massacre du colonnel mamadou de la fardc

Le colonel Mamadou Ndala, assassiné jeudi dans l’est de la République démocratique du Congo, doit être enterré lundi à Kinshasa, a-t-on appris dimanche soir auprès d’une source de la présidence.

La télévision publique a annoncé la levée du corps lundi au camp militaire Kokolo, où la dépouille du colonel est arrivée dimanche en fin d’après-midi, selon la même source.

Le cercueil de l’officier a été placé dans l'enceinte du camp avec celui de militaires tombés le 30 décembre après des attaques simultanées ayant principalement ciblé Kinshasa et Lubumbashi, deuxième ville du pays (sud-est).

Jeudi matin, une roquette a visé la jeep du colonel Ndala à Matembo, une localité du territoire de Beni, situé dans le nord de la province riche et instable du Nord-Kivu (est), où sévissent plusieurs dizaines de groupes armés locaux et étrangers.

Le gouvernement a accusé les rebelles ougandais de l’Alliance des forces démocratiques et de l'Armée nationale pour la libération de l'Ouganda (ADF-Nalu), mais cette thèse ne convainc pas de nombreux habitants ainsi que plusieurs militaires.

Vendredi soir, le corps du colonel Ndala a été rapatrié à Kinshasa.

Samedi, une marche de quelques centaines de jeunes qui réclamaient notamment l’enterrement du colonel Ndala à Goma, capitale du Nord-Kivu, a été dispersée au gaz lacrymogène par la police.

Dimanche soir, la société civile (associations, organisations, syndicats, etc) du Nord-Kivu a appelé la population de la province à observer une "journée de deuil (lundi) pour honorer ce héros".

Le colonel Ndala, 35 ans, était connu pour ses nombreuses victoires contre la rébellion du Mouvement du 23 mars (M23), que le Rwanda et l’Ouganda voisins sont accusés d’avoir soutenue, et qui a capitulé le 5 novembre après une offensive de l’armée et de la brigade d’intervention de l’ONU.nous peuples congolais nous sommes fatigue avec le tuerie depuis lumumba , mzee laurent, pascal kabungulu , shebeya, le general mbuza mabe et autres ,nous vous prions de pardonner les peuples congolais, ect

massacre of the colonnel mamadou of the FARDC

The colonel Mamadou Ndala, assassinated Thursday in eastern DRC, must be buried Monday in Kinshasa, as we learnt Sunday evening according to a presidential source.

Public television announced the resurrection of troops on Monday to the military camp Kokolo, where the body of the colonel arrived Sunday late-afternoon, according to the same source.

The coffin of the officer was placed in the enclosure of the camp with one of the fallen militaries from December 30 after simultaneous attacks having targeted Kinshasa and Lumbumbashi, the second village of the country (south-east).

Thursday morning, a rocket shot the jeep of the colonel Ndala à Matembo, a locality of the Beni territory, situated in the north of the rich and unstable province of Nord-Kivu (east), striking several dozens of local and foreign armed forces.

The government accused the Ugandan rebels of the Alliance of democratic forces and the National Army for the Liberation of Uganda (ADF-Nalu) but this theory has not convinced the numerous inhabitants, as well as several militaries.

On Friday night, the body of colonel Ndala was repatriated to Kinshasa.

On Saturday, a march of a few certain youths, demanding back the specific burial site of the colonel Ndala à Goma, capital of North-Kivu, were dispersed by police with tear gas.

Sunday night, the civil society (associations, organisations, syndicats etc.) of North-Kivu called to the population of the province to observe "a day of mourning (Monday) to honour this hero".

The colonel Ndala, 35 years old, was known for his numerous victories against the Movement rebellion of March 23 (M23) that the Rwanda and Uganda neighbours were accused of having supported, and who captained the November 5 after an army offensive and a UN intervention brigade. Our Congolese people have been tired of bloodshed since lumumba, mzee laurent, pascal kabungulu, shebeya, the general mbuza mabe and others, we beg you to give the Congolese people mercy etc.

Cher Balagizi

Merci de partager avec nous ce temoignage sur la mort du colonel Ndala, cet officier dont tout le peuple congolais est fier. Les circonstances de sa mort montrent a quel point la situation en RDC est preoccupante et la necessite de trouver une solution rapide et durable afin que le peuple congolais retrouve enfin la paix. La photo jointe a votre journal en dit long et ne laisse personne indifferent. Assez de morts deja en RDC et il est temps que les acteurs de cette pagaille comprennent que les Congolais ont besoin de vivre en paix.

Amicalement

Elie

ces tourmentes sont immenses

Balagizi, les tourmentes dont vous parlez sont immenses. Comment est-ce que vous les faites face? Selon vous, est-ce qu'il y a une réponse logique pour la violence qui suit la morte du colonel? Souvent, ces événements profonds provoquent une réaction radicale, qui ne contribue pas du tout à une situation qui produit déjà l'angoisse. Il semble que vous êtes très informé en ce qui concerne la chaine des événements, et quoi a causé l'éruption. Dans votre opinion, qu'est-ce qu'on devrait faire?
