A march is scheduled to occur in Bukavu (South Kivu province) on Monday, August 3, as teachers refuse to resume classes following continued delays in promised salary reforms. Participants will gather at 09:00 (local time) at Alfajiri college and march towards Labotte commune.
Further protests and associated disruptions are possible in the area in the near term.
The government's limited presence in the DRC's eastern provinces, as well as the presence of numerous armed groups and local self-defense militias, has led to continued insecurity in the area.
Those in South Kivu province are advised to remain vigilant for militant activity, monitor developments to the situation, and avoid all associated protests. Adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.
