The current state of the DRC and the suffering of the Congolese people lies with President Tshisekedi. Even with the challenges the nation faces, the country is not on its knees as it is often portrayed by the media. It will take time, but the new government will need to assess its successes and failures year by year to course correct any wrongs and snuff out any perceived corruption.
When President Tshisekedi assumed the presidency of the African Union he seized an opportunity to show the world his commitment to a better DRC and a better Africa. The 2023 election is an opportunity to provide democracy and stabilization to the Congolese people. There will be challenges but with the help of the international community, the government and the people of the DRC can secure an election free from violence and corruption and chart a path to a better future.
