Fighting in Congolese Communities

Friday, May 24th a little before noon, the situation returned to calm in Nguba in the neighborhood of Nyalukemba, in the town of Ibanda in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of the Congo. This after an incident that pitted the people of Banyamilenge community against their Congolese compatriots in the Nguba cell of Nyalukemba neighborhood.

Nganda, a terrible drink, was the origin of the fight, which began on Thursday following many insults and slurs. During the altercation, some Banyamulenge students took part in the fighting from Greenlight square, according to the public figure Enoch Sebineza. There were four wounded who were hospitalized at BIOSADEC hospital that same Thursday.

To express their anger, some Banyamulenge students barricaded the road to Nguba market. These students and other young men started to throw stones and the situation degenerated into violent skirmishes. Many people were hurt. A church was vandalized, all goods taken and chairs broken by demonstrators on Lundula Muhumba avenue.

The governor of South Kivu province, Marcellin Chishambo Ruhoya, was on the ground with his entire staff trying to re-establish public order. He chaired a Security Council after which he received delegations from the opposition. The head of the Provincial Executive provided them wise counsel. He appealed for calm and asked everyone under his jurisdiction to continue to live in harmony and peaceful coexistence as in the past.

Marcellin Chishambo forbid his citizens to engage in any escalation against their countrymen, and he insisted upon the coexistence of all Congolese communities in South Kivu.

He ordered the deployment of police in the streets where problems existed to secure these areas and the situation is now under control. The Provincial Governor, Marcellin Chishambo, then went to the city’s hospitals where around 30 wounded were admitted. He did this in order to get up to speed on their condition and possible treatments.
