Africa somehow always has some bad stories for the international world. The continent has been extensively influenced by corruption and mass killings. African growth and development experienced significant decline ever since 1950s when decolonization actually began (Meredith, 2006).

But later on they were named as M23 on the basis of the violation of peace agreement. Research indicates that these rebels are actually associated with an ethnic group called Tutsi which has its very close affiliations in the neighboring country Rwanda. Members of M23 started their activities in April 2012. These particularly involved huge crimes against humanity and the Congolese law, for instance, rape, summary executions and child recruitment.

But the government officials argue that the real rebellion arose when Ntaganda was arrested and later he was handed over to ICC (Q&A: Who are DR Congos M23 rebels?, 2013).
Here, it is important to notice that M23 is only a ragtag army whereas the distance
