Through the day, I kept looking to see if the mass grave found in Kinshasa will make it to the Anglophone world, still not. Only three french sources right now I have seen reporting on this matter.
Situation is that for the past two weeks, people who lived in Maluku (neighborhood in Kinshasa) have reported that there were dead bodies in their area. This past week, as they exhumed the bodies, 425 dead corpses have been removed from the mass grave. Of course the government is denying that these dead bodies are connected to deaths of protesters in January which they said only 12 were killed.
If you remember what was happening in January, the Congolese military went to hospitals in Kinshasa where the wounded and dead bodies were and they stole the corpses. Also, currently they have arrested over 400 youths who went out in the streets in January. Lastly, they have arrested Congolese youth who participated in the March 15 press conference that saw the participation of Burkina and Senegalese youth.
The question that I always ask myself… what will it take for the world to turn their attention to the Congo?
I do not want to believe that Congolese are alone in this fight…
If the heart of Africa is having a heart attack, the body may not survive.
To our sisters and brothers who have been killed during the January uprising, your sacrifice was not in vain…. we will keep fighting ’till victory is won!
