STOP ! TROP C’EST TROP.

Bonjour mes chères dames du monde entier !

Aujourd’hui je vous raconte une histoire de nos amis du Nord – Kivu, qui ne cessent de souffrir de jours les jours avec la guerre en répétition, mais cette fois ci ils ont reconnus un pillage extraordinaire la journée d’hier 26 Novembre 2012 avec le M23 dans leur pays, ils ne sont pas limité par là, ils ont violés les femmes de toute le degré. Les femmes du village chante la violence, ainsi que ceux de la ville, aujourd’hui s’ajoute ceux du Nord – Kivu, nous qui sommes à Bukavu, nous craignons qu’ils ne nous attrapent aussi demain. Mesdames ! Charité ! Charité ! Charité ! Pour la R.D.C. car nous n’avons plus où aller, et où ce réfugier. Au paravent c’était les massacres de MAKOBOLA, ITURI, MWENGA, NAGASAKI etc.

Mais à l’heure c’est la population de la RDC en générale. Nos parents s’étonnent de tous ce qui ce passe ce dernier temps sur la terre de nos ancêtres. Nos parents nous disent que depuis qu’ils existent sur cette terre ils n’ont jamais vécu des choses pareilles, une fille violée devant ses parents, ces frères et sœurs, une mère violée devant son mari et ses enfants. Le jour où ils avaient pris la ville de GOMA, ils ont dis qu’ils viennent les libérer de l’esclavagisme, mais hier ils ont fait les contraire de choses. Ils avaient demandé à la population de reprendre leurs activités en toute assurance, pendant qu’ils savaient ce qu’ils préconisaient dans eux. Comment un être humain peut arriver à maltraiter l’autre d’inhumain jusqu’à ce niveau. Et pourquoi toujours la femme a été victime de cette dernière ? N’était- elle pas été créée comme les autres ? Ou les rebelles ont vus que seulement sur les corps de la femme que la guerre peut toujours bien se passer ! Mes chères, priez beaucoup sur la R.D.C. car dit on : « Il faut nécessairement arrêter l’hémorragie au lieu d’attendre à quérir une plaie ».

MERCI ! À la prochaine !
ANUARITE.

STOP! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

Good Morning my dear ladies worldwide!

Today I tell you a story of our friends in the North - Kivu, who continue to suffer from day to day with the recurrent war, but this time they noticed an extraordinary looting yesterday November 26, 2012 with the M23 in their country. They did not stop there, they raped women of all caliber. Village women sing violence like those of the city. Now those of the North - Kivu, have added to the list, those of us at Bukavu,fear that they also will catch us tomorrow. Ladies! Help! Help! Help DRC because we have nowhere to go or to shelter.

In the past were the massacres of Makobola Ituri, Mwenga, NAGASAKI, etc,

But now it is the population of the DRC in general. Our parents are surprised at what is happening this recent time in the land of our ancestors. Our parents tell us that ever since they exist on this land they have never experienced such things; a girl is raped in front of her parents, brothers and sisters, a mother raped in front of her husband and children. The day they took over Goma town, they said they had come to liberate it from slavery, but yesterday they did the opposite. They had asked people to resume their activities with all assurance, whereas they knew their intentions. How can a human being maltreat another human being to this extent? Why is the woman always victim? Was she not created like the others? Or rebels have seen that it is only on the woman's body that war can always take place!

My dear, pray a lot for D.R.C. for it is said, "it is better to prevent the bleeding than to wait and cure the wound."
THANK YOU! Until next time!

Meme apres la francophonie

Bonjour Anuarita,
Merci pour votre contribution
Notre télévision nationale chante les actes de M 23
C’étonnant qu’après la francophonie, les choses peuvent s’empirer au Congo
Merci pour les nouvelles.
Je pense que les concernés ont pris note
Nous restons dans l’arrière plan pour prière a 1 Dieu qui nous entend
Dans la paix

So true!

Anuarite,

I agree that it is better to prevent the bleeding than try to cure the wound. I pray that the more voices speak out against these terrible acts, the more people will come together to prevent them. God bless you.

Angela

I was very sad to hear the news that there has been intensified violence in North Kivu. The people have suffered enough. Women's bodies have truly become the battleground upon which the war is fought. The pain of this war will go on for a long long time. It must stop. I wish I knew how and I bet you do too. For now, I stand with you in solidarity. Thank you for all of your posts.
Peace,
Shelley

Bonjour

Merci beaucoup ma chère! permettez encore de vous signaler que jusqu'à présent les habitants du Nord - Kivu quittent leur résidence pour se diriger à Bukavu! une fois dans un bateau; les personnes sont embarqué comme les marchandises dans de mauvaise condition pourvu qu'ils sauvent leurs vie. comprenez que l'insécurité persiste toujours au Nord - Kivu! ma chère; votre aide sévère indispensable.
Que Dieu vous bénisse!
Anuarite!

Merci beaucoup ma chère,

Merci beaucoup ma chère, comme on l'a toujours dit que l'union fait la force, je pense que nos cris ne passerons jamais sans apporter quelques chose! nous y croyons vraiment. une chose étonnante en ai qu'on disait que le M23 se sont éloigné de la ville mais jusqu’à' à l'heure où je rédige ce récit les gens en provenance du Nord - Kivu arrivent à Bukavu entrain de fouir leur résidence pour se réfugier à Bukavu. On ne sait pas qu'est ce qu'il faut au juste à ces milices pour qu'ils laissent les habitants du Nord - Kivu regagné leurs résidence. Ma chère! ce qui se passe dans notre pays nous étonnes du jours le jours.
Anuarite!
