DR CONGO - The UN evacuates 25 seminarians of the Seminary of Kananga assaulted in February

Twenty-five seminarians were evacuated by the Blue Helmets of the UN Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUSCO). 

The seminarians evacuated in Mbuji-Mayi were part of the group that went missing in the forest as a result of the assault, on February 18, at the Major Seminary of Malole in Kananga, in Central Kasai, by militants of the traditional late chief Kamuina Nsapu.

Following the appeal launched by His Exc. Mgr. Emmanuel Bernard Kasanda Mulenga, Bishop of Mbuji-Mayi, the twenty-five seminarians were able to return to their families, after they were stranded in Kananga because the road that connects in Mbuji-Mayi is blocked due to the presence of Kamuina Nsapu militiamen.
