Congo’s bishops renew call for national dialogue to avoid chaos

July 28, 2016

The bishops of the Democratic Republic of the Congo have issued a statement calling for respect for the constitution, respect for human rights, and a national dialogue in order to “avoid chaos.”

The statement comes one month after the bishops called for a national dialogue aimed at creating a timeframe for President Joseph Kabila to leave office rather than seek an unconstitutional third term.

The nation of 67.5 million is 53% Catholic.
