3000 to 4000 African Soldiers will get deployed with an offensive mandate in Eastern Congo to fight all negative armed groups, according to ICGLR agreement.

A hundred Tanzanian soldiers will arrive in Goma to set up the mixed force with 100FARDC and 100 M23 at the airport.

M23 rebel group boss, Gen. Sultan Makenga told Great Lakes Voice, that his men will be leaving Goma tomorrow at 10:00Am local time. “Hope Monesco will not move to block our way and take our equipments and ammunition”

273 Policemen have arrived at the port in Goma from Bukavu. Gen. Olenga of Congolese regular army FARDC said: “it’s not negotiations that will bring peace, war will lead to peace.” He demands orders for war back in Kinshasa.
