Equipped with their combat equipment, nearly 5,000 Republican Guard combat troops responsible for protecting the Head of State and the country’s institutions marched through the streets of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s capital Kinshasa on Saturday, following a failed coup. AfricaNews reports that presidential security adviser Francois Beya was meanwhile arrested by forces from Congo’s National Intelligence Agency on suspicion of undermining state security. No further details have been released about his arrest or the planned coup, but he was believed to still be in National Intelligence Agency’s custody.
