DRC Catholic Church fears Kabila will remote-control Tshisekedi.
Leader of the Catholic Church in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, DRC, says he is worried that outgoing Kabila will continue to control affairs of state even after he officially exits office.
In an interview with French broadcaster, RFI, Fridolin Ambongo, archbishop of the capital Kinshasa, said there was a palpable fear that Tshisekedi who was declared president-elect could have little room for maneuver.
“I am very worried that the same system will continue with the new president,” Archbishop Ambongo told RFI. On the upcoming swearing in of the new president, he said the church will consider whether to atten or not.
He, however, stressed that they will continue to scrutinize the first steps of Tshisekedi who they hope would stick to his pledge to better the lives of ordinary Congolese.
