Question of the Day
Politician’s slaying could spark violence
KINSHASA — The United Nations condemned the killing of a prominent local politician in Democratic Republic of Congo, saying it could increase instability and stymie attempts to bring peace to volatile North Kivu province.
The body of Floribert Bwana Chui Bin Kositi, provincial secretary of the Congolese Rally for Democracy, was found in the North Kivu capital, Goma, Monday. He had been missing since Saturday and local authorities said he had been strangled.
Mr. Chui Bin Kositi’s party grew out of a Rwandan-backed rebel movement that occupied North Kivu and much of eastern Congo during a 1998-2003 war that killed an estimated 4 million people.
Disgraced ex-leader allowed treatment
LUSAKA — The Zambian government has approved the evacuation of disgraced former President Frederick Chiluba to South Africa for treatment because of his deteriorating health, his spokesman said this week.
The ailing former leader, who has an acute heart condition, will be flown to South Africa for specialist treatment by the Zambian government, which has accused him of corruption, said Emmanuel Mwamba.
