Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo statement: “We kill the people, because he is asking for freedom” (30.05.2016)

Cardinal DRC

We kill the people, because he is asking for freedom. And this cannot continue and needs people to denounce such crimes; so I took my responsibilities. Shouldn’t we insist on the change of the constitution, which divides the country and the people are already incensed. Me, I’m afraid he’s excesses. The people must remain vigilant to oppose by all legal means and peaceful to any attempt to amend the constitution to allow the current head of the state and his clique to continue to lead.
Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo

French Version: 

On tue le peuple, parce qu’il réclame la liberté. Et cela ne peut pas continuer et il faut que les gens dénoncent de tels crimes; donc j’assume mes responsabilités. Il ne faut pas qu’on insiste sur le changement de la constitution qui divise le pays et le peuple est déjà révolté. Moi, je crains qu’il ait des débordements. Le peuple doit rester vigilant pour s’opposer par tous les moyens légaux et pacifiques à toute tentative de modification de la constitution pour permettre à l’actuel chef de l’état et sa clique de continuer à diriger.
