LA PAIX ET LA SECURITE DANS DES MILIEUX RURAUX

La paix et la sécurité sont en défaillance au SUD-KIVU en général et plus particulièrement dans les milieux ruraux y compris les hauts plateaux d’ITOMBWE. . Les causes et les origines du manque de paix et de la sécurité sont nombreuses, mais l’origine principale est la guerre que notre pays la R.D.CONGO a connue de puis 1996 jusqu’aujourd’hui.
Cette guerre a causé beaucoup de malheur à la population de haut plateau d’ITOMBWE parmi ces malheureux on peut citer : la pauvreté, le déplacement massif de la population, la prolifération des armes dans la population c’est-à-dire les armes non contrôlées l’un des problèmes majeur qui est à l’origine de l’insécurité grandissante dans cette zone d’ITOMBWE.
Signalons encore que le haut plateau d’ITOMBWE est situé dans le territoire de mwenga au sud-kivu où vivent différentes communautés : babembe, banyamulenge ,bafulero barega, bashi,Banyindu
Cette guerre a provoqué aussi des conflits entre ces différentes communautés. Vous trouverez une entité où il y a la prolifération des armes dans la population et les conflits inter communautaires. Ce qui va se passer aujourd’hui les autorités administratives, les notables et la population sont entrain de chercher les solutions pour résoudre ces différents problèmes. Ceci n’est pas chose facile à faire mais nous espérons que avec les efforts de tous les acteurs que nous venons de citer ci-haut la solution doit être trouvée car rien n’est impossible.
PISTE DES SOLUTIONS
Compte tenu de la situation de l’insécurité et de manque de la paix que nous venons de signaler ci-haut nous proposons comme piste des solutions suivantes.
Aux autorités administratives du milieu de garantir la paix et la sécurité de la population dans leur milieu administratif en fin de permettre à la population de menée une vie heureuse, d’organiser les ateliers de formation pour la paix et la sécurité entre les différentes communautés de haut plateau, de réconcilie les notables des différentes communautés qui vivent à ITOMBWE pour que à leur tour puisse concilier aussi leurs frères.
A la population : de savoir que chaque personne qu’il soit de telle ou telle tribut doit jouir de ses droits pour que la paix et la sécurité revienne et que tout le monde vive en paix, que chaque personne soit tolérante envers son voisin.
Aux agents de développement et les organismes de droit de l’homme : de soutenir les déplacés de guerre, de créer des activités de développement pour réduire la pauvreté au sein de la population.
A la justice congolaise : d’éradiquer l’impunité qui règne dans les milieux ruraux de la R.D.Congo en appliquant les règles et les normes établies par la constitution congolaise.

Peace and security measures are generally failing in South Kivu and particularly in rural areas, including the high plateaus of Itombwe. There are many causes and origins of this lack of peace and security, but the main reason is this war that our country has known since 1996.
This war has caused a lot of hardship among the people of the Itombwe mountains, which includes poverty, massive displacement of the population, and proliferation of weapons. Weapons are not controlled, which is one of the major problems that is the source of growing insecurity in this area.
It should be noted that the Itombwe mountains are located in the mwenga territory in South Kivu where the following communities live: babembe, banyamulenge, bafulero barega, bashi, banyindu
This war also caused conflicts between these different groups. You can find entities where proliferation of weapons prevail among the population and inter-community conflicts. Administrative authorities, community leaders and the public are now looking for solutions to these various problems - this is what will happen. This is not easy to do, but we hope that a solution will be found with the efforts of all the aforementioned stakeholders, because nothing is impossible.
SOLUTION PATH
Taking into account the aforementioned insecurity and lack of peace, we offer the following solution.
Whereby the authorities of each jurisdiction ensure the peace and security of the population in their administrative jurisdiction, allowing the population to lead a happy life, as well as organize training workshops for peace and security between the different high elevation communities and reconcilation between the leaders of various communities living in the Itombwe mountains so that they can in turn reconcile their brethren.
Whereby citizens know that each individual regardless of ethnic group has every right to enjoy their right to peace and security, so that everyone lives in peace and that each person tolerates their neighbor.
Whereby development officers and human right organizations support those displaced by war and create development activities to reduce poverty among the population.
It is up to the Congolese judicial system to eradicate impunity that prevails in rural areas of the DRC by applying the rules and standards established by the Congolese constitution.
