Minister Mushikiwabo said that it is was tragedy for the people of the eastern DRC that its government has chosen to fall for a big lie, and it is these people who would suffer from any resurgence of xenophobia.

“We understand that the government in the DRC is facing multiple challenges on several fronts and that using Rwanda as a scapegoat is an attempt to distract and deflect attention away from these domestic crises. We have said repeatedly that we are not involved, and there is no evidence to the contrary. The failure of DRC to fix its long-standing problems are unfortunately is spilling over to the neighbourhood”
