Over a dozen people, including several police officers, are killed in protests in Kinshasa. The demonstrations were sparked by angry suspicions that President Kabila is trying to push back elections in a bid to illegitimately extend his mandate. Also, the issue of student fees in South Africa once again stirs up trouble. The government has given universities the right to hike them by up to 8%. Protests have already begun. And the language of the future: volunteers teaching students in Madagascar to code say it’s a vital life skill in an increasingly digital age and that there will come a time, not too far away, when those who don’t know their html from their java could be considered illiterate.

The UN is directing blame towards government leaders in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) for political tensions, which led to riots and deaths in the capital Kinshasa. Opponents of President Joseph Kabila believe he is laying the groundwork to delay elections due later this year to try and remain in power beyond his two-term mandate. On a continent where leaders are known for changing laws and constitutions to stay in power, does the world have the will to pull DRC back from the brink?

Located in northern DR Congo, construction of the mammoth structure began in 1977 under the leadership of dictator Mobutu Sese Seko. After the war in the DRC began in 1996, work ground to a halt. It never resumed. Al Jazeera's Sorin Furcoi and Azad Essa wandered into the extraordinary building, deep inside the bush outside Libenge in the DRC's Equateur province. Here's what they saw.

President Barack Obama delivered a speech in South Africa at the University of Cape Town on June 30th, 2013. In his speech, he mentioned the Congo a few times to remind South Africans the importance of bringing about peace in Congo. Sadly, his words should not be a celebration of possible action on the part of the US for peace in the Congo. This should motivate all justice seekers for peace in the Congo to press on the US government to stop supporting dictators in Rwanda and Uganda rather than continuing to give us lip service while mismanaging our tax money by providing military support to war criminals in Rwanda and Uganda.
