Kagame Puts on Dancing Shoes as Another Congo Based Rebel Leader Dies in Cold Blood

Kigali on Wednesday welcomed the killing of a Rwandan Hutu rebel leader in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and said it proved neighbouring President Felix Tshisekedi’s commitment to fighting “negative forces”.

Sylvestre Mudacumura, commander of the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR), who was wanted by the International Criminal Court on war crime charges, was shot dead Tuesday night.

“The death of Sylvestre Mudacumura is good news for peace and security in the region,” state minister for regional affairs Olivier Nduhungirehe told AFP.

“With his genocide group, the FDLR, he was destabilising DRC, killing Congolese and Rwandans.”

The FDLR was created by Rwandan Hutu refugees in eastern DRC after the genocide against the Tutsis by majority Hutus in neighbouring Rwanda in 1994.

The group is regularly accused of committing atrocities against civilians in the zones it controls
