DRC: Blogger Wants to Petition T.I.

Blogger Tony Katombe proposes (FR) on Prince du Fleuve du Congo that he and compatriots from the country and abroad petition Transparency International to “investigate the allegations of the implication of Louis Michel, William Lacy Swing, Aldo Ajello and other international officials in the illicit exploitation of mining resources in the Katanga, the Kivu and Kasai… The idea is to bring T.I. to … establish that the conception and orientation of this corrupted system is the making of these western gentlemen who act in the Congo as in a colonial outpost.”
