S.Africa asked to halt sale of arms to Kagame’s GovernmentBy Gasasira, Sweden
Umuvugizi has reliably learnt from highly placed security sources that countries through “National Convention arms Control committee”, the committee charged with monitoring the sale of arms in South Africa, have asked the Government to immediately halt selling arms to Kagame’s government, because it uses them in its military support to DR Congo M23 rebels.
These countries also show that Kagame’s Government has breached international agreement contained in the “UN Resolution 1807”, stopping any person or governments from selling arms to rebel groups in Congo, but Kagame’s government not only contravened with this resolution, it also went ahead to even create these groups.
Countries have now called on the S.African government to immediately stop selling arms to Kagame’s government because its uses the same arms to support the terrorist groups destabilizing the Congo.
More information reaching Umuvugizi indicate that the S.African Government has sold to Rwanda different types of arms worth over 100 million Rands. Also between 2003 and 2012 S.Africa sold to Rwanda consignment of arms worth 104.3 million Rands.
Investigation carried out by Umuvugizi indicate that some of these arms purchased from S.Africa are the ones being used by M23 rebels in its adventurous war against the DR Congo Government, which has claimed deaths of millions of Congolese and displaced thousands of people as refugees in countries neighboring Congo.
