    With just five days left to a presidential and legislative election in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, many voters in the capital city, Kinshasa, are not confident the polls will be credible.

    The election was due to take place on Sunday, but it was deferred by a week - to December 30 - because of technical and logistical reasons. It has already been delayed by two years.
