Transcription

Not inside the country. Right now, apparently—last year, for instance, there was one part of the country, the northern part of the country, where there was an infiltration from the former government troops and militias, which are fighting the government troops and also killing civilians. But right now, from the news that I read and also from people I talk to, who have visited the country recently, apparently the war inside the country is over. Except, as you know, it has strayed to another country, the Congo, right now. So apparently there is a war in the Congo; and also, as you know, the Rwandan government is helping one group which is fighting Kabila, because apparently Kabila’s regime has given asylum to the former militias and government troops, and from there they are able to invade the country. So yeah, inside the country there’s no war, but there are attempts from outside—from Congo, especially—from the former troops and militias to invade inside the country right now. The national army has full control.
