What is beyond imagination is that Congolese have given in to hopelessness and are content to be led by Joseph Kabila, a president with no sense of responsibility or leadership. Kimbuta shares the blame, I agree but the bucks stop at the president bcse he should be superintending every governing activity under his presidency. Can a reponsible president accept to live in a filthy slum like Kinshasa? Gombe isn't the whole Kinshasa and Kinshasa isn't Gombe alone....JoKa's reign is a Congo's continual nightmare of humiliation and shame.

As A. Gizenga quoteed the Chinese proverb. " If the head of the fish is rotten, the rest of the fish will stink".

One problem that we have in DRC is that we want the President to be everywhere & go to the lowest level of society to deal with problems such as roads that aren't well maintained or an authority that isn't doing his job.
Why is Kimbuta there? What's his job? Who chose Kimbuta? He's responsibility is Kinshasa nothing but Kinshasa. Whereas the president has to deal with the whole nation. Do you really think he should take time away to take Kimbuta with him, GR protecting him with Ak47s, launch rockets, fancy car and several cameras filming how he's unhappy and telling Kimbuta " You have to deal with this. It's dangerous for the population" so that the whole nation sees how Kabila takes time to lecture kimbuta about he's job? So, that people think, "Oh my, he cares about us. He's a responsible president"
The president is responsible for what happens on DRC soil but at a certain level, you can't blame the man for the failure of certain people.

Kimbuta was imposed on Kinshasa, not chosen. so did the rest of useless governors.

One cannot say, Kinshasa overwelmingly voted Bemba, but the governor became PPRD, yeah right

Lets not pretend like there transparency or freedom of choice or respect for any Laws in the country.

Its not magic why the so called constitution was drafted to get the provincial Governors to choose the Governors. why couldn't they let people decide who their governors will be? even with that. a PPRD would still lead Kinshasa even though people dislike that party with passion. In dictatorships there are no freedom or respect of Laws. what the president says, is order on the menu of the day.

Do you know what means: "The bucks stop at the president" ?
Do you know the scope of presidential responsibilities in a country? See, you and the likes may be the real Congo's problem!

Look at what happened at the Senat . PPRD presented their candidate but the senators preferred to vote for Kengo, who's clearly part of the opposition. Lately, in PO. MP presented their candidate but the deputes provinciaux voted for someone else. Same thing in Bas-Congo and Kasai. This just to say, why didn't Kabila and his crew use corruption for these elections as well?
What If Lea deputes believed Kimbuta was better than the others who were presented? Corruption is possible but there's also another possibility.

Let's continue this somewhere else?

The consequences:

Kinshasa: un éboulement de terre près du camp Mimoza fait deux morts - http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/radio...3/0aBYwL_W8xw/

Eboulement sur l'avenue du tourisme. Le manque de suivie. Triste consequences.

Why doesn't OVD just clear it as they are doing it? Instead of leaving it on the ground, what are those trucks for?
But normally, who's suppose to do that job?

Bonne question. A mon avis, la réponse est claire, c’est l’OVD qui devrait s’en occuper. Après tout, l’acronyme « OVD » signifie Office de Voirie et de Drainage. L’opération de drainage ne se limite pas qu’au curage ; l’évacuation de déchets devrait aussi être incluse dans l’opération. Dans le cas contraire, l’OVD devrait coordonner ses opérations avec la structure responsable de cette opération. Est-ce si difficile à faire ?
Par ailleurs, la médiocrité de certains journalistes congolais ne cessera de m’étonner. Pourquoi l’auteur de ce reportage ne s’est pas donné la peine de contacter les responsables de l’OVD pour leur poser la question essentielle de son reportage (qui est responsable de quoi?) et informer ainsi complètement les téléspectateurs au lieu de s’appesantir sur les avis des passants…

Offices des Voiries et drainages, says it all.
Tu connais nos journalistes. Mais surement que les responsables de l'OVD ne lui on pas accorder la parole? However, if it's the case he should let us know. He should include that in his reportage. Saying, they didn't want to answer. Not that hard, or is it?

OVD is responsible.
OVD supposed to make sure those drainage ways are completely covered and maintenance (make sure the drainage ways are always clear, especially during Rainy season) , supposed to be a monthly duty.

But like everything in this country, officials get posts they don't deserve. A goalkeeper is made to be a striker and a striker is made to a defender. LOL.

Not a bad idea. It's better than leaving it on the floor next to living areas and etc.
