MONUSCO REALITES #1
On June 30th, 2010, the 50th Anniversary of Congolese Independence, MONUC became MONUSCO, and there was a handover from SRSG Alan Doss to SRSG Roger Meece, former US Ambassador to the DRC. UN SG Ban Ki Moon came over for the ceremonies, and popular former SRSG William Lacy Swing was also in attendance. We decided to make this edition a farewell to SRSG Doss, with whom we had not had an easy relationship, but I like to think he eventually learned to trust us as professionals. Certainly, in this edition, Horeb did a heroic job of following Mr. Doss around the DRC with Producer Carlo Ontal shooting, and Mr. Doss finally gave us a more personal interview on the shores of Lake Kivu.
