Since April 2016, unprecedented violence has erupted in the Kasaï region, in the heart of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Amid a political crisis, a customary Kamwina Nsapu chief started a rebellion against the State. Faced with repression, the Kasai provinces, up to this point an oasis of peace, broke into violence. Massacres, public executions...: this violence, which is reminiscent of the Congo’s history’s darkest hours, is told via pictures.
