Summary

Evariste: doctor, drafted politician, political refugee, father, farmer and community worker. 

He once worshiped his ancestors and turned to witchcraft for healing. He has had multiple wives, many children and countless grandchildren. A man who has seen brutality inflicted upon the innocent and corrupt men rise to power, yet walked true to his beliefs. His life was transformed when he discovered God and he now preaches at every turn.  Today he is in his eighties, but he is not above climbing onto the back of a motorbike for his community development work. He is determined that his beloved nation will reach its potential.

In this gripping biography, Shannon Buchbach captures all the fascinating intrigue of Evariste’s life and the greater happenings in the Democratic Republic of Congo whilst remaining true to the tale’s personal heartbeat.  

Author proceeds go back to the people of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
