President Joseph Kabila came to power in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2001, taking over from his father, Laurent Kabila, who was assassinated by one of his own child soldier bodyguards. Joseph Kabila was initially credited with bringing relative peace and reviving the mining of the country's vast mineral reserves. But conflicts persist and millions of Congolese remain trapped in extreme poverty amid widespread allegations of corruption. His second and final constitutional mandate ended two years ago, but he stayed in power, amid growing protests and calls for him to step aside. Congolese are finally due to head to the polls on Sunday to choose a new leader.
