In separate attacks in the east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, two soldiers shot dead 15 people, almost all of whom were civilians.
This comes after six people were injured when soldiers attempted to make an arrest and threw a grenade into a crowd.
According to a South Kivu official, a drunk soldier on a boat on Lake Tanganyika killed eight passengers, including children, before being apprehended.
Another soldier killed a colonel, his bodyguard, and five civilians in Ituri province on Sunday. The killer, who was also said to be drunk, was shot dead by a colleague as he fled.
People in eastern DR Congo have been subjected to frequent attacks by dozens of armed groups for more than two decades.
According to President Félix Tshisekedi, “ending the violence is a top priority for his government.”
Almost a year ago, two provinces were placed under siege. However, it has had little impact as the rebels and, at times, ill-disciplined Congolese soldiers continue to wreak havoc.
