Kabila blamed violaitons of agreement

Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila on named a new transitional government, state television reported, defying opponents who rejected the cabinet, saying it violated a previous agreement.

Kabila, in power since 2001, struck a deal in December 2016 with Congo’s main opposition bloc to stay on after his mandate expired provided he held elections by the end of 2017. But talks to implement the deal broke down in March when Kabila refused to commit to the bloc’s choice of prime minister.
