Tutsi community in DR. Congo at Risk, being targeted by anti-Rwanda hostility

FEATURED, NEWS, Politics, Rwanda
Gathered in the hollow of a remote valley in eastern DR Congo, women on one side and men on the other, around 500 people attended the funeral of Bonaventure Kinyegeria, a Congolese cattle raiser murdered by militiamen. The armed attackers killed Kinyegeria near the small territory of Minembwe in the highlands of South Kivu province on October 6, making off with his cows. The daylight raid may have been over cattle, but it was also tied in with a local conflict spurred by a reawakening of deep-seated distrust of Rwanda by many in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Kinyegeria, 56, was one of the DRC's Banyamulenge community, which has distant origins among Rwanda's minority Tutsi people. But when it comes to their nationality, the Banyamulenge are categorical: "Congolese, and...

Uganda has limitless potential for exporting an array of locally produced products and services — from horticulture to construction and engineering. Uganda is home to some top-quality products that can compete in any market around the world. This is fact!
