Nkunda exits

January 6, 2009

According to different sources, Bosco Ntagana has replaced Laurent Nkunda as head of CNDP. It still has to be confirmed at the official webpage of this armed group.

Some Congolese media talk about Rwanda choosing Ntagana in order to harden peace negotiations, while other stress that his replacement is a consequence of the recent UN report released by a panel of experts on the DRC.

It is a worrying move taking place in a key moment. The replacement at the head of CNDP happens just before the beggining of the third round of the current peace talks.

The fate of hundreds of thousands of men, women and children living as IDPs will lie tomorrow on that table of negotiations. Unfortunately, I am afraid that none of the speakers sitting on both sides of that table will truly care about them.


Today´s news picture a split rather an a replacement. To be continued.

    This more or less confirms the comments I just added, based on direct and verified contacts with the CNDP.As I wrote,facts might not always be easy to verify, the least one is entitled to expect that the media at least seem to make an effôrt and try.If only out of respect for the Congolese People.I am actually trying to have some kind of more and more reliable sources, to allow me to at least doublecheck, if not triple or more, whatever information I obtain.
