Moise Katumbi, who has often been described as the second-most powerful man in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, has returned to the country from three years of political exile. DW takes a look at his journey.
The body of former DRC opposition leader Etienne Tshisekedi has been returned from Brussels, two years after his death. It was delayed over concerns that the opposition would call to oust then-President Joseph Kabila.
The DR Congo has a new prime minister: Sylvestre Ilunga Ilunkamba. Who is this head of government, who was chosen as a compromise between the former and the current presidents? And what can the Congolese expect from him?
After being excluded from DR Congo's elections in December, the city of Yumbi is to vote on March 31. But many locals are in exile after ethnic violence. And it is unclear if the government was involved in the strife.
First the voting was delayed, now the results are being contested. It has been a difficult election for the Democratic Republic of Congo and its citizens, who are longing for peace, says DW's Dirke Köpp.
