DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO CELEBRATING CHRISMAS AND NEW YEAR

Posted December 27, 2018 from Democratic Republic of the Congo

hello adorable world pulse! How was your Christmas and how do you plan to celebrate the new year?

Today I am going to tell you about how we  celebrated chrismas in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and how we intend to celebrate the New Year. I know that by telling you about this story I put my life in danger but in the name of patriotism I have the obligation to talk about it.

you know that article 70 of the constitution of the DRC says: "The President of the Republic is elected by direct universal suffrage for a term of five years renewable once.

At the end of his mandate, the President of the Republic remains in office until the effective installation of the newly elected President. the same people who ratify this law are the same ones going against it. after their term of transition and the term electoral (10ans ie 2 full terms) they were unable to provide us with free and credible elections in December 2016. they asked the international community to give them another two years to respond to congolese expectations i.e elect the new government.   the Congolese citizens,we prepared to celebrate Christmas and New Year with a smile and a peace of heart because we knew that December 23 would be the time more waited where will elect a new government   . but none of this happened.

they lied again as they use to, and they asked to be given another week to organize the elections on December 30th. we are at the end of the agreed deadline, they use a new vocabulary saying that it is impossible to have the elections on December 30th in the entire country. They are asking for few more months. seriously! people who lie as they breath!. we spent Christmas in a huge worry, the new year seems to be worrful .  in africa in general, the democratic republic of the congo in particular we have a serious problem of leadership. as leader tomorrow we have a great job to . the fount are destroyed.

in the name of inocents congoleses citizens ,i end on saying this: dear congolese leaders, may be you you have another  DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC  OF THE CONGO that's why you are destroying ours .Us ,we only have one and only  REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO . Our husbands ,wives and childrens live there while yours are others countries ,you invest in other earias but our future Is located in DRC.

DRC did not choose be very large and beautiful country with plenty natural ressources. although let not this be the reasons of it  problems but let this be the rock on which we build our developments.

there is a beginning and the end of everything.you have not been elected to run DRC forever.

#Leave,leave, leave us our country,#you must live.

This is sad. May God protect you. Amen
African leaders will never learn. They wont, they are incorrigible. Congo is fragile, that SOD should leave.

Hello, Esther,

It is frustrating when government officials betray public trust. How is Congo doing now? Thank you for your bravery!

Hi Esther! I'm so inspired with your story. We in Mexico, are afraid right now because a crazy man has been elected as President, I'm praying and hoping that it doesn't come to what you are living. Be safe! Please, keep raising your voice, but don't ever put your safety at risk, YOU are the most important in the world. With love.
