DRC: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres arrives in Goma


<b>DRC: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres arrives in Goma</b>Antonio Guterres, Secretary General of the UN arrived this Saturday, August 31, in Goma for "a solidarity visit" in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The region is prey to an Ebola epidemic and also hit by attacks by armed groups including the ADF.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has come to support "the DRC's armed forces in the fight against terrorism" which represents "a threat not only to Congo but to all of Africa", he declared upon arrival in Goma. However, supporting "the DRC's armed forces in the fight against terrorism" is a bit naive, given the fact that the Congolese armed forces are part of the problem. The FARDC are under Joseph Kabila's command, who is himself under Paul Kagame's command, who sponsors terrorist groups in Eastern Congo in order to pillage the natural resources of the region.
