Congo's new president Felix Tshisekedi has come to office with ambitious plans. He wants to fight poverty, lower unemployment and raise wages.
Poland’s ruling party has pledged to raise the minimum wage by 90% over four years. A month before a general election, such a move is either a stroke of political genius or economic calamity, depending on who you ask.
When it comes to fighting the Ebola outbreak, the German foreign minister had a straightfoward message for DRC President Felix Tshisekedi. Fabian von der Mark reports from Kinshasa.
The opposition in the DRC has long maintained that President Felix Tshisekedi is a puppet of former President Joseph Kabila. The new Cabinet shows how powerful the ex-president still is.
Most members of the new executive have been drawn from former president Joseph Kabila's Common Front for Congo. DRC will now have a female vice prime minister, minister for foreign affairs and minister for planning.
