Lawmakers in the Democratic Republic of Congo have voted to remove the parliament’s speaker. BBC Africa reports that the result is a victory for President Félix Tshisekedi, who’s been involved in a power struggle with supporters of his predecessor, Joseph Kabila. The speaker, Jeanine Mabunda, was Kabila’s ally. She was impeached after being accused of “partisan leadership” by President Tshisekedi’s supporters – allegations she denied. The vote also saw the majority in parliament swing in favour of President Tshisekedi which he can now put into motion plans that he put forward last Sunday. They include forming a government which he said would allow him to deliver more to the Congolese people.
