Kabila to name prime minister within 48 hours

Mr Kabila is expected to step down by the end of the year

Congolese President Jospeh Kabila has just wrapped up a wide-ranging speech to MPs in the capital Kinshasa.

On the political front, he said that he will name a new prime minister in the next 48 hours, a post which is to be held by an opposition member as part of a deal brokered by the Catholic church.

Mr Kabila also committed to holding elections later in the year but did not give a date.
