In the Democratic Republic of Congo, somewhere in deep Africa, a wild west situation exists. In the city of Lubumbashi Click for map, in the last 6 months, 17 motorcycle riders have been assassinated on the streets (source Open source link in a new window). All of them were motorcycle-taxis (aka Okadas), and some of them were killed by people in uniform (police or military). According to other sources, there probably are more bikers killed but the information has not reached the local police force.

In order to curb the killing of motorcycle riders, the Mayor of the city has ordered that no motorcycles are allowed to circulate after 6 PM (source Open source link in a new window). Any biker found to be riding after 18:00 will be arrested, as will the passenger.
