Congo’s opposition leader Etienne Tshisekedi has called for elections to be held this year and for the incumbent Joseph Kabila to step down on the 20th of December as scheduled.

Tensions have reportedly been growing in the mineral-rich state that Kabila, who has been in power since 2001, may try to extend his rule with a third term, beyond the constitutional maximum of two.

Speaking at a huge rally in Kinshasa, Tshisekedi warned him not to try, saying it would be “high treason” if the electoral process were not launched on schedule in September.
