ICG to the U.S. Senate: Legitimizing Kabila would destroy any US credibility in Congo left


The Congolese Diaspora in Paris protest incumbent Congolese President Joseph Kabila's election theft, and the violence of his Republican Guard, formerly known as the Presidential Security Guard.
Congolese people all over the world are protesting incumbent President Joseph Kabila's election theft and violence, and analysts are warning that the Congolese army could split, leading to civil war. Even the conservative International Crisis Group told the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee that legitimizing Kabila's claim to victory, in a massively fraudulent election, would destroy any credibility the U.S. has left in Congo.
