as reported from Kinshasa, Kamanda wa Kamanda Muzembe
The images shocked the public and not just in the Democratic Republic of Congo. High school students were filmed in full intercourse wearing their blue and white uniform.
“A shock” Étienne Musampa, a parent in her sixties, observes the effects of social networks: “The reality is that these children have an experience richer than ours, with an abundance of pornographic films, the environment we live in… The first reaction was a shock, but afterwards I realized that no, you have to understand them given the environment we live in. ”
Étienne Musampa blames society: “It happens. We live in a world as it is and we must accept it. It is the fruit of our society. This is what we have been producing for so many years, this is what we have given our children. ”
According to Albert Fabrice Puela, Minister for Human Rights, quoted by Digitalcongo.net, the five high school students were excluded from their establishment, but were not banned from the education system, as announced on some social networks.
