Meanwhile, a UN spokesman said though the UN had not observed any firing into Rwanda by the Congolese Army, UN peacekeepers in eastern Congo had witnessed M23 rebels firing into Rwandan territory over the past week.

    Artist: Yoruba Andabo Album: Rumba En La Habana Con... Track: Congo This name is nothing more than the conjugation of two words from African dialects. Yoruba is the name given to an extensive territory in southern Africa, inhabited by several nations and consequently their cultures. The word Andabo, in Carabalí language, means: friend, follower, admirer. Therefore, "Yoruba Andabo", seeks to be something like "the friends, the admirers and followers of the yoruba lands and their cultures." This group had its genesis in the Havana Docks where, in 1961, a group of workers met and created what was known then as "Guaguancó Marítimo Portuario." When they became professional, the group was re-baptized "YORUBA ANDABO" when, in 1986, they started working in a series of activities for and ...

Violence is raging on in the Kasai region in the country's southwest. The violence erupted last August after government forces killed a tribal leader who had defied the government of President Joseph Kabila. The Kamwina Nsapu militia then took up arms and began a bloody struggle against the government. The militia fighters are mainly made up of Luba people, an ethnic group living in the Kasai region. They started a rebellion against the central government and called for the expulsion of government forces from the region.

    The US has been seeking to disrupt development of the second access/terminal point of the Northern Transoceanic African Route by disabling the Congo-Ocean Railway between Brazzaville and Pointe-Noire. Analyst Gearoid O’Colmain has done an excellent job raising awareness about the incipient Color Revolution that the US tried unsuccessfully to foster in the Republic of Congo in pursuit of this objective. Details of the plot can be found in his writing. Briefly, the US and France (the latter the Republic of Congo’s former colonial master) sought to foment unrest in the Republic of Congo in order to trigger a return to the country’s 1990s-era civil war. This scheme was eventually thwarted by the Republic of Congo government. However whilst it was underway the Western aligned media spent m...

The word Andabo, in Carabalí language, means: friend, follower, admirer. Therefore, "Yoruba Andabo", seeks to be something like "the friends, the admirers and followers of the yoruba lands and their cultures." This group had its genesis in the Havana Docks where, in 1961, a group of workers met and created what was known then as "Guaguancó Marítimo Portuario." When they became professional, the group was re-baptized "YORUBA ANDABO" when, in 1986, they started working in a series of activities for and with the Union of Cuban Writers and Artists (UNEAC). These activities were organized by Cuban poet Eloy "The Ambia" Machado, who put the group in contact with singer and composer Pablo Milanés, who invited them to participate in the celebrations for the 25th Anniversary of the record company EGREM. From that moment on they started carrying out important work with folk singer Merceditas Valdés. In 1994, as they stepped into a new working stage, they adopted the name Folkloric Company YORUBA ANDABO. The company is made up of seventeen artists, including singers, percussionists and dancers, and professionally performs the most important genres of both religious and profane music within the Africans roots of Cuban culture. This work includes: • Congo Cycle where they do the three types of Palo, Makuta and Yuca singing, with instruments such as the Mula, Cachimbo and Caja drums, including the use of the Catá and the Aggogo. • Yoruba Cycle ranging from singings and prayers, working with the Bata drums orchestra and the Chequeré, to the profane type of "Bembé" or "Güiro", all of them with the Oricha dances such as: Elegguá, Oggún, Obbatalá, Yemayá, Babalú, Changó and Oyá. • Abakuá Cycle including the liturgical singing and prayers, with the complex execution of the Tankomo drums and the colorful dances of the Iremes or "little devils", symbolizing the spirit of the dead. • The Rumba Cycle with this cycle YORUBA ANDABO specializes in rescuing the traditional rhythms as the Yambú, the Guaguancó, and the Columbia, performing them with the original instruments. The company also offers workshops and seminars on Folkloric Percussion, Folk Dances and singing, Popular Percussion and Popular Dances. These educational activities are carried out by well known specialists who are members of our staff.
YORUBA ANDABO has performed on important national and international stages, such as the Mella, Karl Marx, América, Amadeo Roldán and Nacional Theaters; and the Tropicana, Capri, Parisién and Copa Room Night Clubs in Cuba, the Colón Theater in Colombia, the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, ad the Aaron David Hall in New York City; they have participated in such important events as the Rumba Festivals, The Percussion Festivals (PERCUBA) and Golden Boleros in the island, the World of Music and Dance (WOMAD) in Canada, The International Arts Festival of Costa Rica, and the 15th Annual Expression International Festival in the United States, in the Tajin Summit 2001 Festival in Veracruz and in the 8th International Afro Caribbean Festival.

