At an emergency press conference this morning, the Nbuto Minister for Military Affairs, Colonel Jean Claude Gruyere, presented to the international press irrefutable evidence of an escalation in the on-going conflict between the belligerent states of Mbote and Zumata.
The photographs displayed at the press conference clearly show a coastal class submarine aground at an undisclosed location on the shores of Lake Bagombo. In his statement, Colonel Gruyere identified the submersible as a newly aquired Kikulu class submarine of the Mbote Coastal Defence Force.
