DRC: Will Kabila step down? | Inside Story

Will Kabila step down?

It’s a New Year, but when it comes to politics in Democratic Republic of Congo, there’s nothing new.

President Joseph Kabila has been in power since 2001.

His second term in office officially ended in December 2016, but he’s still there.

And promised elections never happened. Catholics in the capital Kinshasa prayed on Sunday.

They want Kabila to leave…but peaceful demonstrations turned violent.

At least seven people were killed and dozens arrested by security forces.

So what does 2018 hold for the people of DRC?
