Cape Town - Leaders of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s M23 rebel group have reportedly split into two groups amid revelations that some of the rebels are ready to sign a peace deal with the government, a report said on Thursday.

The rebel leaders, currently in Uganda, disagreed on whether to return to the negotiating table and sign the declaration to end of war as demanded by Kinshasa government, said Daily Monitor.

The DRC government and defeated M23 rebels on Monday failed to sign a peace deal to end decades of war in the central African country, after Kinshasa demanded the agreement be revised.

One of the rebel leaders Ngeve Kambasu said there was need to put the stalemate to an end, adding that the signing of the peace deal would help stabilise the country.
