One of the deceased was identified as Corporal Mbanza Numba Bisogolo. His slain colleague could not be readily identified because he was immediately whisked away during the gun battle.

Mbanza’s body was last evening handed over to the DRC Government in Rusura village, Busasamana sector in Rubavu district, the newspaper reported.

The incident comes against the backdrop of heightened tensions following a series of United Nations reports that Rwanda and recently Uganda were arming the M23 mutineers in Kivu.

Kigali and Kampala vehemently denied the allegations.

The body of the deceased was received and identified by DRC’s head of 8th Regional Command, Col Everest Somo Kakule.

Kakule declined to speak to the press after receiving the body. Defence Attachés from Uganda and France were on site to witness the handover of the body.

Mbanza’s identification documents and recovered ammunition (including one sub machine gun, 173 rounds of ammunition and six complete magazines) were retained by officials from the Joint Verification Mechanism (JVM).

Col Gabriel Ntirandekura, the team leader of the JVM said that a thorough investigation about the incidence would be conducted and a full report compiled.

Available information shows that Mbanza was a member of the 69th Battalion mainly comprised of military intelligence personnel.

According to reliable sources, at about 12:00 p.m on Saturday, a contingent of between 70 and 100 soldiers, including Mbanza, illegally crossed and opened fire on Rwandan military observers about 400metres into the Rwandan territory.

During an interview, RDF Spokesperson Brig Gen Joseph Nzabamwita said RDF soldiers acted in self Defence.

We were alerted by residents and our soldiers fought back when they started shooting at us,” he said.

Nzabamwita said that one RDF soldier was injured in the process and is currently admitted at Kanombe Military Hospital.

The RDC spy squads’ exact motive remains unclear but security sources in western have told Chimpreports that all intelligence briefs indicate that DRC intends to open war on Rwanda.

“We are tightening security at all our borders with Rwanda and Congo. There is a heavy military buildup on the part of Congo which we suspect could lead to a full-scale war,” said a military source.

It is important to note that the Congolese government in October suddenly shut down their borders with Rwanda as tensions hit boiling levels, with over 500 traders left stranded.

Most of those stranded were long distance traders who use Rwanda as transit to the DRC as well as businessmen and women who operate across the border towns of the two countries.

At the Rusizi 1 (Rusiizi-Bukavu) border, 170 Congolese were stranded on the Rwandan side while 150 Rwandans were stranded on the DRC side.

And, at the Corniche border post (Rubavu–Goma) close to 70 Congolese were stranded on the Rwandan side and 100 Rwandans on the DRC side.

Rwanda, Burundi, and the DRC, grouped under the Economic Community for the Great Lakes Region (CEPGL), April 2010, agreed to increase border operation hours to ease movement of people and goods.

CONGO PREPPING FOR WAR

DRC government spokesman Lambert Mende last month told press in that they had spotted fresh contingents of Rwandan soldiers entering Eastern Congo.

Such statements, coupled with UN reports accusing Rwanda and Uganda of backing the M23 rebels have since fanned the flames of the conflict and undermined efforts to restore peace in Kivu.

Rwanda has in the past categorically denied backing the rebels whose leadership has vowed to launch fresh attacks and capture Kivu provincial capital Goma if Kinshasha does not hold peace talks with them.

The possibility of a breakout of a fresh war was reinforced by President Joseph Kabila’s recent announcement he would send some 10,000 more troops to the area.

“The head of state has informed members of CIAT [the International Committee to Accompany the Transition] of the deployment,” Kudura Kasongo, Kabila’s spokesman, told IRIN a couple of weeks ago in the capital, Kinshasa.

CIAT is made up of ambassadors accredited to Kinshasa from the five permanent members of the UN Security Council as well as Belgium, the former colonial power, South Africa and others.

“Within two weeks, two to three brigades, amounting to 10,000 men, will arrive in the east of the country, precisely in North Kivu Province, to protect the civilian population and to stop aggression by Rwandan troops,” Kasongo said.

Kabila’s announcement comes one week after Rwanda’s president, Paul Kagame, warned he would strike at Rwandan Hutu militants poised to attack their homeland.

Speaking to journalists early this year at Urugwiro Village, Kagame said his country is ready to repulse any attacks.

“We are very prepared for any attack. Whoever finds us here should know we shall fight. We shall fight any one who finds us here (Rwanda),” warned Kagame.

“Congo’s problems must stop being Rwanda’s problems. Congo should also not run away from their problems. The International community should stop acting as if the problems in Congo are not their responsibility,” he added.
