      Default Congo-Kinshasa: South African, Tanzanian Forces (JWTZ) Open Fire on Rebels M23

      The United Nations Intervention Brigade in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a new-style U.N. peacekeeping force with a uniquely robust mandate, has finally started fighting, the DRC government said Friday. The force of more than 3,000 troops, mainly from Tanzania and South Africa, has been in eastern Congo for nearly three months and on Thursday opened fire on the M23 rebels.
      This was the moment many people in eastern Congo had been waiting for,
      DRC government spokesman Lambert Mende said at a press conference. "I think we can simply welcome the fact that the brigade has gone into action, since yesterday. It's a good thing, better late than never."
      There were about 16,000 U.N. peacekeepers in Congo before the brigade deployed, but they had taken little part in the government's attempt to neutralize the M23 rebels. Doubts had been rising whether the new-style brigade would be any different.
      In a second day of fighting Thursday between the army and the M23, some 17 kilometers north of Goma, however, the brigade's artillery unit from Tanzania fired its field artillery at the rebels' positions, according to international observers and sources within the Congolese army.
      It is unclear who started the latest clashes. An army officer told VOA that government troops had advanced four kilometers since Wednesday, but other sources believe they have moved forward less than two kilometers.
      Either way, the city of Goma is still within range of M23 rockets. The M23 captured the strategic objective in November, but then evacuated under international pressure.
      Mende said 11 rockets fell on Goma and its outskirts Thursday, killing at least one person and wounding 12. He said experts reported that the missiles were fired from Rwanda. Rwanda has consistently denied supporting M23 and has said that missiles were fired from Congo into Rwandan territory in the past two days.
      Experts, including a Congolese army officer, said the rockets that hit Goma more likely had been fired from the M23's positions.
      Mende was asked by a journalist whether DRC should cut off diplomatic relations with Rwanda over the allegations that it has been supporting M23, and that rockets have been fired from its territory at Congo, and his answer was effectively, no.
      He said Congo's president, Joseph Kabila, answered that question when he said he would follow the advice of regional leaders by not declaring war on Rwanda or cutting ties with that country.
      Mende noted that the president had withdrawn his ambassador from Kigali, though, leaving only lower ranking diplomats at the DRC embassy there.
      Congolese army sources say that only the Tanzanian troops in the Intervention Brigade have fired at the M23 so far, and they did so from some ways behind the government forces' front lines.
      A U.N. source said the South African government is not reluctant to combat the M23 rebels, but its forces were not needed in the latest engagement, which required only the use of the Tanzanian field artillery unit.
      The intervention brigade commander used to be Tanzania's highest ranking artillery commander.

      Bado mapema lakini inshallah jwtz itaingia kigali kama nduli kagame anaendeleza jeuri na kiburi. Anajidanganya kufuata mikakati ya mazayuni wa kiyahudi kupora haki ya wazawa wa kongo kwa kuanzisha ubeberu wa kimbari ili kuanzisha taifa la watutsi peke yao. Mbinu ya kuwafurusha (displacement) wabantu toka maeneo yao na kuingiza walowezi wa kitutsi toka nchi za maziwa makuu kukalia majimbo ya kivu ni kama ile iliyotumiwa na mayahudi kuwazulumu wapalestina nchi yao.

      Kazi wanayofanya askari wa Tanzania ndani ya Kongo ni takatifu. Wakongo wapatao milioni 2 tangu waingiliwe na Kagame wamepoteza maisha, wataendelea kufa mpaka lini? Kwa hili nawapongeza askari wetu, nawapa moyo, naombea maisha yao, nampongeza Rais Kikwete kwa kuchukua uamuzi mgumu ambao ni wa lazima. Watanzania tushikamane na wapiganaji wetu. Mungu uwape ujasiri wapigaji wetu, uwalinde, uwape mafanikio maana wamekwenda kupigania uhai wa viumbe wako wanyonge, walioshindwa kulindwa na mataifa makubwa dhidi ya wauaji wa nchi ndogo ya Rwanda. Amina.

      Maswala,
      Peaceful DRC is a huge boost to TZ and Africa in general. Moreover, business potential, energy & mineral resources, arable land etc., not forgetting human potential, are enormous if and only if peace prevails. Only true neighbor can help this country and TZ should do the needful.

      But, TPDF also needs to prepare for a much bigger war with Kagame/Rwanda. Kagame will definitely wage war sooner or later against our country/forces, either to deflect his eventual ICC indictment/arrest or his perpetual fear of reprisal from all the people he killed in Rwanda and DRC.
