Cedric Kalonji writes about the tragic shooting death of Didace Namujimbo [1] [Fr], the second Radio Okapi [2] journalist to be murdered in Bukavu: “After learning this news, I was torn between pain, sadness and anger.  I asked myself how a democracy can last in a country so visibly allergic to independent, professional journalists.  Must we leave Congo only in the hands of the strong men, those who are armed?”
