  • The Congo Dandies: living in poverty and spending a fortune to look like a million dollars

    “La Sape” is a unique movement based in Congo that unites fashion-conscious men who are ready to splurge money they don’t really have on designer clothes. Dressing in stark contrast with their surroundings, these elegant ambiance-makers become true local celebrities… but this fame comes at a price. The Republic of the Congo in Central Africa can’t boast of high standards of living. Yet, there are men here who are prepared to spend a fortune on designer suits. They call themselves “sapeurs” – members of the “La Sape” movement. “La Sape” comes from French and stands for “The Society of Ambiance-Makers and Elegant People”. For its adherents, it’s all about style and elegance, the right combination of colours and textures, brand-names and the highest quality materials. They derive true joy fr...

“La Sape” is a unique movement based in Congo that unites fashion-conscious men who are ready to splurge money they don’t really have on designer clothes. Dressing in stark contrast with their surroundings, these elegant ambiance-makers become true local celebrities… but this fame comes at a price. The Republic of the Congo in Central Africa can’t boast of high standards of living. Yet, there are men here who are prepared to spend a fortune on designer suits. They call themselves “sapeurs” – members of the “La Sape” movement. “La Sape” comes from French and stands for “The Society of Ambiance-Makers and Elegant People”. For its adherents, it’s all about style and elegance, the right combination of colours and textures, brand-names and the highest quality materials. They derive true joy from showing off their attire on the streets of Brazzaville – the country’s capital and the centre of the “La Sape” movement. Walking down dusty streets lined with clay houses, they turn heads and feel like kings. And there’s no price they won’t pay for this. In fact, behind the image of success these dandies project, there are often stories of significant financial troubles caused by their extravagant hobby. To afford the price tag of their designer clothes, “sapeurs” have to save, borrow and even steal money, sometimes bringing ruin to their families. But even the grim consequences of their indulgent dressing habits often don’t stop “sapeurs” from spending money they don’t really have. They are in constant competition with each other and investing in their image is more important to them than improving their living conditions. Dressing smartly becomes a true addiction that is very hard to conquer. However, some “sapeurs” do strive to find a balance between looking chic and being reasonable with their spending. They insist that the “La Sape” movement isn’t about designer suits but rather developing impeccable taste. They make an emphasis on learning to dress well but within one’s means. This way, style and elegance will demand fewer sacrifices from their devotees and will be accessible to more sophisticated men.

Woman carrying belongings on her head fleeing fighting in area 11. Wide of family packing belongings and preparing to leave STORYLINE: The Democratic Republic of Congo's M23 rebels defied a deadline imposed by neighbouring nations on Tuesday, saying they would stay in the crucial city of Goma and fight the Congolese army to hold it. A Congolese military spokesman called it "a declaration of war" and said the army would resume combat, although he declined to say when. Highlighting the volatility of the situation, a different rebel group based in DR Congo, known as the FDLR, crossed into neighbouring Rwanda and attacked Rwandan army positions, according to villagers, eyewitnesses and a Rwandan military spokesman. It raised the possibility that DR Congo was directly retaliating against Rwanda, its much-smaller but more affluent neighbour, which has twice gone to war with DR Congo and which is now believed to be directing the M23 rebellion. Meanwhile, fighting erupted about 30 kilometres (18 miles) north of Goma, in Kibumba, near the Rwandan border, at around 5 am (0300 GMT), according to an M23 officer and local residents. Hours later, Associated Press journalists saw rebels believed to be with FDLR, a group that is believed to have received financial support from DR Congo, retreating back into DR Congo from the border. About a hundred M23 fighters were pursuing the fighters from the FDLR, the French acronym for the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda. Speaking in Goma on Tuesday, M23 president Jean-Marie Runiga said the rebels would not leave the city of one (m) million which they seized a week ago. The deadline imposed by the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region for the rebels to depart was midnight on Monday. Runiga said that the M23 now has a thousand tonnes of arms and ammunition, including heavy artillery, abandoned by the fleeing Congolese army. Six flatbed trucks carrying crates of ammunition were seen on Tuesday being driven by M23 soldiers north of Goma. At the same time, Runiga said the rebels would like to negotiate with the Congolese government. In April, when the rebellion began, the group initially said they wanted to revisit the 23 March 2009 peace accord which paved the way for the fighters to join the Congolese military. The group initially claimed that DR Congo had not held up its end of the bargain, failing to provide the fighters with adequate pay and proper equipment. DR Congo has already said that they are willing to negotiate with M23 on the basis of the 2009 peace accord, but Runiga said on Tuesday that they no longer want to talk about only that. He said that for the armed group to leave Goma, DR Congo is going to have to agree to a new set of conditions. Runiga addressed reporters in the centre of Goma, almost 12 hours after the midnight deadline for their retreat had passed. The M23 was created nearly eight months ago by former rebels who joined, and then defected from the Congolese army. Both the M23 and the FDLR rebel groups have their origins in the scars left by Rwanda's 1994 genocide.
