A Rwandan parent who tried to accompany her child to school in Goma said that despite meetings with authorities on the issue ,no solution was reached. “Our children have always studied in Congo, because it is cheaper.
Will I get here a French system school for my child who is in their fifth year at secondary school? No,” she told the BBC. Cecile Ahaji, 19, had similar concerns: “They want us to study here in Rwanda, but I cannot study here because I have never studied in the English system, I have always been studying in Congo.”
Eighteen-year-old Ineza Tania was upset that her Congolese counterparts were able to come over to Rwanda: “Does Ebola target only Rwandans? So, are the Congolese who are allowed to cross not going to bring it to us? We live together!” More than 2,000 people have died since the Ebola outbreak began in eastern DR Congo in August last year.
