I have my doubts about the emerging conventional wisdom that Tshisekedi will be subservient to Kabila and the FCC-controlled legislature for long. We tend to underestimate compromise candidates. Vaz in Guinea-Bissau, Lungu in Zambia, etc quickly dominated the political scene.

Leonard Hamilton straddles a world uniquely his own: old enough to remember a time when black head coaches were rare, but modern enough to lead an ACC program to the Elite Eight. My deep dive into one of the most fascinating people I’ve ever interviewed.

As we monitor and , it is important to mark how far the region has come. When Kabila leaves power, the average time in office will be 9 years. If Kabila (& Compaore, Jammeh, Dos Santos, Mugabe) had remained in power in 2019, the average time would have been 12 years.

Replying to @JpKayobotsi @hofrench
Domestic revenue IS better governance. It comes with more oversight/accountability from/to the people. And you have to have it anyway, even if it’s to pay off the loans. Internal governance is ultimately better than any external actor.

The and could be a potential alternative, but they both have moved away from critical areas like roads and core infra. Its China or national budget.
