Uprising After Murder of Student by Police in Congo

A student from the University of Kinshasa was killed Saturday July 26 in Kinshasa by a policeman who reproached him for not carrying a mask during the recording of a video ordered as part of a practical work. The student who was accompanied by a dozen colleagues and a teacher received two bullets.

The students barricaded roads, burned tires while others threw stones at the police. The police office near the university was burned on Saturday as the shooter fled leaving behind his weapon and his outfit. Students still attempted to demonstrate Monday, but the police used the kulunas, gangs of popular neighborhoods related to police networks.
