Freedom of information is constantly violated in Democratic Republic of Congo, a country ruled by President Joseph Kabila since his father’s assassination in 2001. Journalists are exposed to threats, physical violence, arrest, prolonged detention and even murder. The main perpetrators – the army, police and security services – enjoy complete impunity. The Burundian journalist Egide Mwemero has been detained arbitrarily since October 2015.
