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.

“We object to the visit of French President Emmanuel Macron to our nation. Given that he is traveling with Rwanda, the nation that is executing us and killing us constantly. He is a supporter of Rwanda, and we do not want him to come to our Congo “Added another protester.

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

With numerous armed groups present, the eastern part of the country has been plagued by violence for almost 30 years.

They include M23 fighters, who Kigali is accused of supporting by Kinshasa.
