Congo RDC › NORTH KIVU BETWEEN DEMOCRACY AND WARS
December 25, 2016 at 12:01 pm #27121
The Governor of the Province of North Kivu, Julien Paluku Kahongya, has just published a book entitled “North Kivu between democracy and wars: Elements of the memories of Julien Paluku”. Professor Daniel Mukoko Samba, former VPM and Minister of Budget, presided over this grand opening ceremony. It was Saturday, December 17 last in the multi-purpose hall of Full Gospel of Goma. It must be said that this work, which constitutes for its author not only a cry for peace and love, but also a plea for reconstruction, traces the history of the great province of North Kivu. Presenting the book, Professor Jean-Paul Segihobe explained in detail the themes addressed by the Author. Below, the entire presentation of the book by the Author.
What can we say after these masterful presentations and comments of the eminent Professors, if not only you wish good reading and tell you, verbally, thank you for your presence here on this eminently scientific ceremony. All these comments bearing testimony go straight to my heart and encourage me.
In fact, the book for which we are here this morning and which I titled passionately “THE NORTH KIVU BETWEEN DEMOCRACY AND WARS. Elements of the Memoirs of Julien PALUKU KAHONGYA “is, in some respects, autobiographical, since in the first part I describe in what context and how I was elected Governor. Beyond a few central and peripheral subjects linked to my journey from the Deputy to the Governor, to the relations between the Provincial Executive and the Provincial Assembly, to my speeches and presentations, the heart of the book focuses on the Governor’s struggle In a province still on the move.
As the reader in contact with this work will immediately notice, in its first part, I used a style reserved for the novel. Perhaps this is where the specificity of the present work lies, the few lines of which are written as if I were clearly part of the writers who simply write the books they themselves want to read.
Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen
This book of 893 pages is illuminated by my experience, my journey and especially the striking moments of the war. A book is like a child, it has a father, it has a course, it is subject to the vagaries and bad weather of the environment. As much as it is difficult to live a reality, it becomes difficult to transmit it, because it is necessary to make a choice between the intimate part and the universal part, that is to say, what belongs to humanity and Which passes by itself. A book has meaning only if it reinforces humanism, if it contributes to the strengthening of knowledge. And if today I have allowed myself to write this experience, it is probably not to make a novel, or amusing anyone, but it is a quest so that each of you finds in this experience The universal.
And for ours, we have chosen, readily, Professor SEGIHOBE, Rector of UNIGOM and President of the conference of heads of establishments of the ESU to give its structure. A book must be on the baptismal font, and the one who does it with honor for our book is Daniel Mukoko Samba, Professor at the University of Kinshasa and Deputy Prime Minister and Honorary Minister of the Budget. What a good omen for this book? Perhaps also for myself? Well, beside these two professors, I salute all the other eminent Professors present in this room, especially Professor Wasso, who has just made his analysis of the book in his capacity as a constitutionalist.
I thank them most sincerely for spontaneously accepting to enhance the presence of this opening ceremony of my work. It goes straight to my heart and I am particularly flattered by it, because it shows the special interest you attach to the works of the mind.
My great concern would be for my testimony to be shed even modestly to the national experience of freedom and dignity. Time and space separate us. Some are born there, others here, confronted with experiences, no doubt different, and live their differences. The great conquest of man is to recognize himself in the other. Thus we will reach together the strength of the mind which is it outside time and space. It is the place of convergence and resemblance.
Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen;
What is the content of the book, ask some of you? As you can see from Professor SEGIHOBE’s presentation of Prof. SEGIHOBE’s book and the comments of constitutionalist Prof. WASSO, the book on the baptismal font on this day contains eleven chapters distributed for reasons Of the approach I have chosen, in two parts.

The opponent Franck Diongo is under arrest since yesterday, Monday December 19, 2016 in the early afternoon. He was arrested at his home in the ozone district of Ngaliema commune in Kinshasa.
According to some concordant sources, this elected representative of the electoral district of Lukunga in Kinshasa appears this Tuesday, December 20, 2016 at 9 am at the Supreme Court of Justice. Difficult to tell the facts as they happened during the day. Nevertheless, the opinion remains convinced that the hearing of tomorrow will be able to deliver more details on this case. On the side of his political family, including the Rassemblement, this arrest is reported, which falls while the MP and the Rassemblement are in talks under the auspices of the National Episcopal Conference of the Congo.
Martin Fayulu Madidi, a senior member of the Dynamics of the Opposition and a member of the Council of Elders of the Rally, speaking on the radio stations of the UN Radio, denounces this arrest as arbitrary. He also pointed out that the National President of the Progressive Lumumbist Movement was arrested along with six other people.December 29, 2016 at 5:36 pm #27185

LETTRE DU CEPADHO
Le CEPADHO continue à être alerté de nombreuses infiltrations des combattants ex-M23 en Province du Nord-Kivu, en perspective d’une nouvelle guerre à l’Est de la RDC.
Pendant ce temps, notre Organisation n’a pas perdu de vue aux alertes relatives au positionnement d’autres combattants ex-M23 le long de nos frontières à BUSANZA et KISORO (OUGANDA) ainsi qu’à KINIGI (RWANDA).
LE M23 EN QUETE DES MILICES ALLIEES:
Selon les sources du CEPADHO, les M23 déjà infiltrés en Territoire de RUTSHURU tentent de rallier les NYATURA à leur cause.
Le prétexte présenté pour les séduire c’est de faire front commun pour libérer les HUTU contre les MAY-MAY qui les persécutent. Ces rebelles veulent ainsi s’attirer l’allégeance des HUTU pour simuler les libérateurs.
Les informations à notre possession révèlent que les May-May NDC Rénovés de GUIDON auraient déjà mordu à l’hameçon des ex-M23. Depuis peu, les M23 utilisent les NDC-R de GUIDON avec certains May-May MAZEMBE pour opérer des tueries contre les HUTU.
En réalité, les M23 voudraient obtenir le désespoir et la colère des HUTU afin que ceux-ci recourent à eux pour les libérer des May-May; et de ce fait inciter les NYATURA à adhérer à la conspiration en cours.
Certaines indiscrétions ont indiqué au CEPADHO que les ex-M23 ont réussi également à infiltrer les FDLR. Ils seraient à la base de la dissidence constatée dernièrement au sein des FDLR/FOCA, de quoi vient de naître la nouvelle branche FDLR/CNRD.
Eu égard à ce qui précède:
-Le CEPADHO invite les Communautés du Nord-Kivu à plus de vigilance pour démasquer la conspiration des ex-M23 et tous leurs stratagèmes;
-Notre Structure alerte le Gouvernement Congolais et toute la Communauté Internationale sur la nécessité de barrer la route au M23, en vue de préserver la paix et la sécurité des populations Congolaises.
Pour le CEPADHO,
Maître OMAR KAVOTA, Coordonnateur-Directeur Exécutif.
