Hello ! Once again I stand in front of you thanks to this machine to talk to you about these unpolite fathers who keep on damaging our country by going to prostitutes who do now know what is good or bad ! These illiterate men are not aware of the consequences of having children who then end up being « maibonbon » - street children who steal, pillage, rape... These young people do a lot of damage because they could not study and nobody ever taught them about order. And then we, women with a bit of conscience, have to deal with the issue ! As long as we will not address this, no development will be possible ! This is why we were proud to be contacted by Mummy Neema, God bless her ! If you get interested in this situation, you can find families with tired and old mums surrounded by young children and struggling alone to feed them : should it be their work or the dad's ?! This is why we ask you to help us by any means so that these marginalized mums can get a bit of relief. This can be a good thing for us to be in touch with other women around the world. Please answer me if you can manage to understand my French ! Good bye

Bonjour!

Bonjour Mukuzo ! Je suis traductrice volontaire pour World Pulse, et l'équipe pense que votre expérience doit être partagée avec les membres de la communauté qui ne parlent pas français. Merci pour partager votre expérience ! Votre contribution est importante. Pourriez-vous en dire un peu plus sur la situation de ces enfants des rues ? Comment les mères arrivent-elles à subvenir aux besoins des enfants ? Et qui est cette « Maman Neema » qui semble être très importante pour vous ? Félicitations pour votre courage et votre détermination à partager avec nous votre opinion sur la situation du Congo. Respectueusement, Aurore

the privilege of irresponsibility

Dear Mukuzo,
Thank you for reminding us of the consequences of such irresponsible behavior in our patriarchal societies and the burden that women bear as a result. I agree with you that true social development is impossible unless some change comes about. Thanks to your post, I will learn more about Mummy Neema. Perhaps you can tell us more? Thank you for speaking out.

Sympathy

First of all, thank you for sharing your story with us. Without women like you to uncover these issues, the rest of us around the world would not be aware of the trials you have to go through. It must be so frustrating to be stuck in a society where the men refuse to take responsibility, refuse to plan for the future, with such severe consequences. I completely agree with you that it is of equal duty of the father to care for the offspring he has created. Steps must be taken to hold these men accountable, and you, Mukuzo, have taken the first step by speaking out and informing us all to the situation. Hopefully more steps will follow and next actions can be taken - I will learn about maman Neema and help increase attention to your plight. Best of luck to you.

Sincerely,
Nicole

Dear Mukuzo, Thank you so much for bringing out this problem. It is a problem every where however much the government to criminalize prostitution there will be always be prostitutes in society. I however want to know more about Mama Neema's activities and it is good idea to seek for assistance from other organisations that are led by women so that these mothers can be assisted either financially or given some kind of vocational skill and start up capital so that they are able to fend for their families and do not have to depend on their husbands. Stay blessed my sister and keep up the good work.

Thank you, Makuzo

Thank you Makuzo for your post, for your tribute to Neema and for your understanding of the plight of women who take responsibility for caring for children who are not their own. Women often take on responsibilities in the absence of adequate social services. Someone must care for children, or as you wisely say they become another social burden, and women often step up to take on the job. I hope you can follow my English! (I apologize that I do not speak French!) Please keep writing. Your voice is so important!
