A drunk soldier has embarked on a shooting rampage in the eastern province of the Democratic Republic of Congo thereby leaving twelve people dead and injuring nine people.

Authorities said the sad incident happened on Thursday 30th July 2020.

Security services are conducting a search for the gunman in the city of Sange, 15 miles (24 km) from the Burundian border, where the shooting took place, the governor of South Kivu province, Theo Kasi, said in a statement.

President Felix Tshisekedi called the attack a heinous crime and offered his condolences to the victims’ families.

Congo’s vast army is widely seen as poorly trained and unprofessional, and its personnel are frequently accused of committing crimes against civilians.

Senior generals are under U.S. and EU sanctions for alleged abuses, and are accused by the United Nations of having supplied weapons to rebels and criminal gangs.
