I’ve been avoiding this scumbag-he is the highest government official in the reserve.  I truly believe he would allow people to do anything they want in the reserve as long as he got paid.  He greets me with his Simon Legree look, rubbing his hands together.  I ask him why he is allowing six soldiers to hunt elephant in the reserve.  I ask him why he is not doing his job.  He gives some answer about how WCS (American NGO) has to mobilize people from Kinshasa to stop this even though it is clearly his job to do so… this government can’t protect it’s own resources. I’m disgusted with this guy and I say “thank you very much… I will let you and Paluku talk.”  As I shake his hand he screams “Ma Cadeaux, Ma Cadeaux…” Screaming for a bribe as I walk in disgust out of his camp… Unbelievable… Randy Olson
