The allegations are additional to others raised by DRC over the past months accusing Rwanda of supporting M23 rebel group, stealing minerals and chimpanzees among others.
During a recent security meeting in Northern Kivu Province led by the Military Governor Lt Gen Constant Ndima, participants raised concerns that Rwanda is manipulating Tutsis in Congo to flee their country.
The meeting held on 2nd January 2023, was also wrapped up with different resolutions.
As he read the resolutions, the region’s military spokesperson, L.Col Guillaume Ndjike Kaiko said: “The committee learned about mass fleeing of citizens to Rwanda, majority of whom being from Congolese Tutsi communities. It was observed that the latter is a result of Rwanda’s manipulation to have them accommodated in camps under the cover of violence by other ethnicities, to justify the presence of Rwandan troops on Congolese territory.”
Rwanda has repeatedly refuted the DR Congo’s allegations as false saying that the country does it to distract the world from its failure to restore peace.
Tutsi communities in DRC have been subjected to violence and killings on accusations of being allies of M23.
The violence was denounced by the United Nations which also warned of Genocide.
Rwanda accommodates over 70,000 Congolese refugees including those who arrived more than 26 years ago.
