13 ex-combattants rwandais ainsi que 39 de leurs dépendants ont été rapatriés mardi 3 octobre dans leur pays d’origine, le Rwanda, par la MONUSCO. Parmi ces 13 ex-combattants, figurent deux officiers et un sous-officier, notamment un major, un capitaine et un sergent-chef.

Pour la section DDRRR, ce rapatriement est exceptionnel car il est rare que plus de 50 personnes démobilisées, viennent d’un seul groupe armé, (le FDLR) et d’un seul territoire, le Masisi.
