The Virunga Mountains Community, would like to thank the Congolese Patriots, especially Rais Joseph Kabila Kabange, for having come up with a Vision, that will unite all Congolese regardless of their political ideology.This type of unity was overdue, and some of us were wondering when it will ever take place. Yes, the road is still rough, but we have to start moving and bring our people on that Common road-the Common Front for Congo(Front Commun pour le Congo ). Though some unpatriotic politicians might not see the logic, of it. But Patriotic Congolese do.
