African country Still hoping for the best

The Democratic republic of the Congo is still looking for progress after their recent presidential election in December 2011. The Congo has had two president at once since then and neither one of both parties wants to give up the power. That has caused many violent protests.  Kabila, 40, came to power in 2001 when his father, Laurent, who had ousted dictator Mobutu Sese Seko, was shot dead by a bodyguard.Tshisekedi, 78, immediately disputed the result and declared himself president. “I consider these results a real provocation of the Congolese people,” he said on RFI Radio. “As a consequence, I consider myself, from today, the elected president of the Democratic Republic of Congo.” both parties are looking for the situation to calm down and for the government to redo the elections.
