South Africa called for calm on Monday ahead of the announcement of the presidential election results in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The results would be announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, and South Africa warned that “any other body of civil society should refrain from announcing any results of the elections”, because it “may undermine peace and stability in the DRC, as well as multilateral processes”.
“We urge all leaders from different sectors of society to be responsible and wait for the elections results from CENI”.
By its statement, South Africa has joined the SADC, the AU and many other international organizations awaiting the elections results in DRC to call for calm.
I was born in a small village in Cameroon, groomed in Nigeria’s most populous city of Lagos, and moved to Washington D.C. to practice journalism at a global level. From here in the American capital, I ask big questions to leaders around the world, and focus on business, investment and politics in Africa. Back in Africa while doing my job, I was kidnapped, dumped in the woods and left for dead but survived, only to be attacked at gunpoint by sea pirates, arrested by security forces and falsely accused of being a spy for terrorists.
