The new appointment was announced through a statement released by M23 rebel group on 31st July 2022.
“We have named Lawrence Kanyuka as M23 political spokesperson while Maj Willy Ngoma will continue to serve as the military spokesperson,” reads a statement signed by Bertrand Bisimwa, the President of M23.
It has been quite some time since the fighting between Congolese Army (FARDC) and M23 erupted. The rebel group accuses DRC of failure of implement peace accords.
Since the fighting erupted, M23 has captured different parts of eastern DRC including Bunagana town.
Recently, M23 appointed new leaders of Bunagana and issued rules for citizens living in the town.
