A Presidents house is his castle

Congo's president , Denis Sassou-Nguesso , defended himself against charges of corruption and the fact that he is connected with the ownership of properties that include flats in Paris's Foch Avenue, in Parisian suburbs such as Courbevoie and Velizy, and in expensive areas in the south of France such as the Cote d'Azur said :-

"In France, all the world's leaders have castles and so on. I am very surprised that only two people are targeted"

As if that is a defence .

Benjamin Mutsila, president of Congolese Diaspora, told the BBC.

"The properties never belong directly to presidents themselves but instead to their daughters, sons, nephews or [are] registered to property companies . It is not a president's salary that could have generated the considerable resources needed to acquire such property "