These are the headlines we are tracking for you in this episode of On the News Line: Congo in crisis The Democratic Republic of Congo is in crisis. Violence is raging on in the Kasai region in the country's southwest. The violence erupted last August after government forces killed a tribal leader who had defied the government of President Joseph Kabila. The Kamwina Nsapu militia then took up arms and began a bloody struggle against the government. The militia fighters are mainly made up of Luba people, an ethnic group living in the Kasai region. They started a rebellion against the central government and called for the expulsion of government forces from the region. The violence has sparked fears of a wider ethnic conflict in the region, which is rife with ethnic rivalry over rich mineral resources. Sino-Indian tensions Tensions between china and India are once again in the spotlight with the two sides digging their heels in over the Doklam region territorial dispute. To further compound the situation, China has held live fire drills near the disputed border region in the Himalayas. The exercises come after Beijing stepped up its warnings to Indian troops to get out of Doklam. Indian troops entered the region in June after New Delhi's ally, Bhutan, complained that a Chinese military construction group was building a road inside Bhutan's territory. Beijing says the border dispute has nothing to do with India. But New Delhi believes any construction would have serious security implications for India. New Delhi and Beijing are members of BRICS group of nations which also include Russia, Brazil and South Africa. But there has been no effort by the developing economies to resolve the dispute between china and India.

The civilian population, which reportedly suffered grave abuses under the rebels, poured into the streets to welcome the soldiers, running alongside their tanks. Over the weekend, Congolese soldiers took back Kiwanja, Rutshuru, Buhumba and Kibumba in the eastern region of the DRC. The soldiers faced little to no resistance. Of the five Rumangabo is the most important militarily as it is home to one of the largest military camps in the DRC's troubled east. The Congolese army abandoned their posts in the eastern DRC and fled in the face of an advancing rebel army just over a year ago. The M23 rebels are one of many military factions fighting for control in the country's volatile east. At first ignored, the M23 rebels were buoyed by what a United Nations panel of experts tasked with investigating the conflict said were arms, money and troops from neighbouring Rwanda, the DRC's smaller but militarily powerful neighbour. Fighting between the two sides has flared and ebbed throughout the past year, each time ending with stalled peace talks hosted in Kampala, the capital of neighbouring Uganda. *** A delegation of politicians and generals visited the northern town of Rutshuru in the Democratic Republic of Congo on November 9th to show the government had wrested back control from M23 rebel fighters. Rutshuru, 60 kilometres (37 miles) from the capital Goma, was controlled by the M23 from April 2012 until last week when they were driven out by a quick national army advance with logistical and fire-support from the United Nations. After soldiers marched into the town on Saturday, people gathered together outside and were told to stay calm, not to attack former collaborators of the M23 rebels, but to help authorities seek out those responsible for crimes during the occupation. Later people sang and played music and there was beer available, but the generals had a serious message to convey, issuing a warning to armed groups that they would not be tolerated. *** He said around 40 people were killed in the exchange of fire, including 16 at the military base, 16 at the airport and eight at the TV station.

Analyst Gearoid O’Colmain has done an excellent job raising awareness about the incipient Color Revolution that the US tried unsuccessfully to foster in the Republic of Congo in pursuit of this objective. Details of the plot can be found in his writing. Briefly, the US and France (the latter the Republic of Congo’s former colonial master) sought to foment unrest in the Republic of Congo in order to trigger a return to the country’s 1990s-era civil war. This scheme was eventually thwarted by the Republic of Congo government. However whilst it was underway the Western aligned media spent months presenting the Republic of the Congo as Africa’s latest conflict hotspot. The strategic objective was not just to replace President Nguesso with a pliant Western puppet. It was to drive Chinese influence out of the country and to render it impossible for China to use the Republic of Congo’s territory as a complementary alternative to the Kinshasa-Matadi railway for the Northern Transoceanic African Route. If the plot had succeeded the whole Northern Transoceanic African Route would have become completely dependent on the maintenance of stability in Kinshasa. Given the long history of instability in the Congo and in Kinshasa and the strong potential for a Western inspired Colour Revolution there, that would have reduced the prospects of the whole project dramatically.

September 2009 Making mobile phones uses minerals only available from Congo's war zone. Is our appetite for the latest electronic gadgets fuelling exploitation in the Congoeven threatening the survival of central Africas magnificent gorillas? On the inside of many devices like mobile phones and laptops, the mineral, Coltan, has made our gadgets smaller and more complex. In the mineral-rich Congo, armed militia watch over the children digging it from the ground. The government only pretends to help us says one miner, who pays a government official just to work. The Congo is a shifting sands of various militia, the largest of which is the Congolese state itself explains an expert on blood minerals. Yet the miners depend on the little they get from mining to survive. Electronic giants like Apple now claim they will no longer use Coltan from this area but experts are convinced the militias will smuggle it onto the market regardless. For local miners, the move away from African minerals is just another way of penalising Africans. Coltan fuels a conflict, which has seen national parks become war zones, gorillas killed for meat and hundreds of houses set on fire in turf wars over mineral territory. Yet it also feeds 400,000 petty traders. Why did it take a mobile phone to make us appreciate the injustice in the Congo? Produced by ABC Australia, distributed by Journeyman Pictures

