The initiative has been well received by these men.They tell Africa News,the project has provided big relief.

Anger and rage among residents of Beni in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo over incessant killings in the Ebola plagued region.

On Sunday, angry mob ransacked buildings following an ADF attack that left at least 11 people dead and 15 abducted.

“Here in the Matete cell, the enemy arrived at night, killed and took children to the bush. Here, the rebels have looted goods including many people, mothers and children. The government must accept that it has failed. Everything has an end, let them resign “, said Kasero Vawere, a Beni resident.



We have only one wish, that the Congolese soldiers and the blue helmets are released from this region. They have done many wrong things.

If another group comes to our aid, whatever its source, provided we are safe, let our soldiers withdraw, for the moment we do not need them anymore”, said another Beni resident, Muhindo Mashauri.
