DRC deportees safely home

The 19 South Africans deported from the Democratic Republic of Congo for their alleged involvement in a coup plot arrived home safely last night. The men were met by emotional family and friends as they left the international arrivals hall at the Johannesburg International Airport. CEO of the Omega Group told the media that 15 of his employees were among those released from the DRC. He said the men had been involved in upgrading ports in the DRC in order to bring security in the ports up to international standards. He had high praise for Ambassador Sisa Ngombane in Kinshasa and the DRC's ambassador in Pretoria, Bene M'pako, for the part they played in resolving what he called the misunderstanding that led to the men being arrested.
