Amid rainy weather, Democratic Republic of Congo’s outgoing President Joseph Kabila and his chosen successor, Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary, have voted in the country’s presidential election.
After voting, Kabila urged others to vote: “My message today to my compatriots is to come and vote for their candidates and brave the rain.”
Shadary called for “peace and calm,” adding “I am very confident in victory because the Congolese people will trust me, I campaigned all over the country.”
