Rvd. Kutino Fernando, founder of Sauvons le Congo [Save the Congo], was recently taken from his church by policemen and his whereabouts are unknown, says (Fr) Tony Katombe at Le Blog du Congolais. The blogger is skeptical that Kutino was stocking weapons in his church or inciting violence as alleged by authorities. He believes that the PPRD just unknowingly made a leader out of the detained Pastor. “[Ruling Party] PPRD is starting to seriously scare us with its use of the police and many are asking how the party will react if its candidate loses the presidential election.”
