Update from the DRC

Since Kabila’s term officially ran out on December 19 and a few days of violent protest followed, his government and the opposition have been in desperate talks to stave off civil war. A provisional deal was proposed, though nothing has been officially agreed upon yet, and violence is escalating, especially as floods have devastated parts of the country. Perhaps the most useful mediator will end up being the Church, both locally and with guidance from the Pope. Fingers crossed!
