Quand j’étais au village,j'avais vue les hommes qui étaient au combat,lors de la guerre de Rahiya Mutoimboki contre les FDLR(c'est a dire les forces démocratique pour la libération du Rwanda). Les FDLR sont des soldat Rwadais qui ont quitter leur pays pour s'installer a l'Est de la RDC lors Rahiya mutomboki(les combattants) pour que les FDLR quittent le Congo pour rentrer dans leur pays d'origine(le (Rwanda) . Les rahiya mutomboki ne meurent pas des balles. Ces dernier avaient battus les FDLR mais jusqu’aujourd’hui,ils n'ont pas quitter l'Est du Congo. Cette guerre s'est passée dans le territoire de Shabunda dans la province du sud kivu.

When I was in the village, I saw the men who where fighting during the war of the Rahiya Mutoimboki against the FDLR (i.e the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda). The FDLR are Rwandan soldiers who left their country and settled in the Eastern regions of the DRC. The Rahiya Mutoimboki fight so that those FDLR leave Congo and go back to Rwanda, their country of origin. The Rahiya Mutoimboki do not die from bullets, they won against the FDLR but the latter have not left the region yet. This war consequently propagated to the territory of Shabunda, in the South Kivu province.

Hi Juslene,

There is injustice in every war. I am so sorry that things are not right. At the same time, I am happy that you are alive and that I met you. I am not certain what is going on right now in your country, but hopefully you could look for some sort of a remedy through a local NGO or an agency. Sharing your feelings among friends in the forum such as this one, could also be an important first step.

Stay strong, Marija

Hi Juslene, thank you for sharing. I understand from your words that the FDLR soldiers are still in your region in Congo. Does this mean that the fighting is still ongoing in the Shabunda region? Also, I was wondering if you could tell us more about the consequences of the fighting for the people in the Shabunda region, especially for the women in the region.
