Congo bishops plead for peace, national unity

September 24, 2012

Calling for peace in a strife-torn nation that has suffered the bloodiest conflict since World War II, a delegation from the Congolese Episcopal Conference met with the leadership of the rebel March 23 Movement (M23) in North Kivu province.

“The war of the M23 is unjust and unjustified,” said Bishop Valentin Masengo Mkinda of Kabinda, the head of the delegation. “Congo remains indivisible, and its resources should not be exploited illegally by armed groups from just anywhere.”
