Bosco Ntaganda in ICC custody

General Bosco Ntaganda, formerly of the Democratic Republic of Congo Army, originally of Rwanda, is now at The Hague awaiting trial in the International Criminal Court.

The General, delightfully nicknamed “The Terminator” by Africans, has been wanted for some years. He surrendered at the US Embassy in Rwanda earlier in the week, after the collapse of his power base during infighting in the M23 rebel movement. Herald of War understands his surrender was mainly a matter of avoiding retribution at the hands of his rivals.

General Ntaganda faces ten charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including rape, murder, terrorising civilians and recruiting child soldiers. He is reputedly responsible for a number of massacres during the Congo’s long war, which claimed more lives than any conflict since 1945.
