DRC: Clergy urge President Kabila to speak on electoral process

[Africanews/AGENCY] Catholic bishops in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Bukavu region have called on president Joseph Kabila to declare a stand on the ongoing electoral process in the country.

The bishops made the appeal at the end of the ordinary session of the Provincial Assembly of Episcopal held in Kindu (Maniema).

The clergymen urged Kabila to clearly express his position on the violence that has plagued the country as a result of the ongoing electoral process.

They also called on political leaders in the country to desist from the culture of lying to citizens instead of enlightening them on real issues of the national dialogue and the electoral deadlines which are approaching.

Among other recommendations made at the end of the session, were a plea for fair and equitable compensation of employees and civil servants of the State.

The Catholic prelates also called on the Congolese government to effectively implement citizenship and patriotism services for the people.

The Ecclesiastical Province of Bukavu includes the cities of Goma, Butembo, Kasongo, Bukavu and Kindu.
