four weeks when displaced persons began returning to their homes.

During the time when the M23 rebel leaders met Uhuru, both sides encouraged each other to embrace peace for the welfare of other vulnerable people who haven’t been at peace during those trying moments in North Kivu. “In a demonstration of goodwill and willingness to work towards the settlement of the situation in North Kivu, the leaders of the M-23 agree to continue with an orderly withdrawal and to adhere to a strict cease-fire,” Office of the former president said in a statement.

Mr Kenyatta assumed his duties, as a peace ambassador, after being assigned the role by his successor: President William Ruto.
