Join us on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 1:00 pm EST to discuss the latest, rapidly-evolving developments in Congo's political crisis. RSVP below.
The government of Congo recently brokered an agreement about the electoral crisis through its "dialogue" process, despite virtually no support from Congo’s opposition or civil society. The agreement would allow President Kabila to remain in power until at least April 2018. CENCO, the Catholic Church’s Conference of Episcopal Bishops in Congo, has been asked by President Kabila to begin consultations with opposition and civil society leaders in hopes of finding a consensus solution to the electoral crisis that will help avoid violence. At the same time, however, the Congolese government has continued a pattern of extrajudicial arrests of civil society members, in what appears to be an attempt to silence dissent. Despite a ban by President Kabila's government on any public assembly, political opposition and civil society organizations plan upcoming protests.
