Cela a réveille la colère de la population qui s'est emparer sur le bureau du partis du peuple pour la reconstruction et la démocratie(PPRD) partis cher au président de la République' qu'ils ont tente de bruler mais ce la n'a pas été facile grâce a l'intervention des éléments de l'ordre qui ont réussi a disperser la foule par les jeux des pierres,crépitement des balles et même des grenades lacrymogènes. C'est une longue histoire........Pour le moment notre ville de Bukavu est sous tentions car les rebelles se disent y être dans quelques jours. Que va être la ville? Comment seront les comportements des habitants? Ohhh mon DIEU ais pitié de nous pauvres pécheurs.

Insecurity

Since the capture of the city of Goma by the M23 rebels, the population live in Bukavu total insecurity. Last Wednesday was marked by the anger of the population because the authorities refused them to organize a peaceful march to support their brothers in the province of Goma. The town mayor has launched a message to Bukavu in the morning of Wednesday on the Congolese National Radio (TRNC / bukavu). He said that the walk wouldn’t have taken place although many demonstrators were ready for the peaceful march. This awakened the wrath of the population that was seizing the desks of the people left for Reconstruction and Democracy (PPRD) expensive parties and the President of the Republic, they have tried to burn but it wasn’t easy given the intervention of the police that has managed to disperse the crowd with games stones, crackling balls and even tear gas. It's a long story ........ At the moment our Bukavu is trying because the rebels say they will be there in a few days. What will happen to the city? How will the behavior of people change? Oh my GOD gives mercy on us sinners.
