“Those who come to equity must come with clean hands; Museveni must step aside for lasting peace and political stability to prevail in DRC given his poor history in antagonizing in the country,” Lucima added.

Uganda and Rwanda deny baking the M23.

They insist Kabila must address the underlying political problems facing DRC and also extend state authority across the eastern part of the country.

However, Lucima further insisted “those citizens in the DRC that took up arms against the Kinshasha government must be brought to book for committing crimes against humanity, war crimes, rape and recruitment of child rebels.”

UPC also hailed the Kinshasha government for not signing the peace agreement with the defeated M23 rebels at State House, Entebbe on Monday.

Kinshasha government maintains that it would only sign a ‘declaration’ that provides that M23 has agreed to end its existence as an armed group.


Government further insists it won’t agree to terms of governance with a non-existent entity as M23 is not a registered political party in that country.
