Who says that the armed forces of the DRC are alone in front of the armed groups foaming the east of the country? In any case, not the Struggle for Change (LUCHA).
For two days, the elements of the movement « citizen » ply markets and houses in the city of Beni, capital of the province of Ituri in the east, to collect food to feed the soldiers who are on the ground to fight armed groups including ADF.
And yesterday they were on their second day collecting this war effort. « Second day of food and non-food collection to support our FARDC and their families. We are marked by the confidence of the population in our movement and by the hopes placed in the ongoing military operations, « reads the Twitter account of LUCHA.
As promised by President Tshisekedi, Ituri is the scene of « large-scale » military operations in order to put an end to a grueling, insecure atmosphere that has lasted nearly twenty years.
In addition to numerous deaths, the violence in Ituri, as in all of eastern DRC, is at the root of major population movements. And pose serious humanitarian problems.
