Hopeful News

It seems so rare to run into anything that might resemble good news in most of Africa, that it's nice to see a good sign in an area that was, until recently, embroiled in civil war.

Burundian rebels lurking in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo are turning in their weapons and heading home as peace slowly spreads across the central African region, officials said on Thursday.

The vast DRC and tiny neighbouring Burundi have both incorporated rebels into their respective governments in recent months, raising hopes that years of conflict may be winding down in the heart of the continent.

As I said, good newsl. Hopefully this can be nurtured into something lasting.

Read the story.
