DR Congo crisis deal 'close but not before Christmas'

People protest in the neighbourhood of Yolo in Kinshasa on December 20, 2016 after the opposition leader called on citizens to reject President Joseph Kabila whose mandate expired on December 20A deal aimed at ending DR Congo’s political crisis caused by President Joseph Kabila’s clinging to power is close but will not be signed before Christmas, mediators said Friday. “It is an illusion to think of a signature today”, but “we could reach a consensus during a plenary session this afternoon”, said a source in the Congo National Episcopal Conference (CENCO), ahead of talks between government and opposition scheduled for 2:00 pm (1300 GMT). The unstable, mineral-rich nation has been thrust into political turmoil by Kabila’s refusal to step down after his second and final five-year term, which officially ended on December 20.
