Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sep 25, 2018 / 11:44 am
As the Democratic Republic of the Congo prepares to hold a general election in December, after a two-year delay, Catholics in the capital continue to be activists to encourage a peaceful transition of power.
Last month president Joseph Kabila announced he would step down after 17 years in power. The announcement follows years of protests, supported by Catholics bishops, against the delaying of elections.
Kabila has been ruling in defiance of term limits, remaining president two years after he was required to leave office in 2016.
General elections have been scheduled for Dec. 23.
