What’s behind turmoil in DRC? | Inside Story

The Democratic Republic of Congo is braced for more violence after several people were killed in protests across the country.
On Thursday, thousands of protesters defied a ban on public gatherings to march against the nomination of a new election administrator – Ronsard Malonda.
They accuse Malonda of rigging previous polls in favour of the former President Joseph Kabila, who stepped down last year after 18 years in office.
So, how will this impact the ruling coalition?
And can any fallout be contained?
