KIGALI – A new era is starting. This is what Foreign Affaires Minister Dr Charles Murigande announced yesterday when asked about DR Congo’s declared commitment to disarm ex-FAR/Interahamwe.
Addressing a press conference yesterday on the Friday Nairobi pact between the two countries, Murigande said Kinshasa now considers FDLR – which is an amalgamation of ex-FAR and Interahamwe militia – as a Genocide group.
“In the (Nairobi) meeting I witnessed a change in attitude and language on the part of Congolese officials.
There seem to be a new resolve to deal with the FDLR problem,” Murigande said at the Foreign Affairs ministry headquarters in Nyarugenge, Kigali.
