Demonstrations continue in Niger after the proclamation of the victory of Mouhamed Bazoum, candidate for power. This Friday, the demonstrators attacked both public and private property.
Thus, the house of Moussa Kaka, Rfi’s correspondent in Niamey, was set on fire. The French radio believes that Kaka was targeted as a journalist. This is, according to it, an attack on the freedom of the press.
In 2007, Moussa Kaka was sent to prison for a year by former president Mamadou Tandja who accused him of being in collusion with the Tuareg rebellion.
