Kinshasa Responds

Indications that Kinshasa is finally responding to the crisis in the east: first, President Kabila has appointed a new military commander for FARDC, Lieutenant General Didier Etumba Longila; second, Kabila has announced that he will be moving his office from the National Palace into the parliamentary building, the Assemble Nationale.

Radio Okapi features a discussion (in French) among three Congolese about the significance of these two measures. The three Congolese are Emery Okundji, national deputy for the Forces novatrices pour l’union et la solidarité (Fonus); Adèle Kayinda Mahina, national deputy for PPRD; and Achille Kabongo, a jurist.
