I won with 60 per cent of votes – Fayulu

By Anthony Opara

Pressure is mounting on the judges of the Constitutional Court in the Democratic Republic of Congo, DRC ahead of its sitting on Saturday to consider an appeal from the declared runner-up in the December 30 presidential polls, Mr Martin Fayulu that he is the rightful winner of the long-delayed poll.

Addressing supporters on Friday, the businessman and lawmaker charged his followers to keep the faith even as he heads to the courts for the restoration of the mandate that he alleges had been stolen from him.

Fayulu says that from his own tally he had won the contest in a landslide fashion, garnering well over 60 per cent of the total votes cast.
