DRC protesters angry with Zuma
Johannesburg - A group of protesters from the Democratic Republic of Congo have accused President Jacob Zuma of being complicit in what they believe is electoral fraud during their recent election.
"Zuma has organised fraud in our election," said Mondeor Mwela during a protest in central Johannesburg.
Protesters threw the business cards of Etienne Tshisekedi, challenger to President Laurent Kabila, in the air.
The group said police had fired rubber bullets at them as they tried to get to the ANC's Luthuli House headquarters in the Johannesburg CBD.
Police kept them at bay opposite Beyers Naude square, while parts of Sauer and President streets were cordoned off.
The group said western interests wanted Kabila to stay in place because of the country's mineral resources.
They questioned why South Africa had sent troops to the country, saying there was no war and that they wanted the troops out. They claimed the South African observers were aware there was cheating in the election, but had not done anything about it.
