Mr. Kabila ruled Congo for 18 years, working for the people with honesty and dedication, and stepping down post the 2018 elections, giving the country its first elected President.

the parallel elements are ruled and stepped down, the actions done by Mr.Kabila

"working for the people...dedication" is a modifier that modifies the previous clause- the modifier presents further information on how Mr.Kabila ruled Congo therefore should not be taken as a part of the parallelism list



A. stepping down post the 2018 elections, giving
stepping is not parallel

B. steps down post the 2018 elections and gives
the use of simple present tense to indicate an action that took place in the past is wrong

C. in stepping down post the 2018 elections to give
breaks the parallelism

D. stepped down post the 2018 elections to give
ruled and stepped down! exactly parallel! therefore the correct option.

E. steps down post the 2018 elections to give
same error as in option B.. the use of simple present tense to indicate an action done in the past is wrong

D is correct
