Strangers in the Land: A Congolese Murder Case

A man walks down the street.
It's a street in a strange world.
Maybe it's the Third World.
Maybe it's his first time around.
He doesn't speak the language.
He holds no currency.
He is a foreign man.
He is surrounded by the sound.
The sound!
Cattle in the marketplace,
scatterlings and orphanages.
He looks around, around.

In Congo, the Tshisekedi No One Had Expected Takes Power
Felix Tshisekedi has emerged from his father's shadow to become Congo's next president. For decades that post eluded his father, the venerated opposition politician, Etienne, whose death in 2017 helped catapult his son into the limelight. The passage of power from father to son is a familiar story in Congo, where President Joseph Kabila took office at age 29 after the assassination of his father, Laurent, in 2001. He stayed on two years beyond his mandate amid delayed elections...

Italy Accuses France of ‘Impoverishing Africa’ as Migration Tensions Erupt
Comments by Italy’s deputy prime minister accusing France of 'impoverishing African countries’ have created a split between the two European nations. At the heart of the dispute is migration into Europe, following the deaths of hundreds of refugees in the Mediterranean Sea off Libya in recent days.
