For the MP Nzangi Muhindo, the security situation requires elected in the province to provide support to the civilian population.

He recalled that members of all constituencies of two Kivu provinces were published Friday, July 13, a statement inviting the Head of State, Joseph Kabila to change “the entire chain of command” FARDC and police to end “the betrayal”.
“We came with a very specific agenda, it can lend our support to the people on the occasion of the parliamentary recess,” said Muhindo Nzangi who promised to lobby the government to assist people in displacement.

The elected official has indicated that these parliamentary recess will allow members to learn “about the causes of repeated military debacles,” adding that “for some time, our army is not capable of fighting the M23.”

In this statement, these members have also asked the government to file a complaint against Rwanda to the Security Council of the United Nations, “so that it ceases to serve as a field of designing, financing, recruitment and rear base of the M23 and any other movement to destabilize the DRC.

Since May, the province of North Kivu is experiencing a new rebellion called the M23. This politico-military movement was formed by officers of the former rebels of the CNDP rebellion.

The agreement provided including the integration of rebel fighters into the army and the police and the allocation of functions to civilian executives of the former rebellion.

The Congolese government accuses Rwanda of supporting the M23, describing him as responsible for the recruitment channels of this rebellion. The claims Rwanda has repeatedly furious denied
