The Government of Democratic Republic of Congo has issued an international arrest warrant for Moise Katumbi who has been in self-imposed exile since 2016.
Yesterday, Justice Minister Alexis Thambwe Mwamba revealed that opposition leader should be arrested wherever he was found.
But Mr Katumbi told the BBC: “How can they issue an arrest warrant against me and yet two weeks ago, they blocked me when I tried to enter the country?
“Right now I am in Namibia and they can find me if they want to arrest me.
“My reaction is that those claims are being made by empty drums, just like they say empty tins make the loudest noise.
“The people that are subjecting Congolese to misery are those in leadership making false accusations against me.
“It is those who are stealing and killing people right now that should face the law.”
