DR Congo risks 'even worse crisis' over Kabila uncertainty

Kabila, who has been in power since 2001, is widely believed to be considering casting aside the constitution to take a third term in office after his tenure expires at the end of the year. “This missed opportunity, and the uncertainty sustained by (Kabila’s) speech risk instead plunging the country into even deeper crisis,” said Katumbi, who came second to the president in 2011 polls that were marred by fraud.
