Demonstrators, claiming to be “youth Congolese Hutu” invaded, Thursday, January 26, the streets of the city of Goma in North Kivu, to protest against the abduction of one of their comrades missing since Monday. The police even tried in the late morning to disperse protesters and remove their barricades.

From 6:00 am local time, protesters erected barricades on the road from Goma to Sake, disrupting traffic. The police intervened to disperse them by firing shots into the air. Hours later, protesters erected barricades on the other drive from the airport.

These events spineless lobby the provincial authorities to encourage them to find the president of the Hutu community in Rutshuru, Mr. Musasya, missing since last Monday, in circumstances not yet clear.

While still keeping commenting on the event, the provincial authorities and the police still attempted to calm the situation.

    I was not aware that the Hutu in DR Congo have a president! These self-styled tyrants are the bin Ladens of tomorrow. May be it is correct to make him disappear. As for the youth disrupting peace, no government should allow hooliganism to be the order of the day. Send the lads back to their mothers sobbing.
