Observations From A Youth Leader In Kinshasa
In polling station number 10002 at the center Bokolo in the Bandalungwa commune a candidate running for the national legislature came into the polling station with ballots in his hands and the population took it as an attempt to cheat. The people snatched the bulletins from him and burnt them. President Kabila's security forces then came on the scene and started firing in the air, dispersed the crowd and arrested people. The police came late after the fracas. The official ballots in the polling station remain untouched.
