Men (about twenty) broke into Saint Dominique Parish of Limete 13th Street this Sunday, February 19 in the morning, messing up everything they found on their way.

Witnesses on the spot report that the reason for the anger of these rampagers not otherwise identified for the moment would be the delay of the conclusion of the political negotiations that have been taking place since last December under the auspices of the Catholic bishops of the national episcopal conference of the Congo/CENCO.


The congregants were not able to meet on this Sunday as usual. A priest of this parish describes this act as « profanation of religious symbols » and promises to take appropriate measures.

The perpetrators of this reprehensible act are unknown at this time. They may be the same ones who have been circulating a leaflet since the evening of Saturday February 18 calling on the population to demonstrate this Monday 20, promising to scuttle any symbol of the Catholic Church: parishes and schools.
