In the Democratic Republic of Congo, political tensions persist. The term of current President Joseph Kabila will come to an end on December 19. With the elections being postponed, Kabila will stay in power beyond his term. The fear grows on the national and international level that this would lead to a worsening security situation in the country due to violent protests and repression.
In North Kivu, about 35 people died on Sunday, November 27, when Mai Mai rebels attacked Luhanga village in Lubero territory.

In the second quarter of 2016, the humanitarian situation in South Sudan remained critical, with the onset of the lean season, fighting and displacement in new locations, the spread of measles and the beginning of a cholera outbreak in June.
In October, WFP has almost doubled the number of people supported with food and cash-based assistance, across C.A.R., Cameroon, Chad, DRC and RoC, compared to September.
In October, further insecurity triggered new displacements and continues to affect humanitarian organizations, hampering their access to parts of C.A.R.
Batouri, 29 November 2016 - "I still do not know why the war is going on in our country, the Central African Republic," says Haman, a refugee from CAR living in the Ketté area, Eastern Cameroon. Haman lives in the little town of Boubara with his wife and five sons.
Haman is originally from the area of Berberati, close to the border with Cameroon. He had a quiet life and worked as a diamond miner in Carnot. He also took care of cattle including cows, goats and sheep as most of his countrymen did.
Violent protests broke out over the postponement of presidential polls between demonstrators and police forces on 19 & 20 September in Kinshasa. Opposition groups claimed that more than 50 people were killed, while the Government said 17 people died.
At least 680 civilians were killed in the 120 attacks in Beni territory since October 2014. Victims and witnesses described brutal attacks in which assailants methodically kill people with guns, axes and machetes. The actual number of victims could be much higher.
More than 7,500 refugees are now living in Zimbabwe’s Tongogara refugee camp in Chipinge. Without adequate and timely assistance, these refugees will not be able to sustain themselves. A partnership between the World Food Programme and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has helped them persevere and rebuild their shattered lives.
“The most important thing is that we're safe, we have shelter, the kids are going to school and we do not go to bed hungry,” says Catherine Hatangimana, a refugee who fled violence in Rwanda.
