M23 Movement Condemns Kinshasa Regime’s Ceasefire Violation Amid Escalating Tensions

In a press release today, the M23 Movement Directorate acknowledges the recent announcements of SADC (Southern African Development Community) forces engaging rebels in Eastern DRC.

The movement expressed gratitude to Regional Leaders and International Partners for their peace efforts while highlighting the Kinshasa regime’s ceasefire violation.*
