joseph kabila outgoing sadc chair.jpgReports from Kinshasa say provisional results show that President Joseph Kabila has won the Democratic Republic of Congo’s presidential elections.

The head of the electoral commission, Daniel Ngoy Mulunda said President Kabila has obtained 49% of the vote against 32.3% for veteran opposition leader, Etienne Tshisekedi.

The announcement has been delayed since Tuesday, with election officials blaming logistical problems.

The opposition has complained of fraud and security is tight in the capital amid fears of violence.

The results still have to be ratified by the Supreme Court.
