Newscast Media KAMPALA, Uganda—Newscast Media promised to update our readers about developments in the embattled Democratic Republic of Congo. Some more exciting news from the region is that the UN has approved a 4,000-strong military force to maintain stability, and if necessary, these combatants will militarily engage any outside elements attempting to destabilize the area.
The 4,000 soldiers are an amalgamation of African Union troops who will maintain a neutral stance and ensure life goes back to normal within the entire eastern region, as reported by Uganda’s state-owned New Vision paper.
The UN had 17,000 troops in the Congo that did absolutely nothing to stop the rebels from overrunning towns and villages, and simply watched Africans lose their lives to the savagery of the M23 rebels.
The approval of 4,000 combatants who will prevent atrocities from occurring comes as splendid news, in time for Christmas, for all Congolese and neighboring countries. For their part, the rebels are already pulling out of Goma and Sake, the cities they had previously held captive. This is a very good and honorable gesture by all who have brought about the peaceful withdrawal from Congo.
Hopefully this brings an end to the Congo nightmare, and a fresh beginning for the Congolese people to pursue their dreams and to also live in peace.
Finally M23 rebels have agreed to withdraw from the DR Congo
