Congolese army FARDC has confirmed they have expelled Burundian rebels FNL from their positions, and now they are roaming in Southern Congo’s forests.
The Army’s spokesperson Dieudonné Kasereka told BBC that the army was able to launch an offensive on the Burundian rebels who have been operating in Eastern Congo to destabilize peace in Burundi. The Rebels are in command of Aloys Nzabampema.
“We were able to fight up to 27 enemies and take away their weaponry ammunitions, but they killed 3 of our soldiers and injured 4.” He added.
“We evacuated them from their normal military base, the Aloys Nzabampema’s military headquarters in Mwenga District in Southern Kivu” said Dieudonné Kasereka.

FARDC said that they would not reveal where FNL is now but they affirmed that they did not flee to Burundi as some might have been thinking, because where the fight took place was far from the Burundi’s and Congo’s border.
FARDC affirm that they continue to hunt down all other rebel groups in the area. This comes several efforts by regional leaders to work together to bring peace in the troubled Eastern Congo which has been a battle field and a haven for many rebel groups.
