More recently, in November 2008 in North Kivu, CNDP troops under Ntaganda's command killed an estimated 150 people in the town of Kiwanja, one of the worst massacres in North Kivu in the past two years.

Initially, media and HRW blamed Laurent Nkunda for the massacre. Nkunda vehemently denied involvement in a 2009 interview, days before he was ousted in Ntaganda's coup d'e'tat, which was supported by Rwanda and Congo.

Despite repeated requests directly to the media representative for Rwanda's Paul Kagame, who himself has been under fire for human rights violations, General Nkunda has been denied media access and a court hearing since January 2009.
