KPFA Morning Mix, 06.03.2013

Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete sparked the outrage of Rwandan President Paul Kagame and other top Rwandan officials when he said, at the African Union’s 50th anniversary gathering, that, for there to be peace to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Rwandan government must negotiate with the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda, or FDLR, an eastern Congolese militia made up of its own former citizens and their children.  

Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete was the first African president to meet with President Barack Obama after he assumed office in 2009.
