The East African bloc is leaving little to chance in bringing complicated peace to the Democratic Republic of Congo, with traditional community leaders the target in a dialogue push.

Former Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta, the facilitator of the DR Congo Peace Process, first fronted the model, and which the bloc has since adopted, while he was still in power.

On Friday, Mr Kenyatta travelled to Bujumbura to meet with Burundian President Evariste Ndayishimiye, the current chairman of the East African Community. They agreed to “re-energise” the political track.

A joint communique issued by the EAC said that while member states prepare their troops for a regional force, “the political track is being re-energised towards a comprehensive solution to the protracted situation.”
