The Congolese SAPE, or Elegant People of Congo (20 pics)

Posted in Pictures   13 Nov 2009   / 19633 views

We can regularly hear about Congo, but in general, it’s rather sad stories than for something else.
So, to change, we’ll talk about something I never heard about before today: SAPE!
SAPE: “La Société des Ambianceurs et Personnes Elégantes”, or the society of atmosphere setters and elegant people.

You can see people of SAPE everywhere in Congo and it’s easy to recognize them because they have one important rule – a man has to be elegant! Though, it’s not all about elegance, a true member of the SAPE is a gentleman and a pacifist.
So, among people dressed simply, you can see guys wearing $1000 suits!
They consider themselves to be artists and are respected and admired by the whole community.
I think it’s weird, but again, to each his own…

I think more people should make an open, obvious choice about their lives... the fact that these men are devoted to PEACE, as well as making themselves very, very visible in a place like the Congo, is absolutely AWESOME...

One would think that they would be targets... I hope they are not, and I truly hope that they live happy lives...

Peace...

Kudos to all these gentlemen. They all look terrific. Better still, they stand for decency. Great role models for the very young.

Knowing others is intelligence, knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power.
