The road map to political dialogue in the Democratic Republic of Congo is seemingly more clear after representatives drawn from government, the oppostion and civil society signed the final document that defines the objectives and framework of the all inclusive talks.
The talks are aimed to avoid political chaos in the country after President Joseph Kabila’s term expires in December this year.
Already, there are political tensions in the country and the talks brokered by African Union (AU) facilitator Edem Kodjo, are viewed as the bridge the that will allow the first democratic transition in DRC.
However, the Movement for the Liberation of Congo, Jean Pierre Bemba’s party has shunned the talks.
The all inclusive dialogue is expected to be held from September 1- 14.
