Must read

The Congo Brazzaville Government, on Sunday, said claims of military coup in the country were false.

Reacting to an earlier report on the sack of the civilian president, Denis Sassou Nguesso, the government tagged the news as fake.

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.
