Kinshasa - DR Congo police banned a swearing-in ceremony on Friday for opposition leader Etienne Tshisekedi, who has refused to accept the recent re-election of President Joseph Kabila.

“It's banned. There is already an elected president who has been sworn in. We cannot have another swearing-in. It's an act of subversion,” a source close to the head of the country's police said. - Sapa-AFP
