Under the canvas of military tents are nearly 80 defendants dressed in "court hearing" shirts. The resumption of the so-called Yumbi mega-trial on November 26 came after months of postponements after its speedy opening in May 2021. The High Military Court of Kinshasa is trying the alleged perpetrators of massacres in four villages of the Yumbi region (western Congo) during clashes between members of the Ntende and Nunu ethnic groups, which left nearly 900 people dead in two days on December 16 and 18, 2018.
