Supporters of opposition leader Moise Katumbi are likely to gather in Kolwezi on Friday, July 26, amid Katumbi's visit to the city. Supporters are likely to gather at Kolwezi Airport (KWZ), and then march to the town's centre, despite a ban on gatherings issued a few days ago.
A heightened security presence along with localised transportation disruptions are likely; clashes between supporters and security forces are possible if supporters gather despite the ban.
Individuals in the DRC, particularly in Kolwezi, should monitor the situation, maintain a high degree of situational awareness, and avoid all rallies and demonstrations due to the risk of violence.
