LE MASSACRE EN R.D.C

Ce dernier temps dans unes de nos provinces de la RDC, la population n’ont pas de paix suite aux violences qu’elles subissent de tous genres. Suite à la guerre de chaque jour et l’insécurité, les gens commencent à passer la nuit dans la forêt et cette fois ci les hommes et les femmes en sont devenues victimes. Quant bien même, on peut arriver au point de brûler 220 personnes dans une province sans motifs préalables de leurs part, vraiment ça fait du mal au cœur, ces gens n’ont plus la joie de vivre. C’est ainsi que nous demandons la communauté internationale et la justice internationale de porter leur assistance à ces gens pour leur donner encore une fois de plus l’espoir de vivre.
En outre, dans l’un de nos villages, une maman était prise par les violeurs pendant qu’elle était enceinte, elle avait été déchirée le ventre, on fait sorti un bébé de sa ventre, cette bébé était une fille ; ils ont pris le bébé et ont fait de relation sexuelle avec ce nouveau né, quant ils ont vu que l’enfant est déjà morte, ils l’ont pendues, puis ils sont partis.
Les personnes qui ont passés après eux à cet endroit, ont vu la maman et l’ont amené à l’hôpital, là elle eut les soins comme il faut, mais après sa guérison, sa tête ne fonctionnée plus comme avant à cause de la violence psychologique qu’elle avait connue.

MASSACRE IN R.D.C
Recently in one of our provinces of the DRC, the population had no peace due to the various kinds of violence that they suffer. Following the daily war and the insecurity, people are beginning to spend the night in the forest and this time around, both men and women have become victims. They can get to the point of burning 220 people in a province without prior motive from their end. Sincerely, these people do not longer have the joy of living. It is for this reason that we are asking the international community and international justice to assist these people giving them hope one more time, to live.

In addition, in one of our villages, a mother was taken by the rapists while she was pregnant, her stomach was torn, making the baby to come out, this baby was a girl. They raped this new born baby and when they realized that the child was dead, they hung the child then left. People who passed by the spot after them, saw the mother, took her to the hospital, she received the appropriate medical care, and after her treatment, she was not longer mentally alright due to the psychological violence which she had experienced.

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

La violence à l'Est de la RDC

La violence à l'Est de la RDC est devenue un jeu. Dans certains villages le système d'anrangement à l'amiable prône beaucoup sur les personnes, comprennez qu'il n'a pas de lois en R.D.C, immaginez vous un homme de 18ans qui parvient à violer une fillette de 3ans, et quand ces parents veulent se plaindre, on fait l'arrangement à l'amiable, et quand un homme veut marié une fille, il part à quatre, prennent la fille et l'amene dans la bourse, la bas ils violent la fille, tous les quatres, et enfin il la donne au propriétaire qui est venu solliciter sa mais en force. Mes Cheres, la violence en R.D.C est un jeu d'enfant. et si tu ose te plaindre, le violeur lui même te demande d'arranger la situation, si tu refuses, il sort avec l'arme dans sa maison et il te tue. Quant les femmes congolaises retouverons leurs joie d'être appeler femmes? ou de vivre comme les autres femmes?

Continue speaking

Anuarite,

The violence you are witnessing is nothing less than true horror. I can only think that this forum is a bit of a balm to what must be your raw and ragged interior.

Please continue to post - it is startling to read, and so very important for the World Pulse community.

A warm embrace to you,

Laura

RDC

Anuarite,

Merci de relater cette histoire. C'est une honte pour l'Afrique et une honte humanitaire mondiale.
Je ne sais que dire.
Nous vous supportons avec nos prieres et nous continuons de presenter la situation du Congo sur tous les medias sociaux possibles.
Il est temps que cela s'arrete. Trop c'est trop. Les discours suffisent il est temps que la communaute internationale agisse.
