The Uncompromising Résistants

A poem by Frederick Yamusangie

The Land has been occupied

The

Mighty

River

is full of dead bodies

The teachers can no longer teach

The civil servants have bean reduced to the level of beggars

The national army and police have become the enemies of the people

Real misery has spilled out in the entire country

Incompetence is flirting with the elites

And in all four corners of the Land

Children have lost their innocence,

Criminals are being rewarded with state honors,

While men and women of conscience are being

Prevented from giving an helping hand

In this state of affairs, something has to be done

Yes! Something is being done

Something has been made operational

Eight thousand miles away from home,

In

London

,

Some young men and women have raised the Flag of Hope

They are determined and they mean business…

They are the Uncompromising Résistants

What did you say?

Les Résistants!!!

I am sure this the last word

The Enemy of

Congo

The Master Plunder of our Wealth

The Butcher of Congolese

Would like to hear

The arrival of these young men and women

Has changed the entire Equation

And these Résistants are here to stay

Although Anarchy is still persisting in

Eastern Congo

,

The Résistants have brought Hope into our oppressed people

It is now too late for the Enemy of our people

To try to break up those Résistants ….

They are the Unbreakable Freedom Fighters

They are the many faces of just one thing:

The Total Liberation of our beloved

Congo

.

One might choose call them Résistants,

Combatants, etc….

But I know and will always called them

The Liberators of the Great

Congo

,

The Architects of Congolese Renaissance,

The Promoters of Congolese Dignity.

Here in

London

This is not something new

Our Résistants are just in the footsteps of Great Men

As Joseph Conrad,

Edmond

Dene Morel, Sir Roger Casement,

And all the members of Congo Reform Association;

And even the members of the Forces de la France Libre.

Yes!

London

has always been a hot ground for

Those with the blood of Congolese in their hands

In this case, what else can I say?

For those Butchers of Congolese who are still skeptical,

I am sending you a special invitation

Our Peaceful and Uncompromising Résistants are ready

To welcome you in their

Special Way
!!!

Oh! My

Congo

!

(Part I)

By Frederick Yamusangie

Oh! My

Congo

!

You are and will always be my

Congo

Wherever I go

Wherever I settle

Wherever I live

I will raise your profile very high…

So high enough for every one to see

I will shout your name very loud…

So loud enough for everyone to hear

I will make our connection very clear…

So clear enough for everyone to notice

Oh! My

Congo

!

You do not know how happy I was when

I found out that your children can never forget about you

I was even more delighted to learn that your children are

Preparing your Renaissance

Do not ask me how they will achieve it

Do not worry My Congo

Your children are very

Creative and Patriotic

They have already come up with an idea

Which they call Operation Pesa Maboko,

Oh! My

Congo

!

This is just an open invitation for all of us

To give an helping hand in building your future

They have decided to make you a giant of twenty first century

Anyway you are the real and natural giant

All of us your children…

Are proud to be called Congolese

All of us your children…

Feel privilege to be called your beloved

All of us your children…

Will never let you down, Regardless

Oh! My

Congo

!

Do not worry anymore

This is going to be your century

So sit back and relax

Through Poetry, Prose,

Pictorial Narratives and moving pictures

Your children will Build,

Promote and Defend your Rebirth

Just sit back and relax…You are in good hands

Oh! My dear

Congo

you could not imagine

How happy I am to be called your beloved Child….

Oh! My

Congo

!

Oh! My

Congo

!

Oh! My

Congo
