Peace

As Mama Shujaa, we want peace in our country. As mothers, we have lost our children, our husbands, our parents and our friends. Our hearts have been saddened because of what is happening in our country. Our wish, as mothers, is to have a peaceful country. The lack of peace has delayed development, our children are not going to school, people who would be agents of development and everyone else have no means of doing anything because of war. And so our daughters keep giving birth to children who have no body to look after them. The violence is not sparing mother. Because of that, as Mama Shujaa, we are asking that peace may be reinforced in our country. If our country has peace, we will be progressive. We will give birth to children that we will look after just like other mothers elsewhere. This war has made women hate having children.

Amani ya roho

Uwase, Amani ya mu Congo itatokaka kwa Mungu! Ba congomani balisha teseka sana sana sana wa mama. Alikini ni kujitiya mu mikono ya Mungu ana kumuomba Amani ya roho. Nikuombea wa kubwa wa inchi, wakuwe nakumbuka masumbuko ya wanainchi saa biko nakamata ma decisions.
