Bisiimwa, who is expected to ink a peace deal with DRC next Monday in Kampala, states the conduct of the government officials and United Nations mission in the restive eastern region of the country does not inspire confidence that the rebels will get justice in Kinshasha.

The M23 leader said several CNDP members were brutally eliminated after signing the peace agreement with DRC in 2009.

“They remember many massacres occurred after being demobilized at the end of previous rebellion. Therefore, they decided to rely on the wisdom of you Mr. President and position as Mediator of the dialogue between the DRC Government the Movement of March 23 in the hope that you will provide them a secure environment as peace negotiations proceed,” wrote Bisiimwa.

M23 early this week renounced the rebellion, saying they wanted to give peace a chance.

The move followed heavy bombardment of the rebels’ bases in Chanzu, Rumangabo, Rutshuru, Runyonyi, Kiwanja and Mabenga.

The Movement’s military commander, Brig Sultani Makenga on Wednesday led 1,500 men to Mgahinga national park where they were disarmed by the UPDF.

Uganda says it will not hand over the fighters until a peace agreement is signed next week.

“We remain hopeful that the concerns of these ex-combatants find from your Excellency, a response that could guarantee a smooth process of disarmament, demobilization and social reintegration,” he added.

He further said more M23 fighters remain in Congo.

“We remain committed to the idea that addressing the root causes of the conflict is the only remedy to ensure peace in the short and long term in DRC,” said Bisiimwa.
