CNDP Agreement Calls for Partitioning North Kivu

Le Potentiel reports that the peace agreement with the CNDP calls for the partition of North Kivu into two distinct provinces: the Grand Nord, incorporating Beni and Butembo, and the Grand Sud, which would encompass Masisis, Rutshuru, and Walikale.

Sounds like a strategy to divide and conquer to me.

This would put the Nande in charge of the north, and leave the Hunde to negotiate with the majority Banyarwanda over the southern section, where most of the mineral wealth is located.
