A Comparison between Congo's situation and Rwanda's can certainly be something useful both to understand what is happening with both countries as well as give arguments in the actual MUN debates

6 Hope for Peace on November 11th 2009, 09:18

The transitional government entered to Congo in 2004 and after some years after the population and the countries hope started to come back because they all believed that the threat for the Civil War in Congo came back. The institutions about this civil war showed to be falling when the fall of Bukavu happened. Many people in Congo also believe in the weakness and the inability of the UN peacekeeping troops to prevent the civil war and to provide peace. The citizens are aware that this huge issue is not being considered the way it should and that something needs to be done as soon as possible. The dissents general withdraw the troop’s forces from Bukavu and because of this the crisis continues with many deaths and attacks.

Hi delegate!
I would like to add some facts about Congo Civil War which I got from my research


- the war had a death estimated at more than 5 million

- Between August 1998 and April 2004, about 3.8 million people have died

- UN has been controlling some town in the region and currently there has been 5,500 peacekeepers in North Kivu

- people continue to die each day from disease and malnutrition but ongoing violence as well

Gen Nkunda according to the government committed war crimes that lead to several deaths and attacks making the wall an even more serious problem and the government urges the prosecution of him, especially because he was involved in the happening of 10,000 troops fighting each other because of the conflict between the loyalists and the dissident troops. The government is with a big problem since the majority of the populations is aware of this confusion and urges an act of the government to decrease the war as fast as possible.
