President Joseph Kabila of DRC has just said in a press conference in Kinshasha that he will vow to fight and edgeout the Rebels from Goma.

Congolese troops are said to have removed their Uniform and disappeared out of Goma saying they had lost the war.

Riots have began in the congolese city of Kisangani where students accuse the Government forces of failing to stop M23 rebels from taking Goma city.

Kabila reportedly jetted into Uganda where he is expected to hold an urgent consultative meeting with Uganda President Yoweri Museveni.

The congolese President is said to have telephoned his Ugandan counterpart requesting for an urgent crisis meeting to which Museveni gave a green light.

Kabilas travel to Kampala comes minutes after Goma city fell to M23 Rebels who are said to posess superior fire power and tactical advantage over the Congolese army supported by Peacekeepers.

Uganda as chair of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) has been mediating between M23rebels and DRC authorities to end the fighting.

However, a leaked report by a U.N. panel of experts accused Uganda of aiding the rebels which prompted Uganda to suspend its mediation role even if the United Nations did not endorse the accusations but still imposed sanctions on M23 leaders.

Uganda argued that it cannot try to bring two parties to the table to talk when one is under sanctions and the other is not.
