Norbert Kisobele Nsontini, veteran: 'There are still a hundred of us living here in Kinshasa. Every time a veteran dies the funeral is a big event. All the medals are pinned to the deceased's suit. As long as our health permits, we meet here in our pub, 'Les Anciens Combatants'. Even though at our age it's not at all easy to get here. When we take the bus, people fortunately make room for us to sit down.' .
