Malawi Defence Force (MDF) says the United Nations has not given up on three missing MDF soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo, saying they are still searching for them.
MDF spokesperson Paul Chiphwanya said appearance of one of the soldiers who went missing is an indication that the other three soldiers might be tracked down.
Six MDF soldiers were killed last week after a fierce battle with Uganda’s Allied Democratic Forces in the Democratic Republican of Congo and their remains were brought to Malawi in UN flags.
“UN officials have put all necessary measures to ensure that they are located and brought back to their camp,” said Chiphwanya.
The MDF spokesperson said the soldier who turned up at the camp after missing for days, is now doing well but it was not immediately known whether he is still in hospital or not.
The killing of the six soldiers and the missing of the four others unified Malawians as both the opposition and the ruling party condoled the bereaved families and gave words of hope to the families whose relations were missing.
However, in social media platforms, others said it is a futile job to bring peace to DRC as the Congolese themselves seem not to be interested in peace.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
