By Charles Ariko and Peter Busomoke A 60-man delegation from the Democratic Republic of Congo landed at Entebbe Airport on Saturday en-route to the eastern part of the country. The delegation, which is led by DRC’s internal affairs minister Mira Njoku, will travel to Beni and Butembo to harmonise resolutions agreed on during the Inter-Congolese Dialogue in Sun City, South Africa in March. DR Congo embassy officials in Kampala were on Saturday tight-lipped about the mission of the delegation. Defence minister Irung Awan, for social services Marie Rose Lukiana, Ntumba Lwamba for human rights and Mukulungu for public service are on the team. Sources said while in eastern DRC, the delegation will visit areas which until recently were under Pierre Bemba’s Congolese Liberation Movement (MLC) and Mbusa Nyamwisi’s RCD-Liberation Movement (RCD-ML). Bemba and Mbusa Nyamwisi recently agreed to work with Joseph Kabila’s government after the Inter-Congolese Dialogue. Sources said an advance team which arrived in Uganda early this week had already proceeded to Beni to pave way for talks on the situation in eastern part of the country. Rwanda-backed rebel RCD has rejected the talks. Ends
