BreakingNews @en di

The Congolese political microcosm has been hit by a scandal the last weekend, after the New York Times article which charged  the national deputy Clément Kanku, on the grounds that it would be involved in  the violence  in Grand Kasaï for nine months. While reaffirming the implication of this ex-secretary in the massacres which affected  his province of origin, his newspaper has just  accused Monusco of having showed a negligence, in the protection of two UN state employees murdered in Kasaï Central. According to The New York Times, Monusco would not have taken the security measures required before the travel of two investigators towards a part of the Republic where the insecurity was generalized,  not only because of the attacks of the militiamen Kamuina Nsapu, but also in the actions of Congolese reprisals of armed forces, on the background of massive violations of the rights of man. The newspaper argues that Zaïda Catalan and Michaël Sharp would not have received the useful information on the real security situation which prevailed over the ground, Monusco having let them venture into a nameless jungle with as guide a single interpreter.
