C'est là un genre inconnu ou absolument méconnu par les acteurs de l'establishment politique de l'actuelle RDC. La preuve c'est l'information de la radio onusienne que j'ai postée ici hier. Pendant que la règle d'or des pourparlers en cours à Nairobi semble être celle de sèvrer quelque peu les media, pour la simple raison que la diffusion des pourparlers non encore achevés est toujours prématurée, et part conséquent improductive, Radio Okapi a démontré hier, que quelque acteur gouvernemental, ou tout au moins onusien, tenait à faire transparaitre quelques nouvelles portrayant la délégation du CNDP sous une lumière encore une fois négative. Quand est-ce que les tenants du pouvoir et la fraternité du quatrième pouvoir à eux affiliée apprendront-ils le sens de l'expression fair play?
Et voilà un aspect du fameux rapport de l'ONU qui a tant fait jaser Kinshasa. Un aspect qu'il serait opportun d'enquêter à fond, car il s'agit de l'axe terroriste qui se forme tranquillement entre le SOUDAN, la RDC et le ZIMBABWE. Cela ne m'étonnerait pas que l'ANGOLA soit impliquée!
- Zimbabwe May Have Received Chinese Arms via Congo , UN Says
19 December 2008 (Bloomberg) — The United Nations has “credible information” that Chinese weapons were sent to Zimbabwe via the Democratic Republic of Congo, according to a report by the organization.
An attempt by China to transport arms to Zimbabwe in April was blocked by a South African labor union that instructed its members to refuse to unload a shipment that arrived in Durban , South Africa . Attempts to dock at ports in neighboring countries were unsuccessful. China was criticized over the shipment by the Zimbabwean opposition and the U.S.
Zimbabwe is experiencing a political crisis after the opposition Movement for Democratic Change won the most seats in a parliamentary election in March and then boycotted a June run- off for the post of president because of alleged attacks on its supporters by ruling party backers, the police and military. A power-sharing agreement signed in September is yet to be implemented after talks broke down.
Between Aug. 20 and 22 this year a Boeing aircraft transported 53 metric tons of ammunition destined for the Zimbabwean army from Congo to Zimbabwe, said Marty Natalegawa, chairman of the UN Security Council committee probing conflict in eastern Congo, according to the report.
While the transportation doesn’t violate an arms embargo on eastern Congo it does show that Congo may be being used as a transshipment point for weapons destined for other countries, according to the report. The UN has written to the government of China and is awaiting a response, it stated.
An employee who answered the phone in the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs press office said he was unaware of the report and declined to immediately comment. Calls to the Congolese government didn’t’ connect.
The United Nations also found ammunition of Zimbabwean origin in the DRC’s Rumangabo district. Congolese authorities captured a Bulgarian-made RPG-7 rocket grenade launcher and 7.62 millimeter ammunition made by state-owned Zimbabwe Defense Industries Ltd. under its trade name “Cheetah..’’
“The Zimbabwean authorities responded that the ammunition was made for hunting purposes and that Zimbabwe has not supplied arms to the Democratic Republic of Congo since its troops withdrew in 2002 and has not provided any military material to Uganda, Rwanda or Burundi, although those countries did capture some Zimbabwean equipment during the 1998-2003 war,’’ according to the report.
7.62 millimeter ammunition is used in AK-47 assault rifles, the most commonly used weapon in African rebellions. Zimbabwe deployed troops to Congo during a civil war in the country to support the government of Joseph Kabila from rebels from the east, who were backed by Rwanda and Uganda .
Calls to Zimbabwe ’s army commander Philip Sibanda at Harare ’s King George VI barracks weren’t answered today. Calls to Zimbabwe Defense Industries, which owns two factories in Harare , were also not answered.
Under U.S. and European Union trade embargoes, it is illegal to do business with ZDI.
The shipments were reported earlier by the Johannesburg- based Mail & Guardian newspaper..
