Exiled Congolese opposition leader Moise Katumbi has launched a campaign to be elected president in polls scheduled for December, unveiling his new “Together for Change” party in South Africa. Democratic Republic of Congo’s election was originally scheduled for late 2016, but has been twice delayed, leading to unrest in the vast mineral-rich country. Western powers have accepted the delay with reluctance, hoping it will avoid bloodshed. But Katumbi faces an outstanding sentence of three years imprisonment over a property deal and has spent three years in exile in Belgium as a result. However, Congolese authorities have vowed to arrest him if he returns. Katumbi did not discuss how he planned to return to his native country. Katumbi’s new grouping received the backing of more than a dozen small opposition parties, which had sent delegates to the gathering in South Africa. The elections in the troubled central African country could theoretically pave the way to a historic transfer of power.
