Was Congo Election chairperson beaten for announcing fake result?

Published

on

A video circulating on social media claims that a woman being beaten in the video is the Democratic Republic of Congo election chairperson and that she was beaten for announcing fake results.

The claim is FALSE
The video has been seen on Twitter, Facebook and has been forwarded many times on WhatsApp.

One of the captions reads: “Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) ELECTION COMMISION CHAIR HUMILIATED AFTER ANOUNCING FAKE AND RIGGED RESULTS. Until we have this action in dubious countries in Africa,  we wouldn’t have peace. Because they are protected with police and several forces. The time is coming.”

The video shared amidst the presidential election held in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) recently showed voters who had come to cast their votes at a polling centre beating a woman who struggled to flee the hostile mob.

The president of the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) in DR-Congo is male, and his photographs, as published by credible news platforms, show no resemblance to the woman in the video.

A simple Google check brings the picture of a man named Mr. Denis Kadima, described as the “election chief”.

His name was found published on Aljazeera and Voice of Africa (VOA) as the president of the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI).

CONCLUSION
The claim that video shows CENI president being beaten for announcing fake election results in Congo is FALSE.
