LES CAUSES DE DIVORCE CHEZ LES BAREGA

La tribu Lega est l'une des 450 tribus existant en République démocratique du congo et dont je fais aussi partie.A mon niveau je sais que chez les barega ce qui peut entrainer le divorce:
- La sterilité: lorsque une femme mariée est sterile elle ne met pas au monde c'est une cause principale qui peut entrainer le divorce.
- l'infidelité de la femme mariée peut etre aussi la cause de divorce chez les barega.
-Le manque d'hospitalitede la femme peut causer le divorce.
Il est généralement constaté que dans tout etat de cause chez les barega c'est toujours la femme qui est accusée coupable c'est-a-dire que l'on ne considere pas la sterilité de l'homme ni meme son infidelité c'est toujours la femme qui y répond pendant que dans un cas contraire on peut trouver que c'est lhomme qui est sterille mais proteger mais la femme negliger dans ce cas

The Lega tribe is one of the 450 tribes that exist in the DRC today. I am a part of this tribe. To my knowledge, here are the reasons why Baregas might get divorced:

-Infertility: If a married women is infertile, she will not be able to have offsprings, which is considered a reason for divorce
-Infidelity: a married woman's infidelity can also result in a divorce among the Baregas.
-Women's lack of hospitality.

It is shown that most of the reasons for divorce among Baregas generally have to do with women'. They always are the culprit. Which is to say, we never consider that men could be infertile, unfaithful etc. It is always the women who are accused. For example, if a man were sterile, this would not be a reason for divorce.

A mon avis la solution a prendre ou encore le mécanisme pour retrouver la paix au nord-kivu ce que les rebelles du m23 deposent leurs armes jusqu'a la preuve du contraire pas cette négociation qu'ils desirent malgres qu'elle n'aboutisse a rien puisque nous ne pouvons plus permetre a notre gouvernement souverain de négocier avec les rebelles du m23.si les rebelles n'arrives pas a deposer dans le calme nous soutenons l'application de la force que utilise notre tres cher armee la FARDC sous l'autorite du chef de l'Etat;
