Edited from the United Nations High Commission in Refugees

"Since the beginning of 2012, ethnic tensions and inequitable access to land have led to renewed violence in the east and north-east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), resulting in the displacement of more than 2.2 million people inside the country. In addition, almost 70,000 people have crossed the border into neighbouring Rwanda and Uganda."

Bloodshed in DRC-Congo; rubber bullets shot at protesters in South Africa and 10 were arrested. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2015 v9n1 p0121

Bloodshed, violence, riots all across DRC-Congo because a cold-blooded killer is trying to hang onto the presidency, and control of the army. Did Hippolyte Karambe aka Joseph Kabila murder his step-father, the late President Laurent Kabila? I don't know. Has he murdered anyone? I don't know. I do know dead bodies have been showing up all around DRC-Congo during his presidency, and that they are showing up now when he tried to do a Nazi trick of getting himself voted in as "president-for-life". Because he is quite convinced that when he stops being president, he will be assassinated. If not before.

On the Humanity Index, click here, President Joseph Kabila hovers around zero. Because he did not kill, or get killed, my friends, the 20 good men who were arrested and charged with offenses they physically could not have committed. That may be because the cops under South African policeman Lieutenant Zeeman were not cold-blooded killers themselves. I don't know. Certainly plenty of soldiers in Congo are cold-blooded killers each with a sub-zero Humanity Index.

My friends, Congolese refugees in South Africa, want to go back to Congo, to go back to farms and lands, to go back to a country with a stable currency and jobs. They know that none of this can happen when the resources of DRC-Congo continues to be hijacked by thieves friendly to President Joseph Kabila.

Today, some Congolese refugees in South Africa protested the vote to make Joseph Kabila president-for-life outside the Embassy of DRC-Congo. South African police showed up, fired rubber bullets and injured several of the protesters. And arrested 10 of them.

The right to protest even the greatest evil does not exist in South Africa for Congolese.

Kambale Musavuli posted the following:

"And they wonder why there are Telema protests across the Congo? January 17 is the anniversary of the assassination of Lumumba by the CIA and other actors. It is also a national holiday in the Congo. The Congolese government decided to get a vote in the parliament on Saturday January 17, 2014... a Saturday and a holiday... to try to get a highly contested electoral law passed that will extend the last presidential term of Joseph Kabila ending in 2016 by imposing a national census before we hold elections in 2016.

Well... Lumumba said to the spirit of the youths "TELEMA!""

Edited from CNN, Nov 27, 2012

"The UN calls the DRC, Africa's second largest country, the 'rape capital of the world' because of the pace and scope of the use of rape as a weapon of war by proxy militia gangs fighting for control of Congo's easily appropriable and highly valuable natural resources, destined for sale in Europe, Asia, Canada and the United States.

"The wars in that country have claimed: the same number of lives as 9/11 for 360 days, plus the 1994 Rwandan genocide, plus the ethnic cleansing in Bosnia in the mid-1990s, plus the Darfur genocide, plus the number of people killed in the Asian tsunami of 2004, plus the number of people who died in Hiroshima and Nagasaki - all combined and  doubled."
