UN – The Meeting of Major Challenges for the DRC: Demonstrating the Rwandan Involvement and the Ineffectiveness of MONUSCO

A few days before the opening of the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly, the diplomatic community of the United Nations, together with the people of New York, prepare for the annual arrival of heads of state and government around the world, after two years of disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The meeting is of particular importance for the Democratic Republic of Congo attacked by neighboring Rwanda under cover of M23 terrorists who have occupied the city of Bunagana, on the border with Uganda, for months. Because, with the latest report from UN experts demonstrating in black and white that the Rwandan army has intervened in the DRC in recent months, directly and in support of armed groups, Kinshasa will have to put all the batteries in motion in this decisive round. This is an opportune time to meet and convince all the pressure groups to demand not only the withdrawal of Rwandans from the DRC, but also the taking of measures against a State which violates international laws, which kills and massacres innocent populations in eastern Congo. And with the tension which is at its peak between the blue helmets of Monusco (United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo) and the civilians of North Kivu, better still, the entire Congolese population demanding departure of Monusco, Kinshasa and New York should look each other straight in the eye for an evolution that promotes peace.

These Israeli drones that proved the Rwandan aggression and the occupation of Bunagana

The legend of the aerial photos, attached to the annexes of the UN report, presents them as RDF soldiers, insisting on the presence of a Rwandan flag on one of their uniforms. On the same day, the M23 rebels took over this strategic town, a commercial hub in North Kivu, on the border with Uganda and a few kilometers from Rwanda.

These small fixed-wing craft called Spylite, which were not notified to the United Nations, operated from Goma (North Kivu province). On the night of June 13, they captured images of columns of armed men presented as Rwanda Defense Force (RDF) troops going to Bunagana.

The next day, another Israeli drone seized a gathering of 200 suspected Rwandan soldiers in this border town with Uganda. “About two hundred men, all equipped with similar uniforms, weapons and backpacks,” noted the French daily Le Monde.

While the three MONUSCO drones – two of which were in no condition to fly – showed their limits, the Israeli devices played a decisive role in collecting evidence on the collusion between RDF and M23. They made it possible to demolish the categorical denials of the power of Paul Kagame, and to counterbalance the caution in this file of the Western chancelleries and the United Nations.

Since the resumption of clashes with the armed group M23, the Congolese security services have used aerial observation to support their accusations around Kigali’s alleged support for the rebel movement. For this, the Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (FARDC) rely on three drones provided by the Israeli company BlueBird Aero Systems.

These Israeli drones allowed President Félix Tshisekedi to collect solid evidence of the presence of Rwandan troops in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Irrefutable evidence that allowed United Nations experts to confirm the Congolese thesis of Rwandan aggression.

It has been two months since the town of Bunagana and a few other localities in Rutshuru territory (North Kivu) have been occupied by M23 fighters. The military solution is stalling and the diplomatic option is not advancing.

This session of the United Nations should be an opportunity for the DRC to demonstrate to the concerts of nations the irrefutable proof of the Rwandan involvement and the inefficiency of MONUSCO in the eastern part of the country.
