Mozambique President Felipe Nyusi received in Rwanda by Paul Kagame, April 2021

On July 9, 2021, the Rwandan government  announced that it was deploying 1,000 troops to Mozambique, in the Cabo Delgado Province, starting immediately, at  the request of the government of Mozambique, to fight against growing  insecurity and civil war.  The announcement follows the May 26-27, 2021 visit to Rwanda by French President Emmanuel Macron.

RDC: Fortunat Bisele and General Paul Kagame in Kigali, 2020

The IX Francophonie Games were planned in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), between August 19-28, 2022. According to sources within the Francophonie, the games will be cancelled. The official communication to cancel or maintain the games will be published on July 7, 2021. The stated reasons would be  a coverup of the real reasons behind the cancellation. The cancellation aligns with  the previous reports based on similar sources  that indicated that the games may not happen in Kinshasa in August 2022 and  would rather be moved to Kigali, Rwanda (see here). The sources  had then cited widespread corruption within the leadership appointed by DRC President Felix Tshisekedi to prepare the games. They point to a close adviser to Felix Tshisekedi and an agent of the Rwandan Government as being behind the chaos. Hence, the motives for the cancellation will allegedly just be a cover-up for the corruption, the intended chaos, and manipulation.
