INSECURITE EN REPUBLIQUE DEMOCRATIQUE DU CONGO

Bonjour mes chères,
suite pour vous mettre au courant de la situation dans notre pays la R.D.C. Nous sommes déjà à notre deuxième mois que nous ne cessons de crier sur l'insécurité à l'étendue de notre pays. le cas le plus connus vous le connaissez déjà, sur notre cher Dr Denis MUKWEGE, tous ce qu'il avait connu à son domicile le mois passé. Chez nous à Bukavu, précisément dans le centre ville, l'endroit où vivait MUKWEGE c'est le plus sécurisé de la ville, mais chose étonnante en est qu'on est arrivé à attaquer quelqu'un dans cet endroit, ce qu'aux environs c'est très grave. Pendant que le Dr Mukwege était en exile à Belgique, trois jours après, la société civile a déclaré une ville morte. Deux semaines après, dans le Territoire d'UVIRA, eux aussi ont fait la même chose. chose grave est que le soir de cette journée à UVIRA même avait connu des crimes, ce que les rebelles sont entré dans certaines maisons et ont tué les gens et emporté leurs biens. Alors, on se demande si les autorités voient tous cela ou comment. Je ne sais pas comment un pays en insécurité et qui subisse les guerres en répétition peur arriver à investir quelque chose aussi. Vraiment comprenez que la soutien de la Communauté Wordl Pulse s’avérait indispensable dans notre pays.
Merci, à la

Insecurity in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Hello my dear friends,

Here is the rest of the story to keep you updated on the situation in our country, the DRC. It’s already the second month of our continued outcries over the insecurity of our country. The most famous case you already know, that of our beloved Dr. Denis MUKWEGE, everything that happened at his home in the past month. Here in Bukavu, in the center of town, where Mukwege lived, it’s the safest part of town. But the astonishing thing is that someone was attacked here, which is a serious problem in this area. While Dr. Mukwege was in exile in Belgium, three days later, civil society declared this a ghost town. Two weeks later, in Uvira Territory, they did the same thing. The serious thing is that that same evening in Uvira there were more crimes, as rebels entered homes and murdered the people and took their valuables. So, we wonder if the authorities are seeing all this. I don’t know how a country full of insecurity which endures war after war can invest in itself at all. Understand that the support of the World Pulse community is truly vital in our country.

Thank you, until next time.

Chère Anuarite,

En traduisant votre article, j’ai lu des articles sur Internet pour mieux connaître la situation à laquelle vous faisiez face l’automne dernier. J’ai appris que le média a conseillé la population de ne pas faire la « ville morte », mais que la plupart de la société civile l’a faite quand même. Je pense que c’était un beau symbole de solidarité contre un gouvernement qui n’est pas exactement réceptif. Je me demande si la fréquence de crimes a baissé depuis ? J’espère que oui…

On vous écoute, Anuarite. Bon courage.

Solidairement,
LightMyWay
