Presidential candidate slams government’s tactics
Martin Fayulu, the runner-up in Congo’s presidential race, says the government deployed armed soldiers around his headquarters because of the ruling party’s “desperation.”
Fayulu is legally challenging his defeat, saying that he won 61 percent of the vote. As he was preparing to file his legal challenge at the constitutional court Saturday, the Republican Guard surrounded his offices, according to witnesses.
“I’m attributing this to desperation. But we have faith,” Fayulu said Sunday.
