    These stories are old and misleading.

    Rwanda before going into DRCongo asked UN and international community to do something to stop attacks from Congo by rebel forces and nothing was done until no any other choice.

    About minerals sourced from DRCongo, Rwanda offers certification of its minerals.

    And for Clarification as the two nations are so next to each other, it’s fact that all minerals found in Eastern DRCongo also exist in Rwanda, at the end of the day, minerals do not go by borders.

    It makes us laugh when those big countries and companies say those fake theories of not buying Conflict minerals.

    It was published when a UN vehicle had an accident and only to find out that it was full of sacks of minerals.

    UN’s peacekeeping mission in DRCongo is one of the longest and most budgeted mission in UN’s history but when you go to check their effectiveness is nearly O, they haven’t brought any amount of peace in that place.

    Recently, Angola DRCongo, Rwanda and other neighboring countries have decided to take the issue by them selves and launch joined efforts to end Congo’s conflicts and start Trade with constructing interlinked railways roads etc.
