Kinshasa Cardinal Fridolin Ambongo Besungu called for the government to stop the influx of people from neighbouring countries into the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
He said on January 3 that this immigration stirs anger among the local population and is a source of friction.
Ambongo identified the problem in those “who are arriving and are trying to be passed off as Congolese." This confirms for him that “there is a balkanisation plan" for his country.
Europe and the United States are facing similar problems.
