Prominent Radio Journalist And Ebola Education Activist Murdered — In Lwemba, Mandima Province, DRC

Twice now, in just the last few days, murderous thugs have killed workers in the field-fight against Ebola, in the DRC.

Here is the latest of the tragedies:

. . . .Professor Steve Ahuka, national co-ordinator of the fight against Ebola, confirmed that a local worker involved in the fight against Ebola in Lwemba had been killed.

A journalist at Radio Lwemba, the local radio station where he worked, confirmed the details.

“Our colleague Papy Mumbere Mahamba has been killed at his home by unknown attackers. . .” who had stabbed him to death, Jacques Kamwina told AFP. . . .

DRC declared an Ebola epidemic in August 2018 in the eastern provinces of North Kivu, South Kivu and Ituri, that border Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. The outbreak has so far killed 2,185 people, according to the latest official figures.. . .

This. Simply. Must. End. Ignorance is killing people whose sole and laudatory goal is. . . the eradication of. . . Ebola.
