Opposition’s Tshisekedi wins DR Congo presidency


South Africa and Zambia joined the clamor to publish the results.

“The delay in releasing the results of the elections can lead to suspicions and compromise peace and stability of the country,” South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and Zambian President Edgar Lungu said in a joint statement.

In the lead-up to the results, the opposition hinted at a rapprochement.

“There’s no spirit of revenge,” Tshisekedi told Belgian newspaper Le Soir.

Kabila and Tshisekedi “have an interest in meeting to prepare a peaceful and civilized transfer of power,” UDPS secretary-general Jean-Marc Kabund said this week.
