President William Ruto has blamed the East African region's slow growth on the war in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Ruto left the country on Sunday, November 6, 2022, to attend the 27th United Nations climate change convention dubbed Conference of the Parties (COP 27), held in Egypt's Sharm El-Sheikh.
The conference discussed the accelerated action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement, a widely endorsed and criticised treaty for combating climate change.
In his speech, Ruto underscored the Democratic Republic of Congo war, saying it denied the region's economic engagement to realise prosperity.

According to Human Rights Watch, M23 rebels captured new territory in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s North Kivu province. Tens of thousands of people fled for safety, adding to an already catastrophic humanitarian situation in eastern Congo.
The war in the Democratic Republic of Congo has indirectly muted the economic potential of the entire African continent.
Human Rights Watch disclosed that individuals, including smugglers, arms dealers, and corrupt military officials, have profited handsomely from the bloodthirsty war.
Investors who had operations in the Eastern part of DRC were forced to stop their businesses and flee from the country for some time.

A World Bank Report said that moving from 2021 to 2022, the mining sector investment and exports remained the key drivers of growth supported by improved mineral prices and higher public investment but were hugely affected by the way.
Being a landlocked country, the war has affected hauliers doing business with the country in the logistics world.
The parliamentary committee on defence, intelligence and foreign relations tasked Defence Cabinet Secretary Aden Duale to explain the deployment of Kenya Defence Forces(KDF) to the Democratic Republic of Congo(DRC).
Vice Chief of the KDF, Lieutenant General Francis Ogolla, said the KDF is in DRC as a combatant force, not a peacekeeping mission.
The troops would also maintain law and order, collaborate with DRC troops and humanitarian agencies to allow aid, and participate in armed groups' disarmament.
