DRC INVESTIGATES ARMY CHIEF’S DEATH
Written by thereachfm on March 2, 2020
The army in the Democratic Republic of Congo is investigating the death of its head of intelligence.
Delphin Kahimbi was found dead at his home in the capital, Kinshasa, on Friday, the day he was meant to appear before the country’s Security Council.
He was to answer charges that he was involved in a plot to destabilise President Félix Tshisekedi.
Gen Kahimbi was on an EU sanctions list for alleged human rights violations and hindering the democratic process.
Tshisekedi took over from Joseph Kabila in January last year, the first peaceful transfer of power in the country in nearly 60 years – though many disputed the election result.
