Abdoulaye Yerodia Ndombas, the former vice president of DRC is calling the non-Tutsi Congolese Community to kill the Congolese Tutsis. He calls these last ones ”Vermines” to be exterminated. And a big number of the non-Tutsi Conglese People together with the Congolese army and The Interahamwe, the perpetrators of the Rwandan Genocide responded to his appeal and killed many Congolese Tutsi in Kalemie, Moba,Kamina , Lubumbashi, Kinshasa, Vyura etc… the climax being the Gatumba Genocide and the ongoing war in Kivu where the Congolese government soldiers together with the Interahamwe are raping women, killing innocent civilians due their ethnicity and stealing people’s belongings.
These attrocities are mostly happening in the areas of: MINEMBWE, GAHORORO, MASISI… We strongly condemn these atrocities and call the International Community to put pressure on the Congolese government to stop using its undisciplined army and interahamwe to kill innocent civilians and to accept to negotiate with other parties with which it is in conflict as the only way to spare the lives of the innocent civilians.
We also inform the International Community that killings against innocent civilians in Minembwe, Gahoro, Kamombo… are out of the knowledge of the outside world. Humanitarian assistance is needed urgently.
