La dignité de la vie humaine en exclusion.

La personnalité des sud kivuciens semble perdre ses valeurs. Les hommes sont égorgés comme des mouches et surtout les femmes et les enfants qui sont sans défence. L'homme du kivu a perdu sa valeur. Des larmes aux joux tous les jours et ces mêmes larmes sont devenus de l'eau à boir pour nous même. Des personnes sont entrain d'être tuées actuellement comme des moutons plus précisement dans le territoir de SHABUNDA. Les grandes victimes sont souvent les femmes qui sont violées et après l'acte ont les tue.Et le grand problème est que les médias du sud kivu sont muselés car s'ils disent la verité qui va toucher négativement les autorités tant provinciales que nationales,ils se retrouvent la tête séparée du corp. Dans la mission du journaliste figure la dénociation des actes inhumains,mais s'il le fait on le tue le même jour. Plus de 5 journalistes ont déjà perdus leurs vies aucours de 4précendantes années qui viennent d'écouler.Quelle personne de bonne volonté pourra nous aider à nous apprendre des bons reportages? Et voilà que même la jeunesse n'a plus envie d'intégrer le journalisme en RDC,au sud kivu en particulier pour épargner leur vie. Et nous qui sommes dans la boite,Faut-il abandonner la carière pour sauvegarder et sauver noter vie? Car nous n'attendons même rien de la part de notre gouvernement.Au contraire c'est le gouvernement qui nous tends la main. Mais devant des tels actes ignobles; Faut-il se taire ?N'est-ce être lâche? Qui mettra alors fin aux violences faites aux femmes à l'Est de la RDC?
N'est-ce pas nos mère et nos soeurs qui en subissent les conséquences alors qu'ils sont innocent dans les conflits armés? Des larmes coulent aux yeux!!!!!!!! Comprenez mon émotion!!!

The dignity of human life in exclusion

The character of south Kivuciens seems to have lost its value. The men are slitting throats like a fly and women and children are particularly without protection. Men of Kivu lost their honor. Every day these same tears are becoming water to drink for us. People are being killed like sheep more precisely in the territory of Shabunda. The biggest victims are often women who are raped and after are killed by the action. And the biggest problem is the media in South Kivu which is muzzled by their meaning of truth- which is going to negatively reach the authorities in provinces and nations. They found the separated head from the body. The mission of the journalist figure is denuncouncing inhumane acts-but if s/he does s/he is killed the same day. More than 5 journalists have already lost their lives around the 4 preceding years. Which person of goodwill will aid us in learning good reporting? And now even the youth don’t wish to integrate journalism in the DRC, south Kivu in particular, in order to save their lives. And we who are in the box, should we abandon the career in order to protect and save our lives? Because, we don’t expect anything on behalf of our government. To the contrary it is the government which we extend a hand to. But before such an awful act; would it be kept quiet? Is it not cowardly? Who finally puts an end to violence against women in the east of the DRC? Is it not our mothers and sisters who suffer the consequences when they are innocent in armed conflict? Tears flow from my eyes!! Understand my feelings!!
