Yesterday, 29th March 22, FARDC battalions and DR Congo National police melted away as advancing troops of RDF – M23 approached Bunagana. At the request of President Felix Tshisekedi, only 3 UPDF platoons crossed inside DR Congo and crashed this advancing force of RDF – M23 troops who had operationally covered 55 Km ground from Tshanzu to the outskirts of Bunagana.
3 UPDF platoons joined the battle and engaged this Advancing RDF – M23 column, and a fierce fight took four hours. The UPDF was able to crash RDF – M23, and RDF – M23 rebels withdrew on directions of Ndiza, Tshanzu and Runyoni axis. After 4 hours of intense battlefield fighting, 9 RDF – M23 rebels were dead and 13 captured.
Great work by UPDF that legally intervened to protect territorial integrity of a brotherly sovereign country at the request of President Felix Tshisekedi. What DR Congo and Congolese want is peace for their Country, DR Congo.
The mighty UPDF stopped and militarily crashed an advancing RDF – M23 column that was already on outskirts of Bunagana border town in DR Congo as FARDC soldiers melted away.
The quick intervention of UPDF at the request of president Felix Tshisekedi saved the town of Bunagana, DR Congo side from falling at the hands of Criminal Paul Kagame’s RDF – M23 rebel movement.
N.B: Meanwhile, Congolese are on WhatsApp and other social media platforms yapping than mobilising to go to the frontline to fight against a ruthless brutal invader, an invader who has been killing and plundering their country for decades. I thought they had learned from the bravery of Ukrainians, but I was wrong. They are Good at killing their fellow Congolese – innocent Banyamulenge, teaching hatred against Tutsis – Rwandaphone speakers and yapping on social media than facing the real enemy, Dictator Paul Kagame and his killer thugs.
