Another soldier in the Democratic Republic of Congo Armed Forces (FARDC) in Mikenge, Kasai-Central Province has murdered his wife with the reason behind the killing still unknown.

The soldier, an element of the 123rd battalion in Mikenge, on the highlands of Mwenga (Itombwe Section), is said to have shot and killed his wife on the evening of Wednesday, 30 August 2023.

Military officials have confirmed the unfortunate development caused by the soldier who has since been captured and detained.
