Banned by the municipality of Kinshasa, the march organized this Wednesday by the opposition was dispersed by the police with tear gas. Opponent Martin Fayulu could not go to the place of resemblance.

While Martin Fayulu and his activists had arranged to meet in a square in a working-class district in the east of the Congolese capital , at 8 a.m. local time , the demonstration did not last long.

Following the decision of the city governor, who banned this march, the police had already mobilized early in the morning. The militants who tried to assemble were systematically dispersed and tear gas was used by the police to deter those who had managed to gather around the opponent Martin Fayulu . Some arrests and injuries were also reported.

The police tried, in vain, to stop Martin Fayulu, and faced with resistance from the former presidential candidate, the police punctured the tires of his car to prevent him from continuing his progression towards the meeting place.

Angry, Martin Fayulu went to the police station to demand that his car be repaired. His request was met, new tires were purchased by the police and his car was returned to him.

This altercation marked the end of the demonstration but the opponent has already promised new gatherings in the days to come.
