« The acquisition, by these spies, of an important land heritage in the perimeter of the international airport of N’djili and the military base of Kibomango gave a glimpse of the preparation of a Machiavellian plan similar to that which was the basis of the assassination of Juvénal Habyarimana and his Burundian counterpart », he pointed out the Deputy Minister, assisted by the Minister of Communication as well as the Spokespersons of the FARDC and the Police.
« Two Rwandan spies, one of whom is an element of the Rwanda Defense Force (RDF), acting under the cover of a development NGO called « African Health Development Organization » (AHDO), fell into the net of the Congolese security services , with two of their accomplices,” said the deputy minister.
« The decrypted telephone of the Rwandan soldier, after exploitation by the investigators, revealed that the latter had access to the various strategic sites of the capital, and this, in complicity with certain general and senior officers of the FARDC », he said. added, affirming that other spies are wanted, « especially since the aforementioned NGO had opened branches in the province of Kwango, Kwilu, Kasai, North Kivu and South Kivu ».
