DRC slammed over arrests of SA guards

No charges have been brought yet against the South Africans arrested in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Foreign Affairs spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa says 19 South Africans are being held with three Americans and four Nigerians on charges of wanting to destabilize the DRC government. South African ambassador in Kinshasa Sisa Ngombane has, meanwhile, slammed the DRC for the arrests. He told Die Burger that plans to screen visual material of the men was a gross violation of their rights. Ngombane said South Africa had always had good relations with the government of President Joseph Kabila and that the DRC government was not being frank about the arrests.
