1. National Unity
DR Congo comprises of 11 different regions. Each one of them is capable of adding value and contributing to the building and promoting Congolese people in general and the province in particular. The regional interaction and collaboration are a major factor in resolving our differences and tackling the problem effectively. We need to turn our weaknesses into strengths and our threats into substantial opportunities for promoting social cohesion and create an environment where the people will thrive and prosper. We shouldn’t let our provincial boundaries to segment and marginalize others. True patriotism facilitates Unity. Our regional loyalty and devotion should be channeled to the interests of our nation.
A land of many tribes. Our key challenge is to harmonize the cultural tribal differences between ourselves. Yes tribal boundaries are part of Congo’s strength but without any co-operative interconnection this will remain one of Congo’s fundamental weaknesses. It is time to bury the past and rise to the new future – By building a society in which there is a common vision and sense of belonging by all tribes, where diversity is appreciated and valued, and in which strong and positive relationships across tribes exist and continue to be developed.
A land of abundance and various opportunities. Therefore we should all serve the common good and deal with each other in genuine manner, and accept responsibility and obligation to care for the welfare of each other and the community for the greater benefit of all Congolese.
National pride under one banner. We must commit ourselves to renewing our Congolese patriotic spirit for love of our beloved country and the optimism of our forefathers for a renaissance of DR Congo. Our national spirit and desire should contribute for the advancement and common interests of our beloved nation and other partners, allies and neighboring nations.
In a democratic society, people who have different opinions can, respectfully agree to disagree in a mature adult manner without seen as a threat to each other. All Congolese people have equal value, deserve equal respect, and should be given equal opportunity to build and promote our native country. We must set high moral standards to strengthen the moral fabric of the Congolese society.
A land of multicultural. All Congolese, regardless of ethnicity, gender, learned abilities and religion must share certain fundamental rights that derive from the facts that they are human beings and deserve to be treated with dignity. We must invest in the Congolese people by maintaining democratic institutions and practices, and promoting human decency and dignity in our Society for mutual interest. We must restore the dignity of individuals in our community.

The Congolese people must unite first, because there is strength in unity. Martin Luther King said:”Unity is the great need of the hour, and if we are united we can get many of the things that we not only desire but which we justly deserve.” Together we stand and divided we will fall like a rootless tree.
