Congo Ruling Party Demands National Assembly Deputy QuitTom Wilson
The Democratic Republic of Congo’s ruling party called for the resignation of National Assembly Vice President Charles Mwando Nsimba after he signed a letter demanding President Joseph Kabila respect term limits.
The ruling party asked for Nsimba to step down in a statement e-mailed by the Presidential Majority from the capital, Kinshasa. On Wednesday, the coalition party expelled seven political leaders who signed the letter to Kabila.
