Congolese Police Commissioner Christian Ngoy Kenga Kenga Sentenced To Death After Murdering An Activist In 2010

Congolese police commissioner Christian Ngoy Kenga Kenga has been sentenced to death for murdering Zairean human rights activist Floribert Chebeya in 2010, with the military court deeming the punishment: “Fit for the crime”.

Mr Chebeya began his human rights advocacy during the reign of Zairian dictator Mobutu Sese Seko, 20 years before he was murdered by the rouge Mr Ngoy Kenga Kenga.

Throughout both Congo Wars in the 1990's and 2000's, Chebeya documented hundreds of human rights violations and was a known enemy of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

During his career he received many death threats, but in 2010 they came true.

After his murder 12 years ago, the DRC received international condemnation for the country's highest commissioner being able to murder an activist scot-free, that was until he was tried a year later and sentenced to life in prison for the murder.

His execution date has not been made public.
