Ok, I am going to switch into Dwight Schrute mode here for a second…
FACT: There are lots of soldiers here in North and South Kivu.
FACT: Unless I want to pay a hefty bribe or get the giblets beaten out of me, I do not take pictures of soldiers.
However, the BBC has an excellent slideshow that shows Mai Mai soldiers and victims of the war in Eastern Congo. This slideshow can be found here.
So, now you know what I see strutting down the street every day. Also, you get a feel for how vulnerable the civilian population is to these hombres armados.
