Rwanda is accused of blackmailing DR Congo over refugees.

The Democratic Republic of Congo has denounced Rwanda for declaring that it will no longer accept refugees from the war in the country’s eastern region.

The comments made by the president of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, showed, according to a representative of the Congolese government, that he placed no priority on human rights.

He claimed that Kigali was using refugees for political gain to extort money from the
world community.

Patrick Muyaya claimed that despite President Kagame’s efforts to retract his
comments, he had “exposed his genuine objectives.”

Numerous conflicts, especially for mineral resources, have left their marks in the
eastern Congo.
