Congo Suspends General Amisi as Head of Army Ground Forces

Democratic Republic of Congo’s government suspended the head of the army’s ground forces, General Gabriel Amisi, after a United Nations experts’ report accused him of trafficking ammunition.

Communications Minister Lambert Mende announced the suspension on national television today, two days after Congo’s army lost the city of Goma, the capital of mineral-rich North Kivu province, to rebel forces.

According to a report published yesterday by the UN’s group of experts monitoring Congo’s arms embargo, “The land forces commander, Gen. Gabriel Amisi, oversees a network distributing hunting ammunition for poachers and armed groups.”

Amisi was also accused of gold smuggling in last year’s experts’ report, published in December.
