Description

Opposition parties in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are planning more protests to try to force President Joseph Kabila to hold elections on time. Under the constitution, Kabila cannot run for another term, but the government is warning of a delay in elections because of budgetary and logistical problems. Moise Katumbi, a prominent opposition leader, is in South Africa for medical treatment after he was injured in protests last week.
