The Congo Brazzaville Government headed by President Denis Sassou Nguesso has denied rumours of a coup attempt against his government, yesterday.
Some social media platforms reported that a coup attempt was ongoing in the country while the president was away in New York, United States for the United Nations General Assembly.
But the country’s minister of communication and media, Thierry Moungalla, hurriedly debunked it via his X (Twitter) page.
“URGENT – Fanciful information suggests serious events that are 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 tweeted.
