The Democratic Republic of Congo has sensed the danger of a civil war in the aftermath of the controversial proclamation of the election results of its last presidential election. More than any other country, it has had bitter experience of this situation, so that it has experienced the tribal realities burdened with a mortgage of a nature likely to exert the apprehensions of many observers.
Several factors attest to this. First of all, the arrogant attitude observed in the protesters’ claims of some erected in front of the jubilatory blusters of the other happy winners thus translating into the leader of their person, a cause of pathological hyper emotively which cannot but leave us very sceptical following the events. This considerably weakens the favourable current to the unit.
From which we have observed alongside each other, rivalries surescitating a fierce hatred leading to a deadly fury that has left free-flowing to confrontation, to settling the accounts, to division, to incomprehensible murders, to violent clashes, to repression in the blood, to Jacobin habits with their procession of abominations. All these ailments having participated in the great criminal, political and tribal sagal that the DRC has experienced. Horror! Abject!
The deaths were counted by thousands in both Kinshasa and the hinterland where many supporters of the relative electoral challengers recruited. Some felt (those of Candidate Fayulu) that the interests of the Congolese people were altered in favour of a vicious circle marked by a policy that would not go without the paternalistic influence of the Common Front of Congo (FCC). They confirm that the last election was sacrificed to triumph over the interests of a cabinet change that looks like a cabinet shuffle.
The others (supporters of Felix Antoine Tshisekedi), honored since this Sunday, February 10, 2019 by international recognition and now wearing the official imperium that took him to the 2nd Vice President of the African Union (AU) do not approve of this hypothesis by embroidering themselves in the verdict of the Constitutional Court, which holds them prisoner of their destiny and hears their support for the new Congolese leader while waiting for things to evolve in their favour.
BULGIN OF THE MASSES.
But so far, all the steps taken by the public authorities to avoid a bloody war in DR Congo procrastinate, leaving Congolese exposed to the imprecise. We already perceive this danger in certain corners and corners of the Republic where all the twists and turns of the conflict are at bottom only this issue. A group of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) Human Rights has recently denounced.
It is clear from this situation that the problem has not lost any of its relevance and acuity in certain circles where things are in contradiction with national unity, precisely in certain provinces where the disorientation of the masses would create hurricanes that will degenerate the political scene, some leaders dedicated to obloquy.
In this context, the DRC policy does not seem to be without the tribal influence exerted by a population which seems to consider the tolerance and the good faith of the authorities to make it a weakness. It is especially towards the street that their actions and revolts are directed.
FOCUS ON DEVELOPMENT.
Whence alarm signals are being launched both in the mass media and in the churches so that the revolt is more scolded in its circles. The collected testimonies are infinitely more subversive than disturbing. Fortunately, lately, as a result of this campaign, things are gradually getting back to normal.
The days pass and are not alike. Today, any will of the leaders now militates with the desire for national unity as affirmed in his inaugural speech, President Felix Tshisekedi Tshilombo saying that: “… the strength of the people rests on the national unity and reconciliation … “. The interest of the country therefore requires overtaking especially when it is based on tribal prejudices.
While the country tenses itself up and emphatically represses all the vices of division, the course must be put on the development, determining factor of the well-being which is only able to silence and stifle the recriminations which precede the popular storms.
Mr. Fayulu explained it to his activists during his last face to face with them, enjoining them not to be embroiled in anything that links prisoners to a revolt that makes no sense, inviting them to seal a marriage of reason in a great national union. Whatever one may say, the power of Tshisekedi has challenged the Congolese people to regain their freedom of expression and opinion, justice and work in the land of Lumumba, with the aim of contributing to the favourable trend of the ‘unit.
First of all, mobilizing our valiant services of order has inflicted a blinding failure on invaders of all stripes who perpetuate this spirit of division, taking into account the experience gained in 58 years of independence of our country.
The question is on the agenda in the decisions to be taken against the agitators tending to take a common security device. Because “ an individual left to himself explains Frederick Watkims, would not delay to be overwhelmed by misfortunes because of the disregard of his passions, he would destroy himself and destroy others by the pursuit of reprehensible goals”.
The hour is the product of social discipline, not of individual reason. Left to himself, he would fall lower than the animals of the fields, who at least have a sure-fire instinct for their guide. Strong institutions, therefore, are needed to repress the selfish and irrational tendencies of individuals, and to inculcate them in the habits of civilized man. (Burke).
Congolese tribal haemorrhage can only be stopped by tightening the stitches of the entire population. We believe that the great problem is not only to fight tribalism, but to develop a new cultural order in which moral and spiritual values should no longer be sacrificed, commented Joshua Paul Nkosi Nkiese of the Mega Church Holy Zion Saint of Israel in London.
For this great man of God, tribalism has no reason to be quoted among the Congolese because since the time of Marshal Mobutu so far, unity and national cohesion are our strength, added Apostle Nkosi before concluding his speech by paying tribute and present sincere congratulations to His Excellency Mr. Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo, President of the Republic. This compatriot left the Diaspora to become today the number one of all Congolese around the world. So a Positive Diaspora has concluded.
In the meantime, the camps and LAMUKA (WakeUp) and CACH (Cap for Change) stand in their positions, rejecting any attempt to reconcile. Which is a pity … So Stop tribalism backwards!
