Conflict Management by the Twere in the Mbosi Community (Congo-Brazzaville)

Obah Mesmin | Prof Luo Lianggong

Abstract: Otwere is an old institution that dealt with the justice of our fathers. It has existed it seems in all our tribes in the Congo before being supplanted by colonial or modern justice. It also existed among whites, Jews (Jephthah). But we are going to say here how the Mbochis of Alima had understood Otwere in their understanding and in their region. Established for justice, Otwere was the most respectable and respected, the most consistent, the most intangible, the most sacred ancestral institution ever encountered by the Mbochis in the land of Alima. I would like to make known, before defining it in itself, what characterized it, and then reveal the preconditions required to be a member of the institution, (Bishop B. Gassongo, 1979). If Otwere is an institution dealing with justice, then its members, the Twere, can only be law enforcement judges. Experience shows that wherever there is law, there are individuals who are supposed to break it. They are those who defy the established order or who do not want social organization. On the understanding that Otwere had not provided a framework for sentences because often favoring the resolution of conflicts by the repair of faults rather than by the punishment of the guilty, then the question of its structure arises that of the management of his men so that the cases of recidivism are non-existent This big question about the management of the city, also poses that of the qualities of the Twere on the carpet. Indeed, all these concerns about management policy precipitate, so far, researchers in Alima land to safeguard the gains that Otwere hides
