Namibia hosts mini-summit

Rwandan President Pasteur Bizimungu arrived in Namibia today (Monday) for renewed peace talks on the Congo conflict, news organisations reported. Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and an Angolan delegation headed by Defence Minister Pedro Sebastiao flew in yesterday (Sunday). DRC President Laurent-Desire Kabila and leaders of the Rassemblement congolais pour la democratie (RCD) were not invited to the mini-summit, Namibian officials said. The officials said the Windhoek gathering would lay the groundwork for a fresh regional summit after weekend talks in Lusaka, Zambia, were postponed.
