DRC and Kinshasa Security Overview
There is considerable instability in many regions within the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Crime and robbery including by individuals impersonating the local police is common. NGOs and Humanitarian workers are at increased risk of opportunistic attacks and kidnappings. Civil unrest is quite common in the DRC and many demonstrations can turn violent with little notice. Protests can cause major disruptions to journey plans due to the restrictions on movement.
The standard of driving in the DRC is very poor; the majority of drivers are uninsured and unqualified. The local driving community generally ignores road traffic safety and laws. The roads are inadequately marked and in poor condition, especially in rural areas where visibility is reduced. There is a high risk of road traffic collisions (RTCs) due to the poor driving conditions, unpredictable driving behavior, and inadequate infrastructure.
