Vicotr Elunga Sukamai, police superintendant: 'No, I never arrested a white man in my 35-year career, only Congolese. The biggest criminal I was able to arrest in my career was Anewalina. He specialised in burglary. We tried to arrest him for years but he was always too quick for us. After a tip from an informer, we were able to locate him in the Memling Hotel, Kinshasa's poshest hotel. We demanded the key from the reception. We burst into the room with five constables. He was lying in bed with two women in room 13. We took him to the station in his underpants.'.
