comemoration des 16 femmes en terer vivantes à kasika/ sud -kivu

Les événements qui se sont passés à kasika dans notre collectivité de lwindi, commune de Mwenga En date du 17 Octobre 19
Dans la collectivité de lwindi, chaque personne se chargé des ses activités pour vivre, mais
Dès que la guerre a menacée cette entité, les femmes étaient violées et leurs filles en une
Fois voir même les enterrées en état vivant.
Leurs maris étaient enlevés en portant les bagages dans les lieux inconnus et la majorité de
Ses hommes ont perdus leurs vies. Voir même notre chef coutumier « Mwami » MUBEZA et Sa femme étaient tués dans le même scandale.
On ait arrivé même à bruler les multiples maisons que jusqu’aujourd’hui personne n’a construites.
Les gents se sont donnés courage de rentrer aux villages quittant dans la foret mais
par grande surprise ces actes se répètent a mainte-reprise jusqu’à nos jours qui excitent les gens
de quitter leurs villages et venir s’encombrer ici en ville de BUKAVU sans aucune occupation même
si elles cultivent, elles élèvent, ces sont ces inciviques qui viendront bénéficiés tous ses revenus.
Il faut voir menant comment ces femmes et leurs enfants souffrent restant sans habitation, sans
Aucun équipement, appui en arrivant ici en ville, ces enfants n’étudient plus, leurs mamans
Deviennent les transporteurs de bagage, les revenus sont très peu qui n’ont pas en mesure
De garantir la survie qui augmente les nombres des enfants de la rue car ils sont très délaisses.

Remembering 16 Women Who Were Burried Alive

The events that took place at Kasika in our collective on Monday. In the commune of Mwengo, on 17th of October 19.

In the community of Lwindi, every person is responsible of their activities to earn a living, but since the war this entity has been threatened, women have been violated, and their daughters, some even buried alive. Their husbands were enslaved as porters in unknown places, and most of the men have had lost their lives. Look at the example of our customary leader "Mwami" MUBEZA and his wife, who were killed when all this took place.
They have even burnt down many houses that nobody that have not been rebuilt.
People are being encouraged to leave the forest and come back to villages but to our surprise these acts have repeated themselves until today, which is why people leave their villages to come to Bukavu. They have no jobs and even if they can farm and raise animals, the women do not benefit from their labor.

We need to see how women and their children are suffering, having no shelter, no work tools and no help. When they come to the city, children no longer go to school, their mothers become porters to earn money, and their income is often too little and does not guarantee their survival. This is why there are many children on the streets who have been been abandoned.
