The cause of the fire, which broke out overnight, has not been confirmed, and the scale of the damage is unclear. Black smoke could still be seen over the site, a warehouse building, on Thursday morning. The campaign to elect a successor to President Joseph Kabila on 23 December has been marred by deadly clashes. The president’s mandate ended in 2016, but elections have been repeatedly delayed.
