The short list

I realize that most of you do not have the time to read all of the news sources I listed in the previous post. If you don’t, but still want to stay abreast of important events, the following is a short list.

Read Radio Okapi for daily news, and sign up for Google Alerts in English and French for “congo” or something similar. Read the daily news roundups by Congo Forum to get a feel for the Kinshasa press (or check out Africatime’s DRC website).

Read the regular reports posted by OCHA on the humanitarian situation, as well as reports by the International Crisis Group, HRW, the UN Group of Experts and MONUSCO’s Secretary-General reports. Don’t forget to follow the country’s political economy through Africa Mining Intelligence and Economist Intelligence Unit reports.
