DR Congo, Zambia Seek SADC Intervention On Border Dispute

The Democratic Republic of Congo has approached Zimbabwean President Mnangagwa in his capacity as Chairperson of the SADC Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Cooperation to mediate in its long-standing border dispute with Zambia. DR Congo and Zambia have had misunderstandings over a part of their common 1,600km border, the latest arising from the late 1980s attempt to demarcate the frontier with beacons.
