In these territories, the ideology and utopia used by the current “Mai Mai” movements beyond only seem to extend armed groups. They develop in the form of beliefs and practices that generate increasing adherence among the civilian population. A study of the sayings and doings of combatants and their sympathizers shows that the motives behin of a global perspective of quest for meaning. T his research, b d this membership are part ased on the analysis of certain behaviors, actions, beliefs, practices, rites of Mai Mai combatants, intends to show that, beyond nationalist, ethnic, tribalist, econo mic or political motivations, current presents itself as a believe wh ich articulates “maimaisme” political quests and religious aspirations. politiconiIt is a religious imaginary which now occupies a place in the "market of beliefs" of the territories of Be Lubero.
