It is finally done! At the very least, on the legal front, the Congo has stepped into a new era. This is a historic day, a day for the books.

Now let us see if the notoriously egocentric politicians in this sub-continent, will follow through with consistant commitment to democracy... but we will cross that bridge when it's time. For now, long live the Congo! Posted by Picasa

He is a strikingly handsome young Dude, isn't he? If he is elected Presdient in June, will this make him the youngest democratically-elected leader in Africa?

Let's hope that he can finally get the job done in the Congo this time around, with or without his various constituents from the International Community.
