Healing Our Communities


The question of who should take responsibility for these heinous crimes in my opinion is straight forward. The very same people who committed the crimes should pay for their actions.

They must realise that actions and decisions have consequences and when you do wrong, you don’t get a way with it. Listening to both interviews made me sick to my stomach. What has become of us? Is this what we have been reduced to, raping women, left, right and centre and taking pride that we can get away with it. I know there is a protracted war and it must come to an end. However, does the fact that there is an ongoing war, mean we have lost all sense of reasoning and humanity?

Reminds me of an email I sent to someone a little while back when we were discussing the same issue.

I had to ask him, what kind of a man forgets that he has sisters, a wife and a mother, and the minute he breaks into another woman, he is violating his own bloodline?

What kind of a man decides to perpetuate generations of pain by using rape as a weapon of war? And what do you call a man who forgets that real men don’t rape, a real man makes love to a woman, not cause her pain.

What kind of man forgets that a woman is indeed fragile and I don’t mean that in the sense of her being weak or that she cannot be her own person.  What I am saying is that the minute you rape a woman, no matter how strong she is, you have broken her down and it takes everything to build her back up.

What kind of a man rapes to prove his manhood and brags about his actions as away of showing he has authority? Unless I am hallucinating, he is nothing but an imbecile, a hoodlum, thug and the lowest form of shit and some more.  I could go on and on about what he is because I am that angry. It is sickening when you hear these kinds of reports.



I agree with these women that the only people who can heal the Congolese communities where these crimes are taking place are the Congolese themselves. You cannot change what you do not confront and how can heal when you think there is nothing wrong with you?

No matter how much money the UN pumps into its programmes, until the men who commit these crimes change their mindset, the paralysis going on in these communities will continue. I understand there is a lot at stake in this war financially for all those gaining from it. They too need to be punished for their involvement, I don’t care if they disguise themselves as foreign investors or what have you. And to think, men are also getting raped is appalling. What are we doing to ourselves?

What is this war about in the first place because I don’t get it? The jokers who are fighting, do they ever get tired? If their aim is to get land for their people, they are hurting the very people they claim to be fighting for. The Congolese government needs to wake up from its slumber and help the women who are suffering this horrendous humiliation.

It has gone on and on and on. When and where do we draw the line?

    Oh, rape. Goodness. I don’t know when this evil will stop. Raping a woman, that’s all levels of wrong. I cannot fathom how these men feel when they are in the act.

  2. they are simply cowards,who only feel empowered by anarchy and thrive in lawlessness. there is absolutely nothing manly about rape, they are brainless beasts.

    It will be an insult for the animal race to call such people who commit certain crimes, especially rape, animals! there is no right word/ name for them cos they are far worse than the ones we have…for me they are nothing, just a huge pile of “ANIMAL EXCREMENT” that needs to be flushed down the toilet immediatly. The Govs. are still sleeping as long as “their own” is not broken. Plain pity…

    @ Deborah, girl, you are angry! It sure is a sad situation

    @ Shola, you are right, there is nothing manly about it at all, at all.

    im more often than not roaming all over the web most of the morning which means that I usually tend to peruse quite a lot, which isnt usually a good factor as nearly all of the internet resources I see are made up of worthless garbage copied from other web sites a zillion times, but I have to give you credit this site is indeed readable and also boasts some unique substance, so thanks for stopping the pattern of basically copying other folks’ websites, if you ever wanna play a few hands of zynga poker with me just hit me up – you have my email address 🙂
