Traders are facing difficulties in sending supplies to Kinshasa, aggravating the unstable food situation in the city, WFP said in its latest emergency weekly report. Food deliveries from the port of Matadi and from food production areas are limited due to military activities and transporters have been advised not to enter the city later than 6 p.m., the report said. Traders, who estimate that food stocks in the market will be exhausted at the end of January, have requested government subsidies to stabilize food and fuel prices, the report said.
