Attempt to Save Democracy

It was a usual cold and wet day in London today

but that did not stop the Congolese to come out and protest against President Joseph Kabila. President Kabila was supposed to step down at midnight on Monday as his second and final term as the President ended but he did not, leading to widespread protests. More than 20 people have been reported dead along with 275 arrested in Congo as a result of the harsh response of the government on the protesters.
The government has blocked television, radio and social media sites leading to further chaos. The threat of having dozens of armed rebel groups operating across the country is also lurking, a political crisis could easily empower them. Ministers loyal to Kabila argue that due to financial instability it will difficult to hold elections anytime soon hence the constitution allows the President to remain in power until the next successor is elected. Many, including the opposition, fear that Kabila is seeking to stay in power indefinitely.
Protests have not just been taking place in Congo but all across the world including London. Inside Westminster has covered the protest happening in Central London for over a few days now and interviewed the organizer of the protest Mr.Ackys Kituba. We, at Inside Westminster strongly support the cause to save democracy; we hope that Congo soon is able to conduct a free and fair election.
