Journalist violently attacked during ruling party congress
Kembila was accused of filming the empty stadium seats where the party's second congress was being held. He was attacked immediately after having finished filming the Secretary General's speech. His assailants also confiscated his videotape.
In an interview with JED, Kembila stated that he was attacked by a certain Mr. Willy, a bodyguard and close family member of the Secretary General. "When he read '[email protected]' on my press vest, he called over some other security guards, who attacked me and took my videotape. Mr. Willy accused me of filming the empty seats with the aim of tarnishing the image of the PPRD," added Kembila.
