Papy Mumbere Mahamba has been killed by unidentified attackers who raided to his house in Lwebma, in the north-eastern province of Ituri, left his wife wounded and burnt their house down.

He is believed to must have been killed due to his involved in the fight against Ebola as he had just hosted an Ebola awareness programme on a community radio station before the attack too place.

Professor Steve Ahuka, national coordinator of the fight against Ebola as reported by BBC Africa confirmed the reports from the army that a “community worker” involved in the fight against Ebola had been killed.

Efforts to control the outbreak have been encumbered by violence against healthcare workers and Ebola treatment facilities. This has come in due to disbelief in existence of the virus in some people and mistrust of health workers, leading people to avoid treatment.

So far reports have revealed that more than 2,000 people have died due to Ebola outbreak in DR Congo since it was declared an Ebola epidemic in August 2018
