Congolese on Peace

In November, Gallup interviewed 1000 citizens of the Democratic Republic of Congo about the possibility of peace. For security reasons, none were in the eastern part where most of the actual conflict takes place.

63% believed that peace was possible within 12 months (not from now, but from Nov). A slim majority (51%) believe their government is the primary agent responsible for creating that peace, one-third focus on the president himself, and only 14% think the UN will make peace happen. Congolese views of Rwanda are ... not positive.
