Military authorities in North Kivu province have issued a ban on motor vehicles with tinted windows, amidst continued fighting between the M23 rebels and the Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

A statement issued this morning by Major General Peter Nkuba Cirimwami, the Military Governor of North Kivu Province, states that owners of vehicles have only 72 hours to remove tint from their windows. Cirimwami says that vehicles with tinted windows are a source of insecurity in the area.

According to the statement, motor vehicle owners are asked to comply with the directive without fail and all security agencies have been instructed to enforce the ban adding that defiant drivers will be exposed to the rigour of the law.

The statement comes a day after FARDC soldiers and militia coalition under their umbrella Wazalendo (Patriots) and troops under Southern African Development Community (SADC) started deploying heavily in all corners of Goma city and Sake town located about 25 kilometres North West of Goma to thwart M23 rebels from advancing.

Fighting between two parties on Tuesday raged in the town of Bweramana, Bahunde Chiefdom, Masisi territory at the border separating North and South Kivu provinces. The fighting forced the locals to flee the area to neighbouring Minova town in Kalehe territory, South Kivu province. a lull of gun sounds was observed on Wednesday morning.

The M23 rebel group led by Bertrand Bisimwa and General Sultan Makenga launched a war against the government in March 2022 saying they were fighting against bad leadership in DRC based on corruption, xenophobia, and discrimination.
