Americans requested to leave Congo for safety reasons

The US Embassy in the Democratic Republic of Congo is warning the American citizens to leave the country, while Congolese officials prepare to announce election results.

The Embassy in Kinshasa posted an alert on January 9, which requested the Americans in Congo to draw departure plans that do not rely on US government assistance. It urged Americans to avoid large crowds and demonstrations, and continuously monitor local media for updates.

Congo‘s election commission has said it will announce results of the December 30th election at 11 p.m. local time on January, 9.
