US Deploys Troops To Gabon Amid Fears Of Election Unrest In DR Congo by troublemakea(m): 10:03am On Jan 05
The US military has deployed soldiers to Gabon amid fears of violent protests in neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo after its presidential election.

US President Donald Trump told Congress on Friday that the first of about 80 troops arrived in Gabon on Wednesday to protect US citizens and diplomatic facilities should violence break out in DRC’s capital Kinshasa

Voters in Congo went to the polls on December 30, two years after they were first scheduled to be held, to elect the successor to President Joseph Kabila, who has been in power for 18 years.
“The first of these personnel arrived in Gabon on January 2, 2019, with appropriate combat equipment and supported by military aircraft,” Trump’s letter to Congress read.“Additional forces may deploy to Gabon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, or the
Republic of the Congo, if necessary for these purposes.”


“These deployed personnel will remain in the region until the security situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo becomes such that their presence is no longer needed,” the letter continued.

Congo’s electoral commission is scheduled to release the provisional results of the presidential election on Sunday, but it has said there could be delays because of the slow arrival of tally sheets.

They should first come to Nigeria to monitor the elections, before buhari includes his gay cows among the voters.

US should please send warships, submarines, spy warplanes, drones, and nuclear warheads to Nigeria ahead of February 16, 2019 Presidential election that APC has perfected plans to rig and force a failed, wicked, heartless, visionless President on all Nigerians against the will of majority of Nigerians angry

Nigerians need to bombard Trump with messages on Twitter starting today to call his attention to the genocide and killing of Christian Nigerians ahead of the election, especially in Middlebelt states, Kaduna and other northern states.

US please hurry down here and save West Africa from turning to Syria and Yemen cry
