Con­cern over DRC

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

KIN­SHASA: For­mer UN sec­re­tary-gen­eral Kofi An­nan and nine for­mer African pres­i­dents have warned the Demo­cratic Repub­lic of Congo is in “grave dan­ger” due to the fail­ure to or­gan­ise an elec­tion to re­place Pres­i­dent Joseph Ka­bila.

Ka­bila re­fused to step down at the end of his con­sti­tu­tional man­date last De­cem­ber. An agree­ment be­tween the rul­ing coali­tion and the op­po­si­tion calls for the poll by the end of this year, but de­lays in reg­is­ter­ing vot­ers and get­ting fi­nanc­ing make it un­likely. – Reuters
