Long Live the Spirit of Floribert Chebeya

We are outraged by the loss of Floribert Chebeya, a champion for human rights and justice in the Congo. Indications are that the repressive Kabila regime is increasingly extinguishing the voices of the people as the regime looks to maintain power by any means.

Listen to Radio France Internationale (RFI) reports on the assassination of Congolese Human Rights activist, Floribert CHEBEYA BAHIZIRE.!/video/video.php?v=402579444658

Mr. Chebeya's assassination is part and parcel of a climate of impunity that pervade Congolese society, which has resulted in the systematic murder of journalists and human rights activists under the regime of Joseph Kabila. An independent investigation with the full participation of civil society and the parliament is a bare minimum.

The Cause of Death of Chebeya to be known in 3 to 5 weeks:
