history of the Democratic Republic of Congo where Banyamulenge, specifically
the “military”, had gained momentum and widely discussed in literature and
Medias. It recapitulates key incidents in which commanders have seemingly been
targeted and killed under unclear circumstances. The monograph tries to go
behind the scene to understand what happened and why were they specifically
targeted. Therefore, the book tends to question this momentum and see it
rather as a myth that led to extinction of innocent soldiers and commanders.
Nonetheless, the discussion in this book aims at keeping these stories alive;
thus, unveiling the commitment of young people who fell on the battlefi eld
while claiming their rights. These young people have been challenged by
political loopholes within the 'Elite Class'.
