For the last two weeks, congolese have been watching, waiting, yelling, insulting, voicing their opinions on social networks for the elections that happened for the third time in the history of Congo. Family members and friends dropped their guards down and went at each other throats for supporting such and such candidate.
Most of the Congolese, me included, felt like since Tunisia had her revolution, Egypt, Lybia, Congo should be next.
Yes, Congo will be next. Just not now.
Yet the seeds have been planted in the minds of young Congolese and I remain hopeful:
Hopeful that Western vultures will not have the last word,
hopeful that the current president and every congolese authority who stood by while 8 millions of Congolese were being slaughtered and raped will be brought to Justice for being passive
hopeful that minerals will serve Congolese needs for education, health and communication
hopeful that there will be less tribalism and more nationalism
hopeful that the Heart of Africa will be allowed to beat again and energize the rest of the continent.
