The African Union and South Africa's president, Jacob Zuma, said there was almost nothing wrong. If, as is likely, Mr Mulunda declares Mr Kabila the winner, uprisings may break out in parts of Congo. “If Kabila returns to power he'll have to walk over our dead bodies,” said Palmer Kabeya, one of Mr Tshisekedi's backers outside the 78-year-old candidate's party headquarters in Kinshasa.

You might even hear a bit of hesitation in their voice. You can’t control everything.
