Govt Denies Coup Claim In Congo


The Congo Brazzaville Government, on Sunday, debunked claims that the military sacked the current civilian government led by President Denis Sassou Nguesso.

This is coming after several unconfirmed reports claimed that the military was trying to oust the government and seize power.

The country’s Minister of Information, Thierry Moungalla, who allayed the fears of citizens, described the claims as “fake news”.

“URGENT – Fanciful information suggests serious events that may be underway in #Brazzaville. The Government denies this fake news.

“We reassure public opinion about the calm that reigns and invite people to calmly go about their activities,” the minister wrote on his X page on Sunday.
