Uhuru condemns killings in DRC, calls for ceasefire

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta has condemned the escalation of hostilities, killings and displacements in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

In his capacity as the Facilitator of the East African Community (EAC)-led Nairobi peace process on the restoration of peace and stability in eastern DRC, Uhuru called for immediate cessation of hostilities in the region.

“The Facilitator appeals to all parties engaged in such acts to immediately cease their armed offensives and hostilities, so as to allow continued unhindered and sustained humanitarian access and to give a chance to a return to peace and the pursuit of a non-military solution to the crisis in the region through the EAC-Led Nairobi Peace Process,” he said.

The Eastern DRC is the site of ethnic conflict and violent resource competition involving the M23 rebels and Congolese security forces.
