Kenyan President William Ruto heads to Kinshasa on Sunday, his office said, amid efforts to try to bring peace to the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

His visit comes on the heels of a trip by Ruto’s predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta, who is mediating in the DR Congo crisis on behalf of the regional East African Community bloc.

Ruto will hold talks with Congolese counterpart Felix Tshisekedi on various issues including the security situation in eastern DRC, his office said, before heading to South Korea later Monday.
