Kampala-Signing of the peace agreement between the Government of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the M23 rebels has aborted.
The government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the M23 Movement were yesterday meant to sign a peace deal in the Ugandan capital Kampala to end violent armed conflict.
The signing of the peace deal which was to take place at State House Entebbe did not take place as scheduled.
A press release issued by the Ugandan Government blames the failure of the signing of the peace pact on the DRC Government delegation.
“While both delegations-DRC government led by its Foreign Affairs Minister on the one hand, and M23 led by Mr. Bertrand Bisimwa came and were present in State House, the DRC government delegation never (refrained) entered the conference room where the signing ceremony was to be conducted” reads the statement issued by Uganda Government Spokesperson Ofwono Opondo.
According to the statement, after a long wait, the convener, President Yoweri Museveni was forced to leave the venue when the DRC team failed to show up.
The DRC government delegation reportedly said they wanted to further study in detail to ensure it conforms to what they negotiated.
The Government of the Democratic Republic of Congo has for several months been engaged in peace negotiations with the M23 rebels.
The negotiations were however abandoned when the Kinshasha Government with the help of Tanzanian and South African troops attacked and overran all M23 positions.
The attack forced the M23 rebels to cross into neighboring Uganda and Surrender.
