The demobilised M23 rebel Movement has warned the government of DRC that it is yet to “cease to exist”, viagra buy cautioning that failure to implement the terms of Nairobi Peace Declarations could pose serious “consequences” for the country.

“The peace process derived from the Declarations of December 12th, view 2013 in Nairobi runs the risk of sinking,” said the Movement’s political leader, Bertrand Bisiimwa.

“Therefore, the M23 Movement will not take responsibility for the forthcoming situation,” he added in a letter to regional leaders seen by ChimpReports on Thursday morning.

The rebel movement’s leaders and hundreds of combatants fled to Uganda in December 2013 following heavy bombardment of their territories by a joint force comprising military units from South Africa, Tanzania, DRC and Malawi.

M23’s military leader Brig Sultan Makenga is said to be residing in Uganda.

Writing this week to Presidents Eduardo Dos Santos (Angola), Yoweri Museveni (Uganda) and Joseph Kabila (DRC), Bisiimwa said almost two years since the peace deal was inked in Nairobi, Kinshasa has “refused to implement all its undertaken commitments despite numerous appeals and ultimatums from the United Nations, the African Union, the SADC, ICGLR along with several partners for peace in the DRC.”

Bisiimwa further revealed that DRC has refused to honour the terms of Amnesty given to former M23 combatants with many being killed or tortured at military detention facilities.

He gave the example of Bonane Rwamakuba Gahene, Head of Bweza’s M23 grouping whom he said was killed and beheaded in Rubare, Rutshuru territory by armed men in regular Army’s uniform on September 28, 2014.

Mr Félix Shamba, Head of Rugari and Kisigari Administrative Management post was reportedly given amnesty but later shot dead by the army at his residence in Rugari on October 19, 2014.

It was revealed that hundreds of M23 members are currently languishing in the country’s jails.

Possible rebellion?

The latest developments have raised concerns that M23 could resort to a military confrontation since they are yet to see a political solution to their grievances.

The rebel group had moved as far as Goma, seizing the strategic town from DRC troops.

President Museveni and his Rwandan counterpart Paul Kagame prevailed over Makenga to ensure his men leave Goma.

This would later lead to a peace process which culminated into the Nairobi declarations that saw M23 lay down weapons and demobilise.

Bisiimwa pointed out that the DRC Government made a forced repatriation, kidnapping 120 members of the M23 Movement cantoned at military camp of Bihanga in Uganda where they have taken refuge since November 2013.

“This situation had led to the abuses of these ex-combatants hence the majority had no other choice but to flee the military camp to settle in different refugee camps located in dozens of kilometres of Bihanga. Many more attempts by the Government were conducted thereafter but without concrete results,” said Bisiimwa.

“Yet this repatriation could have been smoothly if and only if it complied with the Declarations of Nairobi as recommended by the Heads of State of countries members of the ICGLR in their various summits held in Luanda in Angola.”

Eastern Congo crisis

Bisiimwa also tackled the insecurity in eastern Congo, saying it has reached its peak with daily assassinations of prominent individuals, massacres of civilians, raping of women, kidnaps, bank robberies and destruction of public transport vehicles.

He said military operations against FDLR failed before beginning while those directed against the ADF have flopped, causing the death of over 500 people in the territory of Beni in North Kivu.

With more than 40 armed groups operating in Eastern DRC, Bisiimwa said the situation needs urgent intervention.

He further alleged a serious deterioration of living conditions in various demobilization centers which have been transformed into jails.

“Over 100 ex-combatants and their dependents have died from hunger and disease between January and September 2014 in Kotakoli Military camp in Equatorial province in DRC,” said Bisiimwa.

NGO Human Rights Watch recently said, “The Congolese government negligence towards these veterans and their family is criminal.”

Regional defence ministers recently said Uganda must had over M23 rebels to DRC.

Army spokesperson Lt Col Paddy Ankunda expressed Uganda’s readiness to return the former rebels to their country.
