In Rutshuru, the displaced threaten to return to their villages occupied by the M23



For about two months, the M23 terrorists, accused of being supported by Rwanda, continue to monopolize the city of Bunagana, and several other villages in the grouping of Jomba, Bweza, Busanza and Kisigari, in the territory of Rutshuru , in North Kivu.

This situation caused the displacement of thousands of civilians towards the city of Rutshuru center. They live there, they say, in inhuman conditions and say they are tired. “We are tired of living in inhuman conditions, in schools, churches and under the stars in stadiums…”, they say.

This is how, faced with this situation, these displaced people from the various villages occupied by the M23 rebels are threatening to return to their homes.

In a correspondence sent on Tuesday to the provincial military authority, the latter are planning a series of ghost town days and a sit-in, this Thursday, September 15, 2022, in front of the Rutshuru territory office, in order to encourage the government to take action in line with their demands.

“It is with deep regret following a very worrying security and humanitarian situation in our abandoned villages as well as in the host communities in Rutshuru Territory, that the steering committee for displaced victims of the M23 crisis, take advantage of this opportunity come to your high authority to seize the organization of dead city days and sit-ins at the Rutshuru Territory office from Thursday, September 15, 2022 to express the cries of distress and the need to return to our villages respective because tired of living in inhuman conditions, in church schools and under the stars in the stadiums and this until the government finds a solution to bring us back to our places of origin”, they write to the military governor of the North Kivu.

“The displaced persons mobilized will follow the route from their respective sites and host families to the Rutshuru Territory Office for the sit-in”, add these displaced persons.

The security situation remains volatile in the east of the country. While calm has been observed for several days on several front lines against the M23, messages are multiplying to call on the military authorities to relaunch the offensives, with a view to liberating the city of Bunagana and other villages occupied by the terrorists.
