Image result for African leaders warn against election delays in DRCFormer U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and nine former African presidents have warned that the future of Democratic Republic of Congo is in “grave danger” due to failure to organise an election to replace President Joseph Kabila.

Annan and former presidents Thabo Mbeki and Olusegun Obasanjo said the failure to organise elections in 2016, in conformity with the constitution of the DRC, has created an acute political crisis.

The leaders said they had to sound the alarm before it became too late.

An agreement between Kabila’s ruling coalition and opposition leaders calls for the presidential election to take place by the end of this year, but delays in registering voters and mobilising financing make that increasingly unlikely.
