KIGALI-RWANDA-Rwanda’s Foreign Minister and Government Spokesperson today expressed outrage at continued targeting of Rwandans in the DRC following the detention and torture of four Rwandans at Camp Katindo, a Congolese army facility.

Targeting Rwandans in DRC has been characterized by the hate speech peddled by Kinshasa government as a result of M23 pressure in Kibumba and Rumangabo at the same time

“This is an extremely serious incident – we have confirmation that one of the tortured Rwandans has died. We have asked the Government of the DRC to ensure that the mistreatment of Rwandan citizens stops immediately.” The statement from Rwanda’s foreign affairs Ministry argued.

Minister Mushikiwabo said that Rwanda had brought this case to the urgent attention of the Joint Verification Taskforce and warned against the resurgence of hate speech

“We have learned before that hate speech has consequences; that reckless political rhetoric costs lives. It is something our region must not be forced to endure ever again” Minister Mushikiwabo said

DRC government spokesperson has insisted that Rwanda is behind the mutineers who are threatening to take over South Kivu capital Goma. Rwanda has furiously denied the allegations before UN and many African forums.

Many refugees have arrived in Goma fleeing north of the town fighting. Katindo barracks is on alert and UN patrols has been beefed up with military tanks

Yesterday, UN helicopters bombarded in rebel positions in Kiwanja but no causalities reported.
