Bosco suspended; CNDP to be relocated?

This just in:

Apparently, Presidents Kagame and Kabila also discussed the fate of General Bosco Ntaganda during their meetings. They decided to suspend him as the deputy commander of Amani Leo operations and informed him last week about their decision. They also recommended for the two wings of CNDP (pro-Bosco and pro-Nkunda) to reconcile their difference. The two wings then apparently met in Goma and suggested that Bosco seek asylum as there was little they could do for him.

Also controversially, the presidents discussed the redeployment of CNDP forces outside of the province, a matter that has always been fiercely resisted by the CNDP. They are afraid for their safety and that, once outside of the province, they will lose their military importance and clout. Bas-Congo was reportedly mentioned as a redeployment location.

These decisions, if implemented, would be extremely significant.
