As internal infighting takes center stage within the notorious rebel out-fit of M23, the infighting has already claimed 32 rebels and 65 innocent civilians lives. Among the rebel officers that died from their own sword include: 1 major, 3 captains and 8 lieutenants. Meanwhile, 5 captains and 3 majors have been clandestinely moved to Uganda for treatment after sustaining life-threatening injuries.
This infighting has not surprised some of us that understand the characteristic of M23 rebels and the social fabric of Congo.
The criminal out-fit is composed of opportunistic characters that are more royal to Uganda and Rwanda, while another faction that is composed of mainly illiterates like Sultani Makenga, are victims of their own illiteracy. Thus, they’ve become slaves to Bosco Ntaganda and are ideologically bankrupt to differentiate between a just cause from a banditry enterprise.
Having lost face, now the handlers of the M23 criminal out-fit are trying to save face by toppling one of their own. However, Criminal Bosco Ntaganda the terminator is still the de-factor leader of the criminal out-fit-while Paul kagame and Yoweri Museveni are their undisputed godfathers.
What is the future of Bishop Jean-Marie RUNIGA Lugereo?
I doubt if he will ever go back to church to work as a Bishop-a Bishop that fails to help thousands of displaced sheep and rushes to Goma to kill and loot banks is a disgrace to society.
However, this does not surprise as the name Runiga in all KIHUTU sub languages namely: Kinyabwisha, Kisanza,Kifumbira, Kinyarwanda, Kirundi, and Kinyamulenge; Runiga means the strangler and Kuniga is to kill by squeezing the throat so as to choke or suffocate.
The disgraced Bishop has amassed a fortune for himself, and his very likely to hide in Uganda were he has invested a fortune in real estate business. Will he be welcomed by Ugandans? Of-course yes, they worship thieves and adore them.
We will also witness more infighting among M23 criminal cartel- we might end up seeing Congolese Tutsi that are mainly composed of Dictator Paul Kagame’s Protection Brigade joining-in on the side of their Congolese brothers, because Criminal Paul Kagame has already put Sultani Makenga and 32 other people within M23, on a death list. Thus, this is just the ice-bug of the nasty stuff to come.
