Startstone through its subsidiary UNICON CONGO continues to develop the construction of the large project on DSN university in Kintele (Brazzaville). There are currently more than 1,000 workers mobilised on the project as well as a great building infrastructure equipped with the most cutting-edge technological and technical resources. With the aim of attaining the opening target agreed with the Congolese government work is progressing at full speed.
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?

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...

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.
A new analysis of NASA satellite data shows that Africa's Congo rainforest, the second-largest tropical rainforest in the world, has undergone a large-scale decline in greenness over the past decade.The study, lead by Liming Zhou of University at Albany, State University of New York, shows that between 2000 and 2012, the decline affected an increasing amount of forest area and intensified. The research, published April 23 in Nature, is one of the most comprehensive observational studies to explore the effects of long-term drought on Congolese rainforests using several independent satellite sensors.Scientists use the satellite-derived "greenness" of forest regions as one indicator of a forest's health. While this study looks specifically at the impact of a persistent drought in the Congo re...
