Congo capital quiet following opposition call for general strike

The streets of Congo’s capital Kinshasa were quiet on Wednesday and little traffic flowed following a call by the main opposition bloc for a general strike to press President Joseph Kabila to step down in December.

Kabila’s two-term mandate expires in December, but authorities agreed this week to postpone an election originally slated for November until April 2018.
