Phoibe Kahambu is human rights rights defender and member of Lutte pour le Changement – LUCHA (Fight For Change). LUCHA is a non-violent and non-partisan youth civil society movement founded in June 2012 in Goma, the capital of North Kivu. The movement advocates for social justice and accountability in the DRC through campaigns, and encourages Congolese citizens to fight for the promotion and respect of human rights. In October 2016, President Joseph Kabila announced that the presidential elections would be postponed which would extend his 2-term mandate beyond constitutional limits. LUCHA and its members have been instrumental in organising civil society to call for the electoral calendar to be published in line with the constitution.
