Iyanga Yafe (16) is a former child soldier recruited by the Congolese Rally for Democracy (RCD) rebel forces during the second Congo war.  His parents and brother were shot dead by soldiers as they fled their village down the Congo River. It was later that he discovered that it was the RCD that had killed his family.  Iyanga is a member of Zanga-Zanga, a local organisation set up to help child soldiers by recruiting them to work in rebuilding the community, in exchange for food and somewhere to sleep..
