Martin Kobler, chief of MONUSCO, advocates non-violence for lasting peace in DRC


Kinshasa, 2 October 2015 – “The road to non-violence is often the most difficult to follow, but it is the safest one to guarantee stability and social peace.

The use of non-violence is a proof of courage and conviction,” declared Martin Kobler, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General in the DRC.

Over the past twelve months, hundreds people were either killed or injured in attacks carried out across the country, especially in the east. Innocent victims, children, mothers and fathers were traumatized by the slaughters inflicted on the Congolese people.
