Dear WOLRD ,

I am an immigrant from Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). I am hoping to bring awareness to the ethnic cleansing of the Banyamulenge people of DRC.

Over the past few months, hundreds of people have been killed and injured while thousands of houses and villages have been burned down in the Mulenge region of DRC. Some people are burned alive inside their houses. Women and girls are raped before being killed. The wounded are hiding in the jungles with no food or medicine. The government of Congo has turned a blind eye to my people. The international community has remained silent. There is virtually no press coverage.

The Banyamulenge have been discriminated and called immigrants in our own country since the 1960’s. Banyamulenge migrated to Mulenge in precolonial days as shepherds and farmers. They came from places like Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, and Kenya. We have faced massacre after massacre. I fear this current massacre might be the end of my people.

Growing up in DRC, Banyamulenge have faced discrimination until we were eventually chased out of the country in 2004. My family and other Banyamulenge managed to flee to the Gatumba Refugee Camp in Burundi. Two months later, perpetrators crossed the border, forced their way into the camp and slaughtered more than 150 people. I was 6 years old at the time and was shot by a machine gun. My family and I survived that night, but many weren’t as lucky.

My goal is to raise awareness about the recent violence so that we can prevent another genocide like the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda. 

Thank you,
Ishimwe manoa



Words from perpetrators:

When you receive a cockroach patients (referring to banyamulenge) give them a needlethat will kill them right away. This is another way to kill them easier and faster until we finish them all. To you babembe (another Congolese tribe) please pray that many banyamulenge fall sick and fill the hospitals. Where we can mistreat them to thier death. To everyone driving. Run over anyone you see in the streets. To all the restaurants, poison all THIER foods if ther come to eat to your restaurants.  Everyone is expected to follow these actions in order for us to finish every last one of
