JED's Tshikapa correspondent assaulted and injured by soldiers; cameraman detained briefly
According to information received by JED, soldiers tried to prevent Kilimandjaro cameraman Patrick Tshibwabwa from filming a football match between two local teams, FC Momekano and AS Bakolo Mboka. As Kambidi intervened, he was attacked by Sub-Lieutenant Masiya's men. Masiya told him, "You know that we were looking for you ... because you are [Etienne] Tshisekedi's man." Tshisekedi is president of the opposition Union pour la démocratie et le progrès social (UDPS).
Tshibwabwa was arrested and taken to the detention facility located at FAC's Tshikapa headquarters. He was released three hours later, but his camera was confiscated.
