M23 is a group of congolese military officers who muteneerd from congolese army because of they were very badly mistreated, and abuse power and rights of congolese people. This group is fighting for dignity of congolese people and wants congolese government to be held accountable for oppressing and kiiling innocent civilians in eastren congo region. The M23 is largely supported by all congolese people, that's why it is advancing because the group has best ideas and stand for congolese interrests. The M23, is composed also by best congolese intellectuals and local people who want to bring back dignity to their country. M23 want peaceful solution, however congolese troups supported by western interrest groups are waging wars on congolese people, killing innocent women and children. For this reason M23 supported by local civilians have decided to protect congolese people by engaging in peaceful means to resolve this crise. m23 leaders are also supported by most if not all african countries, to bring about lasting peace and prosperity to their country. M23 wants also to bring to justice those who kill innocent civilians and restore peace and prosperity for all people.

kayinamura. What u r saying it's complete bulshit specially the part u said: "he M23 is largely supported by all congolese people, that's why it is advancing because the group has best ideas and stand for congolese interrests. The M23, is composed also by best congolese intellectuals and local people who want to bring back dignity to their country. M23 want peaceful solution, however congolese troups supported by western interrest groups are waging wars on congolese people, killing innocent women and children. For this reason M23 supported by local civilians have decided to protect congolese people by engaging in peaceful means to resolve this crise. m23 leaders are also supported by most if not all african countries".

I'm a congolese and i'm 100 percent sure u r not one coz u dont know what Congolese people want and we surely dont want anymore rebels backed by the rwandan governement or any war at all, we r fade up of wars and we are not warriors people unlike our neighboors, forgodsake stealing our ressources to enrich our neighboors and 6.000.000 CONGOLESE DEATH ARE NOT ENOUGH OF A PRICE WE PAID SO WE HAVE TO SEEK ANOTHER WAR??? nonsense !!

Mr shawnblack-t! It is ok to disagree. That's a pwer of democraty. What I have said, is well supported by bests if not all congolese leaders, interrectuals, local people and best internatonal organization. The world, including UN has come to conclude that M23 is the best solution forlatin peace and prosperity in eastern part of Congo. Pople is congolese opoition are backing M23, because it is the only hope for congo. The suffering of congolese people caused by weak,irresponsible and unaccountable congolese pseudo govenment will soon resolved; and national integrty will be restored at te cenr of its people. M23 has full support from congolese peopleand all african nations,and offcourse "ALLAH"

hey bibiche mutekulwa,.. with due repsect to your views,..Sorry for the loss of your family. However, women are rapped right, and people's bellongings are stollen now outside of goma by FARDC. that's carracter of FARDC. M23 is way better, smart, disciplined army that eastern congo needs. these reposrts did come from MONUSCO today about what FARDC is doing right now. Congolese (zairois) are well know for being disfunctional, talkative and less productive. You guyz are well known for this since Mobutu, and now,... look at your own government, be honest yourself before you open up your dirt mouth. I fully give you guyz a credit for knowing better how to dance ndombolo, and eat nyoka na ugali. Other than that, i don't what else you can achieve. you will be under rwanda and Uganda until forever... What and see. FARDC is only a name, but they can't achieve anything. your own government is very weak, and subsantially ineffective to protect congolese people, and enhance its relation wwith neighbors. M23 and other armed groupd in the region are results of of poor and disfunctional congolese government. Someone has to come and do your job, and put congo is order, or divide it. m23 is the only solution now. MONUSCO is aware of that. Soon, kivu will be indipendant, and you guyz can keep kabila in the western part of DRC, and you can do whatever you want. M23 is not going to burder you, since you will be coming to the east to look for work, since it will will be blessed by Allah, and people of kivu will rejoice with their neighbors. bye bye DRC and welcome the Kivu republic. the truth hurts, right? let's face it. Sorry, there is no other choice.

What really wrong with zairois?????,zairois. congolais??? can't you guyz stand up for your own country??,I think belgium should return back and colonized you, if you don't wanna become subjects Kigali & Kampala. Kigali and Campala is ready to welcome Kivu republic in a club of east africa club of nation. The kivu republic will become english speaking. You like it or hate it,congo doesn't have a choice. kabila is very weak,a nd his government is very disfunctional. Kivu will seek referandum, and a new nation if born here, like south soudan!

kayinamura, just keep talkin' man n keep dreaming about your m23 n the taking of kivu, where r they now? it's not Congolese who committed genocide n killed their own brothers like u guys did, that was so shocking n u come here n try to teach us how to live?? u r the ones who need Belgians back to teach u not to kill your own brothers n u try to bring that virus to our soil? rape comes from your country, Congolese don't know what rape means coz its not in our culture n plus u never hear that sort of thing from any part of Congo but just from the eastern part in villages between Congo n Rwanda borders n i bet it's Rwandans soldiers with fardc uniforms raping our women!
