South Africa taking part in special summit on DRC conflict, amid rising tensions, finger-pointing at Rwanda

The AU Executive Council is composed of foreign ministers, other cabinet ministers or authorities as designated by the governments of member states.

The ministers’ meeting has been preparing the agenda of work for the upcoming Assembly of Heads of State and Government session scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, where African leaders will deliberate on the milestones and progress made on trade, regional integration, and multilateral cooperation.

Central to the Heads of State’s meeting will be the ongoing armed conflict in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) which continues to displace thousands of Congolese citizens and destabilising the vast nation of more than 100 million people.

Officially, DRC President Felix Tshisekedi, the United Nations (UN) and Western countries have pointed fingers at neighbouring Rwanda for supporting the heavily armed rebels M23 causing havoc in DRC. On the other hand, Rwanda, led by President Paul Kagame, has repeatedly denied the accusations.
