Guess who was Pope Francis's Guest this Monday September 26th 2016? Joseph Kabila of DRC - Wow

Pope Francis talks with Congo President Joseph Kabila during a private audience in the pontiff’s studio, at the Vatican, Monday, Sept. 26, 2016

Pope Francis's guest this day was no other than President Joseph Kabila of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Sources from Vatican says the Pope kept insisting in their 20 minutes brief meeting that Kabila and his government should use respectful dialogue to end violent clashes with opposition forces over delayed elections.

The Vatican source further revealed that the Pope didn't greet Kabila in the reception room as is his usual tradition to receive Heads of States, but rather waited for him in the library with a non cheerful face.

Clashes had erupted between security forces and demonstrators after Congo's electoral commission said November presidential vote wouldn't be possible and a court determined Kabila could stay in power until another election is organized.
