La paix reste une priorite en Republique Democratique du Congo.

Les parties en conflit doivent être en mesure de traiter la question avec toute sincérité. Elles ne doivent pas continuer à tromper le peuple. Le M23 a d'abord avancé les accords du 23 mars comme étant leur revendication, aujourd'hui il souligne tout un tant des revendications qui n'ont rien avoir avec les revendications traditionnelles, cela suscite tout un tas de questionnement et qui nous ferons croire que le mouvement du M23 est un groupe des terroristes qui totalement sont soutenus par le Rwanda et l'Ouganda, pour quel intérêt, on se demande!!!. Nous en avons assez, le peuple congolais ne doit pas subir ce qu'il subisse gratuitement.

L'ONU doit tenter de comprendre ce qui se passe en RDC, avec ses voisins. Nous peuple congolais en générale et particulièrement les femmes congolaises, nous ne voulons plus continuer à vivre de tels drames. Trop c'est trop. Que deviendront nos enfants? Nous voulons un Congo Uni et développé, un pays ou les droits des uns des autres sont respectés.

Les pays qui agressent la Republique Democratique du Congo sont connus et leur but est connu.

Wilhelmine.

Peace remains a priority in the DRC

Women who take charge of their families but are disregarded

The parties in conflict must be in a position to treat the question completely seriously. They should not continue to deceive the people. The M23 first advanced the agreements of March 23rd as was their claim. Today the M23 supports all the claims that have nothing to do with the traditional claims. That raises a heap of questions and we will believe that the M23’s movement is a group of terrorists that are completely supported by Rwanda and Uganda—we ask why! We have had enough. The Congolese people should not have to suffer what we suffer freely.

The UN must attempt to understand what is happening in the DRC, with their neighbors. We Congolese people in general and particularly the Congolese women, we don’t want to continue living through such drama. What will happen to our children? We want a united, developed Congo, a country where the rights of one another are respected.

The countries that fight against the Democratic Republic of Congo are known and their goal is known.

Mon amie Wilhelmine,

Je pense que tes mots deviennent de plus en plus beaux chaque fois. Merci pour tous ce que tu écris. Je suis d’accord—le peuple Congolese ne devrait pas subir comme ca. On continue de vous soutenir et de rester à côté de vous.
