I am sick and tired of blaming bad governance and lack of discipline in Kinshasa on Rwanda.
The presence of the FDLR in the DRC is Rwanda’s security concern, and if anybody thinks Rwanda will take a neutral stance on this they have it coming.
It is not rocket science to understand the DRC’s insecurity.
As long as there is weak and poor management in Kinshasa there will not be peace in the DRC.
And who stands to gain from the chaos in Kinshasa? Western mineral companies who flourish from lack of management and fiscal control. Insecurity in the country assures their un-checked profits.
Does Rwanda gain from destabilizing the DRC? This is but a smoke-screen by the real culprits: foreigners who operate under the cover of confusion and bad management of State affairs to exploit the DRC’s seemingly endless minerals.
And the DRC’s never-ending tribal rivalries is not helping. The absence of a national vision is the nail in the DRC’s coffin.
