United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees calls on Democratic Republic of the Congo to protect refugees after tragic killings (19.09.2017)

So far, some 57 people with critical injuries were evacuated to Goma and the nearest city of Bukavu, while another 37 are being treated in Kamanyola.

GENEVA, Switzerland, September 19, 2017 – UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency is urging the government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo to ensure protection for refugees and asylum-seekers after a shocking shooting incident in Kamanyola on September 15 in which at least 39 people were killed and another 94 injured.

The incident took place after Congolese soldiers fired live rounds at Burundian protestors in the eastern part of the country, many of whom UNHCR believes were refugees and asylum-seekers. The protest, reported to be initially peaceful, allegedly started after a small group of Burundians were detained by Congolese authorities, creating fears they were going to be deported to Burundi.

The dead included Burundian men, women and one child. The incident also resulted in the death of one Congolese soldier, with six others wounded.

“This is a devastating tragedy. It should never have happened,” said Filippo Grandi, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. He welcomed the announcement from Congolese officials to launch an inquiry into the incident and called for it to be detailed. “We need to establish facts and determine responsibility and make sure that such an incident never happens again.”

UNHCR immediately deployed a team to the area on Saturday where it is working with the medical staff of a partner organization in the local hospital to provide life-saving medical assistance to the injured.

So far, some 57 people with critical injuries were evacuated to Goma and the nearest city of Bukavu, while another 37 are being treated in Kamanyola.

The UNHCR team on the ground reports a tense situation with over 2,400 Burundians seeking protection next to the small MONUSCO (the UN peacekeeping mission in Congo) base in Kamanyola. They are too afraid to go back to the locations where they have been staying. Some refugees have expressed the wish to move elsewhere in Congo. UNHCR is working with local authorities to find a suitable location.

DRC hosts more than 43,700 refugees who have arrived from Burundi since 2015.

Opinion: Mzee continues to be hostile to any voice, but himself!

I have come here,(Buddu FM) mainly to undo the lies peddled by unscrupulous people on radio stations” (…) I have been polite, but when time comes I will get hard at people who spread lies about the government” (…) “The reason why am here is to detoxicate because many people having been poisoning the public with false information” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on Radio Buddu (09.09.2017).

President Museveni had yet another radio show explaining his plans with the Land Amendments and Constitutional Change. As his party and his henchmen has blocked Besigye to do the same. Therefore, National Resistance Movement (NRM) is clearing the air for the President. So when he does that, he should spring some enlightenment, instead he is attack the opposition and the other radio stations.

President Museveni could have told why he and his cronies were blocking Besigye from different radio stations, while he was on his own. Also, why Museveni at the same time stopped an on-air talk-show. Instead, days after he is grasping for air and assaulting them. Mzee, never liked opposition or visions who is not his own. Museveni and NRM have never really been about Multi-Party Democracy or visions for governance.

I am not surprised that Museveni is attacking the opposition and other media for questioning his vision. That has always been lies, since he is the truth-teller who has never told a little lie. He was supposed to step-down twice, he said once Presidents was not supposed to overstay in power. There are countless of lies in the over 30 years in charge. So when he says other people’s lies, he is throwing stones in a glass-house.

Also, when he warns media of having other voices than his. He proves his megalomaniac and controlling sense. Museveni and NRM are the only one for him. Mzee wanted to crush the opposition after the General Election of 2016. The President will really silence the media for his sake, therefore the Amendment cannot be that great if he has to warn the media.

That is automatically lies, since he has to use time for a Radio Campaign to muster support. Mzee is really on thin-ice dancing with the stars, when he has to muster threats instead of policy. When he has to silence and shuffle his deceptions to the airwaves. He spoke afterwards of that, but who cares when he goes all anti-mode and all in to win. It doesn’t matter what sorts of words he says, since he has already put distrust to any voice other than his.

I don’t believe a single word Museveni says, but that is because of decades of deceptions and play the facade. You are naive if you believe this man. President Museveni has used all tricks in the book. The Constitutional Amendment are only out for one thing: Make it easier for the government to take titles and land. So this is to sell-off land to investors and cronies, so they can short-change the public. That is the story the President will not tell. Therefore, what I am writing is a lie and also whatever “what-his-face” is saying on the radio whose not the President. Peace.
