Kinshasa, DRC-The Archbishop of Kinshasa, Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo, said Monday, Dec. 12 during a press conference that the results of observations of the National Episcopal Conference of Congo (Cenco) “raise serious issue of credibility of presidential election.”

Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo, making his analysis of results published by the Independent National Electoral Commission (Ceni) Friday, December 9,  suggesting incumbent President Joseph Kabila to have won the election “it must be concluded that they are not truthful or justice.”

“We have all seen the pictures of the offices of Lubumbashi and Katanga,” he said referring to the case of polling stations on voting day burned by armed men who would have even won the polls.

But the archbishop of Kinshasa has protested towards any application to use illegal means of the call to engage in violence, saying that the results are preliminary and must be confirmed by Supreme Court.

Lack of credibility

In a statement issued Saturday, December 10; the Election Observation Mission of the Carter Center also felt that the results of the presidential elections announced by the Ceni, “Lacked credibility”.

NGOs problems posed by the building process, observed in Kinshasa and Lubumbashi, do not question the order of candidates announced as the difference of votes between them. This is explained Kara Baya to Radio Okapi, on behalf of the center founded by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter

    Cardinal Mosengo has really proved that he is a man of God.A man of God is supposed to tell the truths instead of lies. Congregatulation to You Cardinal Mosengo, for showing that you are a man of God and as a man of God you are to defend the main concerns of the people,in lieu of your own interests. We all know that the earthly powers have an end, yet we need to look forward for the people’s interests , and have to bear in mind that all the works of the wicked shall perish (Ps.1:6)and for all we have done on earth, God will bring us to judgement(Ecclesiaste 12:ff). And the judgement can even start from our eathly life.The earthly life is not eternal and its powers as well. why do we have to be selfish for ruling the country for 10 years , when we have been extremely rich,and yet people are tired of us.It is just vanity upon vanity, just step down and let Etienne rule also.
