Hearth has gutted an electoral fee construction in Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, within the violent run-as much as a presidential vote.

The reason for the hearth, which broke out overnight, has no longer been showed, and the scale of the damage is uncertain.

Black smoke may still be noticed over the location, a warehouse development, on Thursday morning.

The campaign to opt for a successor to President Joseph Kabila on 23 December has been marred by deadly clashes.

The president’s mandate resulted in 2016, but elections have been again and again not on time.
