DRC: Journalist Shot

According to (Fr) Le Blog du Congolais: “Bapuwa Mwamba, a noteworthy journalist at “Le Phare”(…) was recently grabbed from his family's affections as well as from freedom fighters in the night of the 7 to the 8th of July by a commando that shot him at close range. (…) Either we let [those who have decided to lead the Congo] soil the country and we let them live or we fight for our freedom, our dignity and our sovereignty and we get killed.”
