During the past decade they have mainly served in typical UN observer and peacekeeping roles. But in March of this year, a new type of brigade was introduced to ensure peace in the increasingly restive area. The Force Intervention Brigade is a specialized unit made up of more than 3,000 South African, Tanzanian and Malawian troops. They are heavily armed and mandated to conduct offensives in the DRC in an aim to guard against an escalation of sectarian violence and keep rebels out of the eastern city of Goma. A Malawian brigade was out on a routine patrol this Sunday, covering a 20 kilometer-radius around Goma''s perimeter. More than 5,000,000 people have been killed and millions of others have been displaced by fighting between the Congolese army and some 20 rebel groups operating in the east of the country. Both working alongside the DRC''s army and operating independently, the brigade''s infantry, artillery, and special forces units are mandated to hit rebels and their positions. "One of our duties is to protect civilians. We are supporting the FARDC government forces to ensure that the civilians within Goma and the outskirts are safe from all negative armed groups activities," said Major Pethias Mdoka, an officer of Force Intervention Brigade. But many are asking how the financially-strapped UN can finance an endeavor, with the cost of keeping the brigade on the ground at 140 million U.S. dollars. That''s on top of the annual 1.4 billion U.S. dollars price tag already attached to the UN operation in the DRC.
