The alliance DRC-Rwand has failed to oust FDLR. Everyone has to come to terms with reality: you cannot solve the FDLR problem without Nkunda and the CNDP. Media and politicians and predators have got to realize that, it’s never too late. Kabila is the only one who does not want to see the facts, he fears Nkunda, now he fears Kamerhe… and we know what he does in these cases, he just want to destroy those he fears. But he cannot always get away with it!

Reuters is one of the most influential media in the world and having its reporters to go that extra mile is amazing. When it comes to the country where I belong, it will always make interesting reading, especially being involved in lobbying Western government. Nkunda may have been betrayed by his friends, the very people who need help are not receiving the same media coverage.

A lot of people around me seem to wish to produce lifestyle magazines, follow fashion and celebrety, motoring or sport, but it is this kind of epic journalism which truely makes an impact.
Here, Braun is up against the dangers of gunmen, mountainous heights, exhaustion and warfare. We can imgaine through the imagry he evokes what is transpiring in that rainy African outback, concurrent to our boring trips to the supermarket or the pub, and begin to count our lucky stars. His intrepid mission into the danger zone is inspiring, I thought front line journalism of this type was fading out, considering the armchair politics which permeates most general reports these days.
Come graduation, I would aspire to follow in these footsteps, who knows, 2015, reporters may be rushed over to the Russian Chinese border to dodge bullets and make sense of an entirely unforseen conflict. It is never easy to be out there, at odds with a forign culture, it is amazing that this picture of the larger world remains constantly updated, and just great to hear that the intrepid reporter survived the early information age. Journalism lives beyond pop celebrety and armchair politics. That is something. At least that’s something…
