English translation by PulseWire member ngalula

We are tired with the war! We all know that Rwanda is complicit in the war that is happening in Goma, the UN does not stop try and persuade the country, while we are witnessing their population participation. Rebels have cut electricity and water. Those living on a daily rate can’t eat; there is an increase of child refugees (who might become orphans) and women widows. Yesterday they brought the population by force go to participate in a meeting held by their leader. If they do not leave the population will starve, diseases like cholera will spread... we really do not know what we have done to deserve all this evil. We do not want our country to be divided and will remain one! We ask you to plead our cause.
Thank you

Your post makes me sad and

Your post makes me sad and angry at the same time. I feel so sorry for you and the many other innocent victims of the war. You just want to have a peaceful, safe and decent life and you haven't done anything that would justifiy the horrors you are facing.
I'm glad that the situation in Goma gets more and more on the agenda here in Europe, meaning the public gets more aware of what is going on. I hope that the politicians and decision-makers realize the urgency of the situation and do not waste time, because accounts like yours underline that something must be done right away.
My thoughts are with and your family!
Warm regards,
Katharina

RDC

Les maux de l'Afrique sont une honte pour le leadership africain.

Je suis desolee mais nous devons reconnaitre votre gouvernement se montre incapable de gerer la situation et ne permet pas a des organismes exterieurs de l'aider de facon constructive a reagir.

Nous n'entendons pas l'Union Africaine sur le dossier de la RDC, pourquoi?
Les Nations-Unies font de leur mieux mais ont besoin d'une cooperation honnete de votre gouvernement.
Comment est-ce que les femmes congoaises pourraient s'organiser en une grande association pour faire part de leurs doleances et pour porter plainte contre les violences dans le pays? L'union fait la force.
Si vous arrivez a faire cela, les choses iront tres vite. Les plaintes doivent venir de la population du pays affecte par la crise.
Bon courage.
