COMMEMORATION IN BUKAVU OF THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF SOLIDARITY FOR THE VICTIMS OF TORTURE

The young women ambassadors for the Maman Shujaa Center were present in this conference hall because we too are defenders of human rights. Why did we participate? Because it is our job to find peace for everyone, everywhere and at all times.
Torture is an act in which pain or acute physical or mental suffering are deliberately inflicted on someone in order to get testimony from them or to punish them for something they or a third person has done or which they are suspected of having done.
Two cases of torture in South-Kivu:
- Ten people were tortured by police officers at 24 Square last Saturday night. The victims were coming from a party in the village children's hall S.O.S./Bukavu when the police officers took their purses and telephones, money and more, but luckily there were students from our universities who intervened and fought with the police and the ten people escaped.
- In Kasika in the Mwenga territory, a woman had a boyfriend who was "military" without her knowing it. The night of the 4th or 5th of this month, this man came with two other men to the victim's house and tore apart the woman's chest to take her heart. The authorities in Mwenga territory are still looking for these men. This is why the young women ambassadors for the Maman Shujaa Center say no, no, no to all types of torture.
We cannot finish this article without thanking our governor, Marcelin Cishambo, who encouraged everyone to "continue their work until the end", for his presence in the hall. And of course we cannot forget the great Miss Neema who also participated and arranged for us to participate in this conference and we also thank all the provincial authorities. Thank you to our readers.
