Opposition militants in the Democratic Republic of the Congo called for a strike this week to protest at the banishment of their populist leader, Etienne Tshisekedi, from the capital, Kinshasa. Such a strike could lead to a clash with forces of President Laurent Kabila, who has banned political activity since seizing power in the former Zaire last May.
