Tshisekedi threatens to bomb Kigali to get votes

The President of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Felix Tshisekedi, said once again that his military still has the ability to shoot in Kigali City while they are sitting in Goma.

Since the electoral campaign a for his second presidential term began Tshisekedi, has repeatedly criticized Rwanda and especially President Paul Kagame. Tshisekedi accuses Rwanda of supporting the M23 rebels, who have conquered swathes in Eastern DR Congo’s province, North Kivu.

Rwanda has for many times denied those accusations and condemned being scapegoated for Congolese problems.

In his campaign activities, Felix Tshisekedi continues to make provocative statements about Rwanda to the extent that he even compared President Paul Kagame to Adolf Hitler.

On Monday, December 18, when Tshisekedi who calls himself “Fatshi Beton” was in Kinshasa at the Ndjili Sainte Thérèse ground to finish his campaign, he spoke words against Rwanda again and said that he will urge Congolese Parliament to raid attack on Rwanda when the first bullet falls in Congo.

“When the bullet falls in Congo or the first area they conquer, I will ask the Parliament to allow me to attack Rwanda,” President Felix Tshisekedi said.

“Don’t be afraid, today our army can shoot in Kigali City even if they are in Goma. If Rwanda attacks us, President Kagame will not sleep in his house, he will go to sleep in the forest. He plays with other people and not with Fatshi Beton,” Felix Tshisekedi added.

In Congo, while preparing for the presidential and parliamentary elections, which will be held on Wednesday, December 20, 2023, the conflict continues in Eastern Congo, where the government forces, FARDC, and their supporters, including the Wazalendo group, continue to fight the M23.

Reports say that the Congolese government has failed to distribute electoral kits in different places captured by the M23 rebels.
