Opposition supporters hold up placards reading 'Kabila - get lost' and 'Transition without Kabila' as they demonstrate outside the residence of the Union for Democracy and Social Progress party (UDPS - Union pour la democratie et le progres social) leader Felix Tshisekedi in Kinshasa on November 30, 2017, during a day of protest called for by the opposition parties to demand the departure of President Kabila. In power since 2001, Kabila's prolonged rule has already led to street protests and a bloody crackdown. Elections had been due to take place by the end of 2017 under a deal with the opposition aimed at avoiding bloodshed, but the date has since been pushed back until December 2018, further heightening tensions. / AFP PHOTO / JUNIOR KANNAH (Photo credit should read JUNIOR KANNAH/AFP/Getty Images)
