Bonjour à tous peuple congolais ! dans cet article , je souhaiterais vous parler d'une chose que tout le monde connait , que tout le monde craint , et qui pourtant a toujours existé et ça existe toujours . je parle bien entendue de la guerre, qui a existé sous de multiples formes: on a bien entendue de la guerre de cent ans , de la 1er guerre et 2ème guerre mondiale c'etait très choquant et ils avaient beucoups des morts et des pillages a ce moment là. et au aujourd'hui nous vivons toujours en guerre en même temp dans cette guerre que nous vivons il ya des gens qui ont perdu leurs vies .ici a l'est de la R. D.Congo il ya une situation très difficile, les combattants du M23 ont pris la ville de Goma c'etait un Mardi le 20 Novembre 2012 à 4h22 du matin ce jour là l'armée du congo ont pris le chemin vers sake à 27 km plus loin de la ville mais c'était après avoir resisté aux rebelles , ces rebelles ont pris le contrôlent de la ville notamment les lieux stratégiques de la ville ,l'aéroport , a cause de la guerre il ya tant des morts des blessés, des violences. Partout dans le monde il est reconnu que la guerre n'a jamais été bonne dans la vie de l'homme c'est pour cela que nous pouvons illustrer un grand nombre des consequences: en guerre il ya un chômage , les pillages, les maisons sont detruites , il ya beaucoups des maladies épidemiques comme le cholera, le VIH/sida, les adultes et les mineurs sont morts, les femmes sont violées et mêmes les filles aussi , il ya aussi un grand crise économique. il ya même les personnes qui ont fuit leurs maisons pour se réfugées ailleurs dans les pays voisines : au Rwanda, Burundi,Tanzanie.vraiment la guerre n'est pas bonne dans la vie humaine.En conclusion nous demandons de nous rendre un grand service pour nous unir ensemble pour combattre en cherchant la paix durable dans notre pays et surtout à l'Est de la rdc.donc nous refusons la guerre nous voulons la paix , nous disons d'abord merci pourtout ce qui ont pris le temps de prier pour nous congolais ; nous disons encore merci au bon Dieu qui nous a prrotege nous qui sommes vivants aujourd'hui même si il ya avaient bcps des morts; nous voulons seulement la paix durable et le calme dans notre pays la RDC.nous avons beaucoup souffert pendant la guerre; alors dès maitenant nous réfusons la guerre nous peuple congolais nous voulons la paix.

THE BOMBSHELLS IN NORTH KIVU WHICH HOLD BACK A LASTING PEACE FROM THE CONGOLESE PEOPLE

Hello to all Congolese people! In this article I hope to speak to you about something that everybody is aware of, that everybody is afraid of and yet has always existed and still exists, I am talking of course about the war, which has existed in multiple forms: We have of course known the hundred year war, the first and second world wars that were very shocking and there were many deaths and much pillaging at that time, and even today we are still living in a state of war. In this war that we are living with there are people who have lost their lives. Here in the east of the DR Congo it is a very difficult situation. The combatants of M 23 took the city of Goma on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at 4:22 in the morning. That day the army of the Congo took the road toward Sake, 27 km farther from the city, but it was after having resisted the rebels. These rebels had taken control of the city, notably the strategic locations like the airport. Because of the war there are so many dead and wounded from violence. Throughout the world it is recognized that war has never been good in the life of man. It is for that reason that we can illustrate a large number of consequences; in war there is unemployment, looting, houses are destroyed, There are many epidemics such as cholera, and HIV. Adults and minors die, women are raped and even young girls also. It is also a big economic crisis. There are even people who leave their houses to become refugees in neighboring countries: Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania. Truly war is not good in the lives of humans.
In conclusion we demand to do ourselves a great service by uniting together to combat war and look for lasting peace in our country and above all in the east of the DRC. Thus we reject the war. We want peace. First we say thank you for all those who’ve taken the time to pray for us Congolese; we say once more thank you to the good God who has protected those of us who are still alive today, Even though there have been many deaths; we only want lasting peace and calm in our country, DRC. We have suffered greatly during the war; therefore from now on we Congolese people reject war and we want peace.
