    Fanuel Natnael says:

    a prudent husband is silent.

    Glory says:

    It’s a time for DRC to reborn through these mobisation and unity as a Congolese because they was torn apart since long time ago and the government is doing a good job to recruit new army and remove infiltration in FARDC.if they continue in this way,very soon insecurity in east of DRC it’s gonna be end

    In 1980 Yoweri Museveni disagreed with Obote and Launched Luweero war.Gen David Oyite Ojok(one of best trained soldiers in Uganda history) died in a plane crash on his way to Luweero.This changed the direction of the war.Between 1981-86 Paul Kagame and Fred Rwigema together with other banyarwanda tutsi exiled in Uganda fought alongside Yoweri Museveni in Uganda.

    In 1985 regional/nepostistic disagreements between Uganda Army Commander, General Tito Okello(Luo-Acholi) and President Milton Obote(Luo-Langi) over the promotion of Smith Acak Opon(Luo-Langi) to replace the late Gen Oyite Ojok(Luo-Langi) instead of General Bazillio Okello(Luo-Acholi) caused a coup against Milton Obote.Gen Tito Okello became president(1985-86) and Gen Bazillio Okello became army commander.
    Daniel Moi called peace talks in Nairobi between Yoweri Museveni and Gen Tito Okello.The agreement(witnessed by Ambassador Bethwell Kiplagat of Kenya) required Gen Tito Okello to be president and Yoweri Museveni to be vice president.THE TALKS COLLAPSED when Soldiers allied to Yoweri Museveni and led by Rwandans Paul Kagame and Fred Rwigema continued a push against Gen Tito Okello led Soldiers in Uganda.

    shadow beast says:

    Kagame and museveni should go‼️

    Peter Bisala says:

    This has always been their strategy, to seek dialogue and mixing of forces and then, they will violate the peace agreement and overthrow others to seize power completely. One they did in Uganda, so the same thing in Rwanda, now, they want to to do the same thing in Congo. Congolese hope is in its youth who suffers a lot from multiple aggressions from these two neighboring countries.

    sajjabi HUSSEN says:

    AM UGANDAN I LOVE MY COUNTRY BUT I KNOW WHO MY MZEI’S BEHAVIOUR AND HE DOESN’T HAVE A WEAK SPOT THAT’S THE PROBLEM JUST LEAVE THAT GUY ALONE AND THE OTHER THING IS THAT HE IS A VERY PETIENT PERSON

    GRA says:

    They are simply looking chaotic!! To be honest, they are not looking like they would be serious soldiers to threaten enemy. Congo need to take serious the issue of security. I just sympathize.

    R.G TV. says:

    Poverty gives the poor ZERO options.

    Charles Bii says:

    Rwanda and Uganda are directly involved in Congo instability

    Joseph Chimwanga says:

    Thank you very much Sir 🙏

    Stay Winning says:

    Western Proxy wars to control Strategic Mines for EV cars and Chips …we the people have to endure such because of our weak leaders..the Question should be Who does Kagame work for?
    Who does M7 work for?
    And Who does Tshekendi work for?
    It’s not the people for sure!!!
    Africans will only get stable when they realize the Enemy is outside the continent and He is not Black!!!

    ARIYO ANDREW says:

    Thats the way to go!
    Only Congolese people will liberate themselves from the Rwandan occupational alnarkba

    Mudasiru Barista says:

    Is this training or is future thieves 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 no more peace after this training Congo is going to be worse more than before

    sourav jaiswal says:

    UK will soon send young men to aid Rwanda. They are skilled in making long journeys in land and sea.

    Uncle Fester says:

    What does the UK gain out of a war in the DRC?

    sourav jaiswal says:

    @Uncle Fester It was in response to UK deporting illegal channel crossers to Rwanda.

    Diire Straits says:

    The Congolese government must urgently redouble Its efforts to build a strong, well trained and better equipped army in order to be able to put that little belligerent country in its rightful place. Kagame with his overly inflated ego thinks he’s some sort of a god but hopefully the Congolese will soon deal with him in the only language he understands.

    Seeyou Seemee says:

    They’ll never learn

    vmathieu ngimbi says:

    I think is strong msg to multi national, they will never divide us, playing a game we didn’t know before now we grow up and we know, that’s why have to protect our land from now.

    耶穌基督就是光的人 says:

    Fight for you country guys

    Ibra says:

    The day DRC will be stable, Africa will rejoice.

    耶穌基督就是光的人 says:

    Cong need more support from other African countries.

    Kumwami says:

    This is how Jenocide started in Rwanda when civilian were given guns and other weapons. Remember they were against one part of people similar to how it is in Congo. M23 is fighting mostly fo people who speaks Kinyarwanda including other races security. Time is coming for another bloodshed in Eastern Africa. God help your people 😢😢😢🙏🙏

    Aroji Otieno says:

    Africa must move on from this nonsense.
