North Kivu: “We are going to recover Bunagana”, says Lieutenant-General Constant Ndima



Lieutenant-General Constant Ndima Kongba, military governor of North Kivu province, reassured that the Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (FARDC) will recover the city of Bunagana which is controlled by the M23 rebels.

The military governor gave these assurances during a press briefing held in the city of Goma on Monday, September 12, 2022.

“We are going to get Bunagana back. We are in operation, this is our territory. We must recover the situation at all costs,” said Lieutenant General Constant Ndima.

As a reminder, it has been 3 months, this Tuesday, September 13, since the city of Bunagana was occupied by the rebels of the March 23 Movement (M23). Civil society and local authorities in Rutshuru say they are concerned that the rebellion is consolidating its presence in this region.

According to local notables, the rebellion has already installed a parallel administration in the city, where it has appointed its leaders and charged monthly taxes to a few inhabitants who remained there.

Bunagana was an important customs post for the revenue of the province. The city is located more than 100 km northeast of Goma, Jomba group in the territory of Rutshuru, on the border with Uganda.
