LA BEAUTE CACHEE DU CONGO

Il est vrais que le Congo est considéré comme « le pire endroit au monde pour les femmes »ceci je peux dire que c’est réel parce que je dirai que les conséquences, les désordres toutes les retombés etc.… laissés par les guerres en répétition ne pointent particulièrement que les femmes .surtout les violences sexuelles faites sans pitié à ce dernières. Ceci est devenu l’arme de guerre des ennemis contre les congolaises, la pauvre femme congolaise subit innocemment les conséquences politiques aux quelles elle ne ronge même pas je dirai, malgré la parité dit- on
A lors il serait mieux que tous les pays du monde puissent s’impliquer si possible aux problèmes politiques du Congo pour que la femme de ce pays respire un peu une paix durable
Quand Dieu pourra bénir et que la femme ait cette paix toutes ces richesses qui sont entrain d’être découvertes du jour par les étrangers celle –ci sera heureuse et produira d’avantage pour le progrès de cette nation congolaise .les expériences positives, exemple les hommes qui extraient l’or, les cassitérites, les diamants, le collât etc … les rendent au moins possesseur de l’argent qui leur facilitent une vie facile si on peut le dire. Si les guerres et l’insécurité suceraient la vie du congolaise jaillirai une agréables santé.
O Congo mon pays,
Comme tu es grand
Comme tu es beau
Comme tu es riche
Malheureusement ta richesse te fait manquer la paix par les étrangers jaloux de ta grandeur, ta beauté et ta richesse.
Heureusement que Dieu est encore avec nous .

The hidden beauty of the Congo

It is true that the Congo is considered « the worst place for women ». I can admit that it is real because of the consequences, disorders, all of the fallouts etc, which are remnants from the wars, and which repeatedly target women especially merciless sexual violence against them. These violences have become the enemies’ war weapon against Congolese women. The poor Congolese woman innocently suffers from the political consequences she does not even think about despite parity, some people say.

Therefore, it would be better if other countries were to get involved in the political problems of the Congo so that the women of this country canlook forward to some lasting peace.

When God will be able to bless them, the women can finally have this peace, all of the wealth that is being discovered by foreigners would finally be of advantage for the progress of this Congolese nation. Positive experiences, such as those of men who extract gold, Cassiterite, diamonds etc… and actually pocket the money which facilitates an easy life for them.

If wars and insecurity were to cease, it would spark good health in Congolese women.

O Congo my country

How great you are

How beautiful you are

How rich you are

Unfortunately, foreigners' jealousy of your wealth, greatness and beauty gives you no peace.

Fortunately, God is still with us.
