The disappearance of Alain Shungu, former RFI correspondent in

It is with great sadness that we learned about the disappearance in Lyon, on April 17, at the age of 61, from our colleague Alain Shungu, who was RFI’s correspondent in Brazzaville between 1995 and 1997.

Journalist, former RFI correspondent in Brazzaville from 1995 to 1997, Alain Shungu has also collaborated with Voice Of America, Deutsche Welle, Ouest-France, Africa International and most recently TV5Monde, for which he was a correspondent.

Our hearts go out to his family and many friends.

In his memory, a religious ceremony will take place on Friday, May 6, at 14:30, in Paris, in the Church of Saint-Bernard de la Chapelle, 11 rue Affre, in the 18th arrondissement. France Médias Monde and RFI will lay a wreath there.
