drcThere are so many ways someone would wish to go down, but masturbating is not one of them.

President Joseph Kabila of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) last week fired a deputy minister who was caught jerking off in office.

A video of 54 year old Enock Ruberangabo Sebineza, Deputy Minister of posts, telecommunications and information technology, went viral in the country last week.

The 4 minutes 27 seconds long video caused public outrage leaving the President with no choice but to send him home.

The video was reportedly captured on his computer webcam, with the official portrait of the president and the country’s flag providing an unlikely backdrop.

Mr. Ruberangabo is seen getting out his joystick, before playing with himself for over 4 minutes and dutifully securing his produce.

It is believed his actions were driven by a co-participant on the other side of the lens.

Enock Ruberangabo is a renowned Tutsi of the Congolese Banyamulenge community. He has prominently participated in the inter-Congolese dialogue, and been national deputy in the transitional parliament (2003-2006).

His dismissal and apparent end of his political career was announced on State television on Friday evening in a statement in which he was charged with ‘a serious breach of duty and ethics’ unbecoming of the dignity of senior official.

Well, get caught grabbing land get caught stealing public money, but ffs, never get caught polishing the family jewels.
