Congo's veteran president Denis Sassou Nguesso set to run anew in 2021

Congolese President Denis Sassou Nguesso has been chosen by his party to run again for the top job in 2021, having already led the central African country for a total of 35 years.

His re-election in 2016 sparked violence in a country where most of the five million people live below the poverty line despite huge oil reserves.
