7 months after, Etienne Tshisekedi yet to be buried [The Morning Call]

Nearly seven months after his death in Brussels, veteran Congolese opposition politician Etienne Tshisekedi has not been buried.

With his remains still in Brussels , Belgium, delays and controversy have trailed funeral arrangements laid out for him.

Tshisekedi before his death was set to lead a transitional council, part of an agreement put together in December,

intended to pave the way for president Joseph Kabila to leave power in 2017 and refrain from running for a third term as president.

His death and departure from the political scene in the DRC is widely seen as a huge blow to the opposition against Joseph Kabila who has now overstayed office

nearly a year after the expiration of his term and without elections in sight.
