Sometimes towards the end of last year, when every news outlet was talking about the impending doom for the FDLR Freedom fighters in Eastern DRC, Martin Kobler took a trip to visit the man he was getting ready to kill, in an internationally sanctioned act of pure madness, The Pious Major General Victor Byiringiro. In what is said to have been a very tense visit,that made some of the FDLR Security personnel nervous, as they believed that Martin Kobler could be trying to trap them into something, he surprised them by offering to come alone with no heavy security detail. His chopper landed in the village where he and the General had agreed to meet, and it was soon swarmed by crowds of little children, who were fascinated by this flying noisy thing, and the tall white man it brought to their village. Kobler proceeded to meed with the General, as usual, he uttered lots of threats which the General shrugged off and went on about his business of running his Free Nomadic Republic of Rwanda(I just made this last appellation up, don’t go nuts about it). When Kobler got out of the meeting place, the crowd of children had gotten even larger and they surrounded him, accompanying him all the way to the helicopter. Before he boarded the chopper, he turned around and asked one of General Byiringiro’s senior advisers if all of these were FDLR children, and the Adviser answered: “No!They are both Rwandese and Congolese children, they live here together. But what does it matter to you? Aren’t you planning on killing them all? Kobler left without saying a word.
So Kobler waited for the press to die down, and now he is after the children, their mothers and their vegetables.
This vegetable thing, caught my attention a few days ago when a story out of Kisangani transit camp showed photos of UN hired employees destroying vegetables, the refugees had planted in the camp to resist the starvation methods used against them by the UN, to force them back into Kagame’s sinister claws, so I started making inquiries into this refugee vegetable business. The answer I was given is so touching and so inspiring as to the spirit of resistance and resilience demonstrated by Hutu refugees as they have been chased around the jungles as if their humanity doesn’t count for a dime anymore.”Whenever we settle somewhere, we plant these” dodo, imbogeri, imbwija even some egg plants(intoryi)” One refugee told me.And yes I am talking about those intoryi that our mothers used to mix with red kidney beans to keep us going through rough times. Last time I saw these it was in Dayton, Ohio..Gee!! I wonder how they got there!!!!! Back to Kobler!! It only took almost a year for Martin Kobler’s goons to solve the mystery of the always shiny-sometimes fatty- little kids he was trying to starve to death in order to force their parents into the hands of the monsters they ran away from and a soon as they found out, they sprang into action: DESTROY THE VEGETABLES, EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM!!! The order came from above. Of course, to carry out this dirty business, Kobler called in his”let’s go mess with Hutu refugees” go to guy, who is none other than the always infamous and ready for any dirty business, Major Rodrigue of Benin. HE CAME, HE SAW THE VEGETABLES, HE CONQUERED THEM…well sort of. I am pretty sure some Hutu mom somewhere is hiding a good supply of seeds and the vegetables will grow again..somewhere!!! THE QUESTION WE ALL HAVE TO BE PREPARED TO ANSWER SOONER OR LATER,WILL COME WHEN ALL OF THESE KIDS DECIDE TO RISE UP AND HEAD EASTWARD WITH AK47 IN THEIR HANDS AND ONLY ONE QUESTION ON THEIR LIPS AND HERE IT IS: WHO THE HELL SENT A WHITE MAN TO PISS ON MY VEGETABLES?????
