Democratic Republic of Congo dynamic conflicts.

Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto has called for an international community to “deal with negative forces” behind the continual conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Mr Ruto, who is representing President Uhuru Kenyatta, is among leaders attending the United Nations Great Lakes Peace Security and Cooperation Summit, the 7th in a series of such conferences but the first ever to take place away from the African Union head quarters in Addis Ababa or the UN General Assembly.

The conference is purposed to ensure advocating for lasting peace to the Great Lakes region that is most affected by terror attacks.

Some of the groups fighting in DRC include the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), remnants of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and the democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR).
