Congo Brazzaville : Ephemeral boutique owners

Whenever the mistresses of corrupt barons of the ruling PCT are back from their trips in Paris or Dubai, they make an effort to open a fashion boutique to sell dresses and other products to their friends who have not made the journey or who don’t own stores. It explains partly why, besides night clubs and other drinking spots, boutiques selling dresses from China, Dubai and Paris are common sites in Brazzaville and Point Noire. The most disappointing aspect is that, those boutiques opened by those young girls and women, who are mistresses of corrupt barons of the ruling PCT are that, their investments more often lost making. Those that last for more than a year survive only because they are subsidized by their old powerful sugar daddies who are members of the political bureau or central committee of the ruling party. And when the relationship flatters, as it most often happens or when the old sugar daddy loses his position within the system, the young woman also goes into oblivion, until she is able to make another catch. The other sad observation that I have made with girls and women of Brazzaville and Point Noire is that, they are professional liars and in order to maintain their superficial rank in the society, they have more than one partner and almost all within the same circle. Hence there is high and bewildering promiscuity and also soaring spread of sexually transmissible disease and HIV/AIDS.

Not romantic

The other pitiable aspect with the young girls/women from or of Brazzaville and Point Noire is that, they are not romantic. They are aggressive and think that, investing massively in their appearances and being excellent in bed is sufficient to keep their vacillating old powerful men. Unfortunately for them, they have discovered to their chagrin that, being excellent in bed or investing in their appearances is not enough, for whenever they are caught in a love triangle with girls from the DRC, their eternal rivals, they  have almost always lost. The DRC girls/women do always defeat Congo Brazzaville girls and women, because they are sometimes not only very beautiful, sensual, they are also above all, calm, hard working and intelligent, qualities that are alien to most girls and women from Brazzaville and Pointe Noire.
