There was a grenade attack on Tuesday night at the market I live near. I was teaching near my house at the time, so I was a safe distance from the situation. I don't know how many were injured or killed. I do know that the market was closed Wednesday morning. I asked a close friend why he thought it happened. He said that there are angry militia men living across the border in the DRC. These guys fled Rwanda after the RPF took Rwanda in 1994, ending the genocide. He said it was the first attack he had ever seen in Kamembe. He assumes that they staged this attack to upset the peace and security in the area.
