KINSHASA -- Laurent Kabila received a hero's welcome in Kinshasa on Tuesday night, sweeping into the capital city by motorcade three days after his troops captured the city. Will the country will live up to its new name, the Democratic Republic of the Congo? New finance minister Mwana Nanga Mawampanga says that Kabila wants to hold multi-party elections within a year, a commitment supported by the United States and other Western nations. While Mawampanga issued a call for unity, he added that individuals who had been associated with overthrown President Mobutu are welcome.
