Congo Rebels: Kabila Securing Military Supplies From Korea

However, according to rebels, logistics from China and Korea were seen being offloaded from trucks in Kinshasha after “DRC paid balance to develop more adequate equipment, which can enable them to cope with the enemy.”

Kabila is facing his toughest challenge of his presidency as intelligence reports point to the fact that rebels are planning to topple him in less than two months.

Led by Col. Sultani Makenga, the rebels said they had decided to abandon seized towns “to ward off any possibility of confrontation of forces in these cities thus ensuring complete safety of civilian populations.”

The rebels recently abandoned FARDC in which they were integrated in 2009 under a peace deal brokered by the international community.

They broke ranks after DRC called for warlord Bosco Ntaganda’s arrest.

The international community has since accused neighbouring Rwanda of supporting the mutiny, allegations President Paul Kagame has vehemently denied.

The rebels said “the biggest responsibility in the degeneration of the national army, rests unquestionably on Joseph Kabila Kabange, who has sufficiently demonstrated his inability to manage the army of a country of continental dimensions (2,345 000 km2) and where communication, in all its dimensions, is poor.”

Should Kabila choose the path of war against the rebels, who have called for peace talks, the country is set for a new era of unprecedented turmoil.
