Kabila Efforts to Retain Power Cloud Prospects in DR Congo

President Joseph Kabila has promised that presidential elections in the Democratic Republic of the Congo will take place as scheduled in November 2016. If he decides to delay or maneuver for a third term, as seems likely, prospects for the country are ominous and instability will spill over into neighboring countries, according to former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Africa Ambassador Herman J. Cohen.
