The FARDC defector Brig. Gen. Byamungu was appointed deputy commander of M23.

The M23 group fighting in the Eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo has appointed Brig Gen Bernard Maheshe Byamungu as the Deputy Commander.

Byamungu was appointed deputy commander of M23 two days after he was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General.

Brigadier General Byamungu Bernard joined M23 after defecting from the Democratic Republic of Congo’s army, which had turned a blind eye to him.

This man was imprisoned in the Military Prison in DRC in 2012 for being a member of M23, in 2019 he apologized to President Tshisekedi Tshilombo who was still in power.

Although this man was released, he was ordered not to cross the borders of the city of Kinshasa and was blindfolded because the army had to know his information on a daily basis.

He escaped in September 2022 to the East of the country and returned to the M23 where he had been before.
