Kabila cannot rule against people will, he should be ousted. As for the international community, there is not much they can do because they are impart responsible for most irregularities.

They are taking advantage of a poor leadership in the goverment by taking away minerals for free or in exchange with arms the governement uses to kill and intimidate congolese.

Congolese have one option, stand and fight for your right noone will give it to you for free. Kabila must go! Enough is enough.

All mobile phones, IPod and lap top smell Congolese blood.
We are tired of seeing our children, sisters, mothers and grand mother raped by external force placed in Congo by western country to fulfil their interest.
