The Democratic Republic of Congo’s President Félix Tshisekedi held a rare meeting with his predecessor Joseph Kabila amid tension in their coalition. The BBC reports that the two leaders discussed “the progress of the coalition”, the Common Front for Congo coalition wrote on Twitter. Despite winning the presidency, Tshisekedi has had to come to an accommodation of Kabila’s party, which controls the majority of seats in parliament. The meeting between the DRC’s president Tshisekedi and former president Kabila did little to calm the tension that has been rising for months and “points of contention” remain, the two camps told AFP news agency on Monday.
