Rwandans ‘flee’ to DR Congo over vaccine rules
Around a hundred Rwandans have crossed into DR Congo in recent days, saying they are fleeing the country’s Covid-19 vaccination rules, local sources said on Wednesday.
Small groups of Rwandans, travelling by canoe, have landed on the southern edge of Idjwi island in Lake Kivu which straddles the border, Karongo Kalaja, the administrator of Idjwi, told AFP.
“We have already recorded at least 100” arrivals, Kalaja said.
The authorities are interviewing them to find out why they crossed, he added.
