Abstract:The city of Lubumbashi is plagued by insecurity whose distant origins go back more to the advent of the predatory power of marshal mobutu. the decline of the entire state, gendarme and providence, did not prevent delinquents from locking a six-month-old baby in a freezer; at the beginning of april 2019. politicians' speeches invite populations to take care of their selves. this reflection aims to explain the different sources and names of insecurity, and to give their modus operandis. in a state suffering from underdevelopment, the constitutionalization of mistakes, the misunderstanding of western democracy and the privatization of security means, goods and services are all detours in the management of public affairs. these detours generate insecurity in its various forms. to achieve this, the authorities are invited to conceive public policies for fighting against insecurity. among the remedies put out in this paper, it is important, among others things, to ensure the traceability of authors and databases in order to have a knowledge of dangerous persons "put on file s" by the police. there is also a need to be able to expand police power in new neighbourhoods related to the expansion of the city. this means concretely building new police stations in the new municipalities and districts to approach the police administration near citizens; and above all to contain threats and insecurity before they leave their dens. by providing security guards with the most efficient technical, financial and locomotion resources, the ability to respond to emergencies will be improved. judicial means play an important role in the fight against urban insecurity. they consist, first, in the application of the death penalty, which must be re-established, and second, in the charge of human rights defenders who have never condemned the perpetrators, but rather the public authorities.
