Rwandan President Paul Kagame says the political situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) affects all of its neighbours directly or indirectly hence, neighbours can have a say in what happens there.
He said with as many as nine neighbours bordering the country, its problems were as good as a regional problem. He added that the government should also be clear about what help they need from neighbours as and when.
“Maybe if the leaders of Congo are listening, they should be figuring out what they need to do and also (maybe) let people know where they can help ro resolve that problem.

“Because Congo’s problems are not just Congo’s problems, they affect us as well, as neighbours. Congo has nine neighbours, each one of us is affected by what happens in Congo, there is no question about that,” he stressed.
Kagame was speaking during the Mo Ibrahim governance summit’s dialogue series that took place in the Rwandan capital, Kigali.
The situation in the DRC is essentially a political crisis of Kabila having overstayed his tenure by two years. He was expected to step down in December 2016 but polls were postponed citing lack of a credible register and insecurity.
Other parts of the country continue to experience violent clashes between rebels and government forces. A humanitarian situation has arisen with Congolese fleeing into Zambia and Angola. Elections are slated for December 2018.
Top government officials including Prime Minister Bruno Tshibala and Information Minister Lambert Mende have said Kabila will not ammend the consitution to run. Meanwhile, anti-government protests are routinely dispersed by police.

Abiy Ahmed wins the 2019 Nobel Peace Award
Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.
Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.
“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”
It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”
The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
