Despite recent accusations that the Rwandan Army committed a possible genocide in the Congo in the 1990s, meetings between Rwandan President Paul Kagame and Congolese President Joseph Kabila are fueling rumors of a new troop deployment there.
There have been some persistent rumors in the region about a possible new deployment of Rwandan Army soldiers into the Congo. Of course, these kinds of rumors are a dime a dozen around Goma nad Bukavu. These, however, come from sources within the officer corps of the armed militia party National Congress for the Defence of the People (CNDP), as well as from inside the Rwandan government, so perhaps we should give them more credence.
Our ears, therefore, perked up when we found out that Congolese President Joseph Kabila met with Rwandan President Paul Kagame several times (one source says up to four times) during the three days that Mr. Kabila spent in Kigali to attend Mr. Kagame's inauguration. What were they talking about?
