    Kenya sends soldiers to DRC for a second time.

    Published on

    On Wednesday, the second deployment of Kenyan soldiers is slated to arrive in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

    They’ve been sent to the country’s eastern border as part of a regional force on a peacekeeping assignment.

    As a result of an increase in assaults by armed groups over the last several months, regional security has become a major issue.

    It has been announced that more than 900 Kenyan soldiers would be stationed in the area around the town of Goma.

    Military personnel from Burundi have been present in South Kivu province since August.

    The M23 rebels have taken over additional land in recent months, displacing thousands of residents in the North Kivu region, where the Kenyan forces would be stationed.

    Later this month, the Kenyan city of Nairobi will host a resumption of negotiations between the Congolese government and several armed forces.
