CORDE MAGIQUE : PHENOMENE « KABANGA » AU SUD KIVU VILLE DE BUKAVU

Le phénomène « kabanga », corde magique, est sur terrain ici chez nous au sud Kivu dans la ville de Bukavu.
Ce mardi 23 juillet 2013 , vers 9heures,à Nyawera ,un enfant de sexe masculin faisant le rodage sambusa « à base de la pomme de terre »,a risqué de perdre sa vie quand une fille et deux garçons l’ont fait entrer dans un bâtiment sous prétexte qu’ils vont lui acheter de sa marchandise ;finalement ils ont tenté de l’étranger mais il a eu la vie sauvée grâce à son frère qui était dehors et qui a alerté la population par des cris au secours.
Chaque jour nous écoutons à la radio au moins 3à 5 personnes étranglées par cette corde magique.
C’est déjà l’une des guerres froides qui éclatent vraisemblablement aux enlèvements qui battent aussi leur plein en faisant une disparition de vie de bon nombre de personnes.
Pour corriger ce genre de guerre : j’aurai proposé à l’Etat devoir noble d’user tous les moyens possibles de rechercher et de punir les acteurs ;co-auteurs et complices de ces actes inhumains ;ainsi la vie humaine aura revêtu sa valeur sacrée.
Nous ouvrons ce journal à tous et à toutes personnes pouvant nous proposer des solutions à ce problèmes.

merci et à la prochaine.

Magic Cord: the «Kabanga» phenomenon in south Kivu in the town of Bukavu

The «Kabanga» phenomenon, a magical cord, is on site in south Kivu in the town of Bukavu. This Tuesday, July 23, 2013, around 9 am at Nyawera, a male child was making sambusa with potatoes and nearly lost his life when a girl and two boys entered a building under the pretext that they were going to buy his merchandise. They had finally tried to strangle him but his brother, who was outside, saved him by alerting others with his cries for help.

Every day we hear of at least 3 to 5 instances on the radio where someone has been strangled by this magical cord. The cold war erupts because of all these abductions and kidnappings, leading to the disappearance of a large number of people.

To change this situation, I would like to propose that the State makes it a priority to use all possible means to find and punish the perpetrators and accomplices of these inhuman acts; human life will, as a result, take on its sacred value. I would like to open this journal to all, so that everyone can propose possible solutions to this problem.

Thanks and until the next time.

La corde magique

Cette corde magique - je ne comprend pas exactement; c'est quoi, ça? Est-ce que cette corde est une partie d'un rituel ou d'une croyance traditionnelle?

Je crois que la punition n'est pas la seule solution, mais c'est bien sûre une effective solution si le gouvernement applique les lois équitablement pour tout. L'éducation est également important aussi...
