Protests Repressed Once Again in Kinshasa

Several thousand marchers in Kinshasa protesting irregularities in the election process were violently repressed once again by the police.

Several injuries were reported, however no fatal injuries were reported. The climate is becoming increasingly tense in the nation as we get closer to the July 30th election date.

The international community has a lot vested in the elections. It is highly unlikely that it will allow anything or anyone to disrupt the polls.

Many Congolese although, disenchanted and believe that kabila will be installed as president will turn out to the polls, especially to vote for officials for the parliament.