The Mokele Mbembe are living dinosaurs of the Congo River. Physical evidence of the sauropod confirms its home territory cuts a swath across the African republic of Congo, which is straddled by the deepest river in the world, with a depth reaching 750 feet. The survivor of the age of dinosaurs was given its name by the locals, more than 250 years ago. As recently as 2012 organized parties have been traveling to Africa to locate and photograph a living dinosaur resembling a Brontosaurus. The Newmac Expedition was funded by Kickstarter in the amount of 29 thousand dollars, and of the contingent of six young men, the oldest member was 28 years old. According to the Florida Sun-Sentinel, a few days after their arrival in the Congo, the party of Americans was swallowed by the jungle, never to return. For hundreds of years tales of the gargantuan Mokele Mbembe have been passed from one generation to the next, by the local Bantu people. The name of the creature translates as, "one who stops the flow of the river". The Bantu describe it as forty feet in length, with a long neck and a large pot-belly. Although it is a herbivore and eats only foliage, it is very territorial and will gladly fight any hippopotamus or rhinocerous caught trespassing on its feeding grounds. Sightings of the sauropod by Europeans begin in 1776, when a French missionary to the region, Levi Bonaventure, stumbled upon the gigantic footprints that are characteristic of Mokele Mbembe, which are three feet in diameter... not including the impression of its claws. The beast was notorious for killing hippopotami, and it lived in caves along the river Congo. The German surveyor of Cameroon, Freiherr von Stein, wrote an account in 1913 of an animal larger than an elephant with smooth gray skin, a protracted flexible neck and a long, muscular tail, like the tail of an alligator. If a canoe approached it too nearly, the Mokele Mbembe would attack the vessel, drowning the crew... but it would not eat the bodies. Its diet was entirely vegetable. In 1932 Cryptozoologist Ivan T. Sanderson and his African guides found tracks along one bank of the Congo River, consisting of a large footprint with three claws. They heard a bellowing roar from a nearby swamp, with more volume than the trumpet of an elephant. This was followed by the sharp report of a firearm in the distance, which Sanderson believed to be from another party, hunting big game. Then they heard a sound like a moving train, crashing through the brush. The beast erupted from the jungle some distance downriver, and fell into the water. Its head alone, was as big as a hippopotamus. The water swallowed it whole. In Sanderson's opinion, the creature had been wounded. The Nugent expedition of 1985 interviewed local inhabitants, who were shown pictures of animal life, both modern and prehistoric. In reponse to the question, what does the Mokele Mbembe look like, they invariably identified the same image, a picture of a Brontosaurus. The expedition leader Rory Nugent spotted an anomaly moving down the middle of the river. He ran to launch his boat but was prevented from leaving shore. The locals ordered him at gunpoint not to go near the behemoth. The Congolese told him, "You may not approach, but if it so chooses, it may approach you." There is physical evidence associated with the hunt for Mokele Mbembe. The Regusters expedition of '81 returned with sound recordings of a "low windy roar increasing to a deep throated blast". In '92 members of a Japanese documentary crew were filming B-roll aerial footage from a small plane, when the camera person captured an object creating a considerable wake in the slowly moving waters below. She filmed for 15 seconds before the thing submerged. In 2006 the Milt Marcy Expedition returned from Cameroon with a plaster cast of a Mokèlé-mbèmbé footprint, and in 2009 a History Channel team found the empty lair of the monster in one bend of the Congo River, an underground cave with air vents. The team also recorded sonar readings of a very long, very large serpentine shape, underwater. living ,living of the congo, ,-,living ,sauropod,congo , caught on camera, caught on tape, documentary,real ,sauropods,cryptozoology,monsters,monsterquest, documentary films, documentaries, films, hunt, hunter,dino hunter, jurassic park License links may all be found at https://creativecommons.org

Subscribe to France 24 now : http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN For more than a year and a half, a series of massacres - which have never been claimed - have been committed in the Beni region in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. More than 700 people have died in attacks on civilians in the region neighbouring Uganda, according to the United Nations. The Congolese army regularly announces military operations against the Ugandan Islamist rebels of the ADF (Allied Democratic Forces), but the rebels have never been completely expelled from the territory. The ADF has been active in DRC for more than two decades and stands accused of a litany of human rights abuses, as well as being involved with criminal networks funded by kidnappings and smuggling. The Congolese army is also supported by 3,000 MONUSCO troops, the UN's largest mission in the world. Our reporters went to investigate these brutal mass killings in eastern DR Congo. Our team looked at what is preventing the armed forces from protecting Beni’s citizens. Is there collusion between the Congolese army and the rebels? Why have UN forces failed in their mission to protect civilians? Warning – graphic content in this video.
