  • Inside Story - Is the DR Congo on the brink of collapse?

    The UN is directing blame towards government leaders in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) for political tensions, which led to riots and deaths in the capital Kinshasa. Opponents of President Joseph Kabila believe he is laying the groundwork to delay elections due later this year to try and remain in power beyond his two-term mandate. On a continent where leaders are known for changing laws and constitutions to stay in power, does the world have the will to pull DRC back from the brink?

  • President Obama's Congo Moment as He Speaks at the University of Cape Town - June 30, 2013

    President Barack Obama delivered a speech in South Africa at the University of Cape Town on June 30th, 2013. In his speech, he mentioned the Congo a few times to remind South Africans the importance of bringing about peace in Congo. Sadly, his words should not be a celebration of possible action on the part of the US for peace in the Congo. This should motivate all justice seekers for peace in the Congo to press on the US government to stop supporting dictators in Rwanda and Uganda rather than continuing to give us lip service while mismanaging our tax money by providing military support to war criminals in Rwanda and Uganda.

  • MEDICAL TRAINING IN THE CONGO-KINSHASA

    In an attempt to understand the medical training and education system in the Congo-Kinshasa, I made a lifetime trip to meet my former professors in their schools. 3 universities were selected for that purpose : University of Kinshasa, Univ. of Kisangani and the Universite catholique du Graben in Butembo. That selection was intentional because the Congo has gone in the last century from traditional oral educational system to a colonial limited elementary and mid-high school system and finally to a full and comprehensive college system. The later was established during the late 50's near the congo independence day. At this point it becomes very interesting to understand how natives of the Congo have managed to con-duct teachings and research, and how they plan to handle the future in educat...

In an attempt to understand the medical training and education system in the Congo-Kinshasa, I made a lifetime trip to meet my former professors in their schools. 3 universities were selected for that purpose : University of Kinshasa, Univ. of Kisangani and the Universite catholique du Graben in Butembo. That selection was intentional because the Congo has gone in the last century from traditional oral educational system to a colonial limited elementary and mid-high school system and finally to a full and comprehensive college system. The later was established during the late 50's near the congo independence day. At this point it becomes very interesting to understand how natives of the Congo have managed to con-duct teachings and research, and how they plan to handle the future in education. January 2011 was a perfect timing for my adventure. Why? Because at this time there is almost no rain in the Congo. Roads are dry at this moment for a smooth ride. When it is raining in the Congo, business comes to a halt because muddy roads become a hurdle for drivers. Kisangani is where I was personally received my medical training 17 years ago. It was my pleasure to swing by and reconnect with faculty members. Butembo is my native hometown where I was pleased to visit one institution of higher education that did not exist when I first entered college. That is the Universite catholique du Graben. Our filming team was honored by the time they were given by faculty members of these institutions. 2 deans, 1 vice dean and 4 professors were interviewed to expand on education in the Congo. The journey started from Boston, a town renown for competitive education and a town when I have spent more than 7 years working in academic facilities. From Boston to the Congo I have to be pre-pared to meet the contrast in quality of education. However I found one thing in common for both countries: the determination to conduct research and teach the youth. Let us hear what Congolese professors have to say.
