Kenyans demand the UN help them in UN probe of genocide
Kenyatta, Kenya – The Kenyattans are demanding that the UN investigate what happened in the 1980s to their country.
Kenyatta’s government says it is “deeply troubled” by the allegations that a Kenyan-led military government committed genocide in the Congo.
The government says the allegations are “preposterous”.
The United Nations has accused Rwanda of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.
Kenyattas claim that the military, supported by the Congolese army, used the Congolee National Liberation Army (MONUSCO) as a proxy force against the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
The UN’s International Court of Justice has ordered the country’s leaders to answer the allegations.
The UN says it will issue a statement after the court verdict.
Kenya’s Prime Minister Joseph Kabila, who is in exile in France, has denied the allegations, and has vowed to defend the government’s record.
Kenyan officials have blamed the countrys history of oppression and the genocide on an international “terrorist organisation” led by the US.
The UN Security Council has been asked to investigate.
