DR Congo: Generals involves in minerals stealing

The DRC, despite being one of the world’s wealthiest nations, ranks low in the world’s poorest countries due to a leadership vacuum.

A series of regimes has failed to effectively utilize its natural resources to transform the lives of its citizens.

The number of senior military personnel engaging in mining theft in North Kivu Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo, is on the rise.

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is accusing Rwanda of stealing these minerals.

Generals, FARDC army members, and politicians are accused of covering up the FARDC-M23 war and stealing minerals.

These leaders have conquered areas including Rubaya in Masisi Territory, where tonnes of the strategic mineral have been, for years, extracted and exported

Sources reveal that precious stones are illegally stolen and sold, with hundreds of tonnes being taken and sold on international markets through neighboring countries.

The United Nations has reported an unprecedented level of theft of precious stones in Rubaya.

The United Nations utilized images from MONUSCO drones and the European Union’s Copernicus Sentinel 2 satellite. The image depicts numerous traditional miners scattered throughout the former SMB mines.

The video showcases PARECO fighters executing control over the miners. The current head of PARECO is Sendugu Museveni.

The mine was stolen following the imprisonment of MP Edouard Mwangachuchu, who is now sentenced to death for allegedly working with the M23 group.

Mineral exports from troubled countries originate from various provinces and are directly transported to countries where the largest exploiters of these resources are located.

The DRC should recognize its weaknesses and work towards resolving its own issues, rather than blaming Rwanda for its shortcomings.
