The Democratic Republic of Congo Head of State Félix Tshisekedi does not receive a good mark from Amnesty International, which accuses him of not doing enough to bring justice to the victims of the repression that characterised the various pre-election demonstrations.
The pre-electoral crisis in the country in January 2015 and December 2016 caused loss of life in the camp of demonstrators. Rossy Mukendi, Rose Kapangala are ones of those who have been shooted, should be investigated to shed light on the exact circumstances of these killings.
More than 15 months after his inauguration, no steps have been taken to seek to uncover the truth about the case and bring justice to the victims, despite the candidate for the Cap pour le Changement having pledged during his election campaign to do so once he is sworn in as head of state.
President Tshisekedi “has done nothing to investigate the deaths of at least 320 people killed during protests between 2015 and 2018,” Amnesty International said in a report released on Tuesday.
