Embattled DR Congo opposition leader Katumbi in London: lawyer

Opposition figure Moise Katumbi (R) arrives at the courthouse in Lubumbashi, DR Congo on May 13, 2016Moise Katumbi, the embattled DR Congo opposition leader who quit the country last week ostensibly for medical treatment, has now flown from South Africa to London, one of his lawyers said Sunday. Katumbi, a football magnate seen as the leading challenger to President Joseph Kabila for the top job in the mineral-rich country, needs “rest” and it is not clear when he will be heading home, Georges Kapiamba told AFP. With political tensions soaring over expectations that Kabila wants to extend his rule despite being barred from a third term, Katumbi has been all but forced into exile as he faces charges of undermining state security.
