Ray Nkosi | President Emmerson Mnangagwa today leaves for the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to visit the under siege government of Joseph Kabila.

Mnangagwa’s visit comes hours after Botswana’s Ian Khama called on Kabila to step down, stating in a statement, “the ministry of international affairs said the ‘worsening humanitarian situation’ in DRC is fulled by the fact that ‘its leader has persistently delayed holding elections, and has lost control over the security of his country’.

The state media reports that Mnangagwa will meet Kabila as he resumes his courtesy calls on fellow Heads of State and Government in the region to apprise them of political developments in Zimbabwe that culminated in the resignation of his predecessor Cde Robert Mugabe last November.

Presidential spokesperson Mr George Charamba yesterday said besides the courtesy call, the visit will see the two countries discussing bilateral relations.
