Mixed reactions in Kinshasa over Kamerhe’s sentencing

The former National Assembly speaker was handed down a 20 year sentence for corruption with hard labour Saturday.

“Of course Kamerhe was convicted of so-called “embezzlement of public funds”. But the judiciary was unable to give tangible evidence proving his guilt, so that people would give credit to this sentence”, Olivier Bofulu, a taxi driver said.
