It rains...

There’s a way of saying in Italy ‘’It rains! What a rip-off government’’…but we should at least have one here in CAR
Theoretically there is one, but in reality anything goes yet. After the coup d’état, The self-made president and the prime minister put together a new government, with ministers and stuff…however the real situation across the country, after a month, still is chaotic and tragic. Looting, shooting and violence keep happening all over as it happens in the capital as well.
Friday at 11.40 pm the phone rang. Father Marco told me rebels came back to Yole seminar, where they have 80 kids. Once more they experienced terror, shootings, plundering and menace….thankfully nobody was hurt or worse, killed.
Here in Bozoum they killed a teacher this week. Rebels went to a village looking for a car that had been hidden by a merchant. They came, took him, tied and beaten him up to get information about the car. Finally they shot him. That same day they were up and down the main road with that very car.
There is no justification for all this. Only cruelty and incompetence of people in charge, without taking any responsibility for it
As Gandhi said: ’The things that will destroy us are: politics without principle; pleasure without conscience; wealth without work; knowledge without character; business without morality; science without humanity; and worship without sacrifice.’’
