Let us size this opportunity to extend to you our compliments for the new year 2016. “lecongolais.net” is a platform for exchange of news and analysis as well as for vibrant engagement with socio-political realities in the Democratic Republic of Congo and on the African continent. We adopt a critical stance towards socio-political developments. We shall make efforts to explore local, national and global dimensions of socio-political phenomena while paying special attention on how they affect people in their day to day battles for prosperity and freedom. Our aim is to contribute to public debate and empower ourselves and our fellow citizens in promoting open society, rule of law, accountable government and development. We count on your support as we embark on this long and challenging journey. Keep coming back to this site. Thanks
