RANDOM NEWS

Kabila to become powerless soon, says the Daily Nation in Nairobi. Sorry, the article is yesterday's. I did not have time to go through the press. But it is interesting, though among the comments, you'll find someone who says the article is trash. Those who know what is happening can tell on which side he is.

Nkunda guilty of several crimes, see details here, but sorry they are in French:

Egypt to provide the peacekeepers Ban Ki Moon has been asking for to increase Monuc presence in Eastern DRC. Now will they be deployed along the LRA controlled areas or FDLR's. Impossible to tell now. Most probably in the Oriental Province since the Rwandan troupes are still in North-Kivu.

Rien de surprennant ces gens se reunissent sans l'envoye special de l'ONU. A savoir que le cndp/kifuafua de Ntaganda-Kamanzi court deriere la montre... Paix trop fragile pour la RDC avec l'integration forcee des elements de l'ANC/CNDP.

Au premier anonyme, merci de la confiance, je doute que je la mérite car ce que je fais est infime comparé aux enjeux... On parlera de Goma tout à l'heure, quand j'en aurais fini avec le travail urgent que j'ai. Pour l'instant, je ne suis pas surprise de la vitesse, toujours courcuitante, avec laquelle Kinshasa amorce tout sous la houlette des officiers rwandais et l'anxiété féroce qui doit faire monter l'adrénaline du général Ntaganda. Le temps presse, les aquis de la démarche en cours plutôt trop maigres, beaucoup plus que prévu, si prévision il y a eu. They want to beef up something... Ce qu'on appelle "pourparlers de goma" ne remplacent en rien les pourparlers de Nairobi. Les deux instances sont aux antipodes. On en parlera avant la fin de cette journée, sorry for being so busy.

Dear All , below a intersting article from the independant ( Uganda ).
I really appreciate this paragraph from the author of this article : "We talked politics, war and family life. Nkunda was courteous and engaging. He seemed serious about reaching out to western interests. I am not ashamed to say that I enjoyed our informal conversations after the interview. Why? Because I found a human who seemed genuinely concerned for the people of Congo."
