James Katshingu Mwamba

UDPS member


This UDPS activist was arrested on 22 November 2017, only minutes before Christian Lumu, the opposition party’s foreign relations representative, was abducted. James Katshingu is being held in the ANR’s 3Z dungeons. He is suffering from appendicitis. He has already been transferred to an ANR medical centre for treatment four times.

He is allowed to receive occasional visits from a family member, but he is not allowed to meet with his lawyer. The reason for his arrest is still unknown.
