Our President is a piece of crap. We held elections last year and he cheated. He knew that the elections were going to be contested, so he sent the magistrates on a vacation 9 a magistrates' kid told me this). 

 There are people who we would like to actually elect and move our country forward. That's why it pains me so much, when people here talk about not wanting to vote. I grew up in the DRC under Mobutu, I marched in protests, my school was looted and destroyed, I watched soldier rebels and went to bed listening to the sound of gunshots. I still remember my mother waking us up in the middle of the night and huddling in the hallway for fear of stray bullets.  

The Congolese want peace and prosperity, we just don't sit back and wait for The West to save us. We marched and protested against Mobutu, we also tried to vote out Kabila, but it seems that democracy might not be the answer for the DRC.   Forgive me for rambling and the grammatical errors, but this is all very upsetting.

It's not just a question of money.  The people on top are extremely corrupt. 
Japan gave bags of semolina to the DRC as a humanitarian gift and the Congolese government turned around and sold it back to the people at a discounted price. The bags were still marked "gift from Japan" Confused.

Keep talking Chuckz, rambling or not. You have actual first hand knowledge of the thread topic. You're basically the only reason I'm still in this messy thread.

Alias-please.

That's awful@purp. Many of us want to help, but don't know what or how or who to give our aid to. Proof of that is the Kony saga, and then the feeling of betrayal once the curtain was lifted. Most of us feel like nobody should have to live through those things, ESPECIALLY children, but we are honestly at a loss. Not that we're this overflowing bucket of wealth, but whatever we can do we gladly would.

I hope this doesn't sound cold hearted. But I think the way that your country may get that help is from the inside out. Most Americans don't give a flying crap what happens to your country and some would rather see it destroy it self. But generations of Africans who have left there and lived overseas can really make a difference, if they come together and go back to their homeland. This won't happen overnight, but it needs to happen. Americans have done more damage then good in most African countries that they tried to "help" with imho.

I have no idea. 

I have cried and prayed for peace in the DRC, but have concluded that we are truly Censored 

Edited to add: Kabila has to go.  I wouldn't mind a military coup. As long as our new overlord secures our borders and pays government employees, we'd be willing to live without democracy. 

My cousins have expressed missing Mobutu.

Yes, I think that's the reason why nothing changes in those countries in Africa that are going through genocides, corrupt governments and what not...the PEOPLE need to fight. Waiting for the help of more democratic countries is like waiting for Santa Claus on Christmas's eve.
The blacks here had to fight for their rights in the 60's....if the people of those African countries started fighting, the rest of the world might notice (not just make lame documentaries about it or send money to corrupt "governments") and do something to help.

Just remember the Apartheid and the end of it.

Obama can't even look out for "his" people here who voted for his ass, so why are we surprised? Like reallyLOL
