  1. Congolese know that Kabila is not the right President for them. Since he has been "reelected", he's kept silence!Many people are working in the government for free, including police officers, they are not paid! These holidays were very sad for most people. I hope Kabila will try to change his politic. Working for America and Europe should not prevent him from doing what he is supposed to do for the population.
