The Fall of Goma

A rebel movement that didn’t even exist seven months grabs Goma. That’s hardly surprising in view of the unresolved simmering tensions at the border between DR Congo, Rwanda and Uganda.

  • Melanie GOUBY. Freelance journalist (from Goma);
  • James NGUMBU MUGANGA. Congolese journalist; Director of Publication, Panafrica International;
  • Benjamin SEHENE. Rwandan writer, Author of "The Ethnic Trap";
  • Ebba KALONDO. Head of Africa Service, France 24.

Produced by Anelise Borges, François Picard, Mary Colombel, Christopher Davis.

Watch the second part here.
