New Atrocities in the Congo: Male Rape “Rising Sharply”
The eastern Congo has been described as a “reservoir of atrocities” and the “rape capital of the world.” Now, as joint military operations escalate between Rwanda and Congo to stamp out the warring militias along the border, the New York Times reports armed and murderous militias are raping male villagers.
Mitima Mohigirwa is seen above. He was gang raped by five soldiers in 2004 and says his father was “so ashamed” that he left him after the assault.
To paraphrase a recent line by a certain Blackamazonian blogger: your rape culture is not my rape culture.
