La beauté cachée du congo

Le congo est un pays riche en presque tout notamment : en sources minérales ,( les minerais) ;en faune et flore ( les minerais) ;en faune et flore, en eau, en énergie électriques en agriculture et élevage pour ne citer que cela ,mais malheureusement toutes ,ces richesses ne répondent pas aux besoins de sa population qui est aussi en grande densité à plusieurs cultures selon les tribus et constituée des femme à 51% et ce manquement de non profit de la population à la richesse est une violation des droits humains à savoir :
 Droit à l’ éducation : ce sont toujours les parents qui continuent à payer les enseignants alors que le gouvernement à déjà proclamé la gratuite de l’enseignement à l’école primaire.
 En ce sens les éducateurs sont non motivés avec ce salaire et prime de misère qui coduisent à une éducation basse des enfants .
 Droit à la vie ; chaque jour nous voyons dans nos quartiers et entendons à la radio qu’une personne a été tué, assassiné et sans enquête.
 Droit à la santé : des hôpitaux non équipés, si pas équipés avec des infrastructures au delà brièvement avancé, des personnels de santé non payés, et déjà passionnés et qui souvent ne se soucient plus de malades.
 Droit à la justice : l’impunité la corruption rongé la justice et la raison du plus fort est toujours la meilleure comme certains écrivains l’ont dit
 Violences sexuelles : souvent les femmes et jeunes filles en sont victimes d’ici et là dans des buvettes transformées en maison de tolérance et de prostitution des fillettes influencées des mauvais adultes, exposée aux films pornographiques et au proxénétisme.

The Hidden Beauty of the Congo

The Congo is a country rich in nearly everything, especially: mineral springs (ores), flora and fauna, water, electrical energy, agriculture and livestock farming, to name a few. But unfortunately, all of these riches do not fulfill the needs of its population, one which is very dense, made up of several cultures and tribes, and of which females constitute 51%; and this lack of exploitation of richness by the population is a human rights violation, namely:

• The right to education: Parents continue to pay teachers when the government has already announced free education at the primary level.
• In this case, educators are not motivated by this extremely low salary and bonus, which leads to a poor education for children.
• The right to life: Every day we see in our neighborhoods and hear on the radio about a person who has been killed or murdered, and there is no investigation.
• The right to health: Ill-equipped hospitals, and if equipped, with infrastructure that is barely up-to-date with advances, unpaid health staff who are no longer passionate and who often do not care about the sick.
• The right to justice: Impunity and corruption eat away at justice, and the strongest person is always right, as some writers have put it.
• Sexual violence: women and young girls are often victims of this violence. In refreshment areas that have been transformed into brothels, influenced by evil adults, little girls are prostituted and exposed to pornographic films and to pimping.

Chère Hugette, Je vous

Chère Hugette,
Je vous remercie pour votre analyse des problèmes qui affectent la RDC. Je suis d’accord avec vous que le manquement de non profit des richesses du pays peut se considérer une violation aux droits humains. J’ai trouvé particulièrement troublant votre récit des violences sexuelles dont certaines femmes sont victimes. Mais ce sont ce type de récits qu’il faut pour bouleverser le monde et causer une réaction.

Bien à vous!
Pilar
