South Africa calls for calm ahead of the announcement of the official election results in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)

South Africa joins SADC, the AU and many other international organisations in awaiting the elections results to be announced by the Democratic Republic of

responsible and wait for the elections results from CENI.
