DR Congo's president faces challenges with appointment of new PM

President Tshisekedi's many challenges mount with appointment of Prime Minister Sylvestre Ilunga, an ally of the former president.

    Sylvestre Ilunga was appointed on Monday in the Democratic Republic of Congo under a political agreement between President Felix Tshisekedi and his predecessor.

    Nearly four months have passed since Tshisekedi became president, and some analysts say he's struggling to maintain political control.

    He's also inherited many of former President Joseph Kabila’s economic and social problems.
