A small group of Congolese protested the arrival of the French President in the DRC on Wednesday, March 1.

Protesters waved Russian flags as they chanted “Macron assassin” or “Macron get out” outside the French Embassy in Kinshasa.

The group claimed that Emmanuel Macron supported Rwanda, which they believe to be the cause of the rising insecurity in the eastern DRC.

“Over forty million people have died as a result of Rwanda’s attacks on us over a period of more than 25 years, and France took no action. And Mr. Macron would like to visit us today to express his sympathy? Crocodile tears to be shed? “asked the Sang-Lumumba citizens’ movement coordinator.

Later this week, the French president, who began a tour of central Africa on Wednesday, is anticipated in the DRC.
