MASACRE DE KASIKA

Pendant le masacre de Kasika, les femmes en ont été victime, ceux qui étaient en ceinte, on les déchirait les ventres, on prends l'enfant, on le jete puis on mange leurs coeurs et les enfants on le pulent comme les maniocs.
les autres qui reste on prenner l'essence on verse sur les maisons puis on brule la maison et ils mouraient comme ça.
les hommes on leurs coupent les sexes et on jete.
comprennez que la violence en RDC est devenue comme la nouriture de chaque jour, quand on peut arriver même à faire accoucher une femme qui ne pas encore preute.

KASIKA Massacre;
During the Kasika massacre, women were victims. Those who were pregnant, their bellies were torn, they threw the child and eat his heart and children were pounded like cassava. With other children, fuel was poured on the houses and those houses were burnt so the children died just like that. As for men, their sexual organs were cut and thrown. You should know that violence in DRC has become everyday food; they succeed to make a woman to give birth when she is not yet ready.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

difficult story to tell

Mambo -

I cannot imagine what it must have been like to experience what you did, but I so thank you for being brave enough to tell the story. It is so hard to understand how brutal people can be to eachother. Women such as you, willing to speak out, are what gives places such as the Congo hope. We all hope and pray for peace and justice there. No women or children, or anyone should have to experience such violence.

Regards,

Rachel

Hello Mambo

Dearest Mambo,

Thank you so very much for sharing this testimony with us, your online family. It must be difficult to talk about such horrific things. I hope that through speaking out your people can find some comfort and even better a means to end all the continual daily violence bestowed upon all women, men and children. We are all praying for peace in your country and I also pray that strong and brave women like yourself continue to be strong and brave for your women and children's sake.

Sending you prayers for peace.
