    The defence of a doctoral thesis

    The subject is growing on all languages. The fact, it seems fashionable. Without question, this is the defence of a doctoral thesis. Far from the very scientific field where this praiseworthy and free exercise to anyone can succeed hands down, now is the political sphere bubbling. Defended on 3 February 2018 at the Protestant University in the Congo, the thesis of former Prime Minister Matata seems to be, now, in the eye of the storm. This, especially after the spectacular resignation of Professor Mabi Mulumba from the presidency of the Doctoral School of the UPC. This act of a scientific size whose figure is school in the closed circle of enthusiasts of the economy pushes more than one to a deep reflection. Respectable as the man with the red tie, an economist with talents recognised especially with his passage to the Premature, the resignation of Mabi Mulumba is, for some feathers and observers, stain of oil.

    Why did not he defend this thesis to his original alma mater, namely, Unikin? Why only now? These issues emerge from the drawers in the light of Professor Mabi’s decision. Thus, for some intelligence, never a doctoral thesis would have made as much talk about it in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Is it related to the person or the thesis that was discussed? Will be questioned.

    Various appreciations

    The most obvious is that the defence organised on February 3, 2018 around the doctoral thesis of Matata Ponyo Mapon, Honorary Prime Minister, was not appreciated by all. Much earlier, the Protestant University in Congo (UPC) has received pressure of all kinds to delay the defence of this scientific work. It was finally objectively, despite all the interference that the UPC had decided to program this public defence. And the public who responded on February 3, 2018 has been well served by both the scientific quality of the work and the quality of the debate. But, that’s not as much as Matata’s detractors disarmed. A few days after the defence of this thesis, the highly respected professor Evariste Mabi Mulumba has just resigned from the presidency of the doctoral school of the UPC. He justifies his decision with “irregularities” which, in his opinion, had surrounded the programming and organisation of the jury in defense of Matata’s doctoral thesis. Of course, one can only bend to the will of Professor Mabi, given his aura in the Congolese scientific world, especially in matters relating to economics. But, beyond the intrusion of the teacher, there are many questions that can be asked. Because, to see more closely, never a thesis has aroused so many passions. Never has a thesis been so commented on in the news. So, we are forced to ask a question: how does Matata’s thesis hurt?

    Well chiselled thesis

    From the scientific point of view, it should be noted that Matata’s thesis, which focused on the quality of budgetary adjustment and growth over the 1974-2015 period, has nothing to do with any controversy policy. Otherwise, the very famous professor James Allan Robinson of the University of Chicago in the United States, ranked among the next Nobelisables in economics, would not have made the trip to Kinshasa to endorse a trickery. Another great name of the economy, Professor Chicot Eboué of the University of Nancy in France – the rest – co-promoter of the Matata thesis – could not, either, be found on Saturday, February 3, 2018 to support a job that was not scientifically correct. That is to say that by staying strictly in economics, the doctoral thesis of Matata is justified in every respect. If this is the case, it is necessary to seek, perhaps, elsewhere the reason for all the agitation surrounding this thesis. So much agitation that is by no means scientific. Because, on this specific plane, the doctoral thesis of Matata holds and resists criticism, from end to end. The only possible way to understand this rage is the political terrain where Matata has more enemies than followers. Indeed, since the Ministry of Finance until his glory years at the Primature, Matata has not only made sympathizers. The economic success he has lined up between 2010 and 2015 has surrounded the ardor of his political family, the Presidential Majority. It was the same MP who sought by all means to torpedo his action, while he accumulated good results during his management of the central government. It is this same Presidential Majority, which is also agitating to dirty it on the scientific level, having missed it on the political ground.

    In tempore suspecto

    We must not forget that within the MP, there are divisions that seek by all means to position their counter in the optics where the political family of the Head of State was obliged to find a dolphin to his moral authority, President Kabila, to the next presidential election. On the list of personalities more and more cited, Matata would be in very good place. This explains all the speckled arrows launched against him to splash, in particular presenting him as a cheater and, therefore, not entitled to exercise the presidential office. Admittedly, the resignation of Professor Mabi is an administrative act to be placed in the normal framework of the functioning of the Protestant University in Congo. But, this act has obvious political ramifications. It is not an isolated act. It is part of a thoughtful political scheme where the teacher could have been used only as part of a big puzzle that will not stop at the only doctoral thesis of the UPC. Other lows against Matata are in the making. The aim is to disqualify him from the probable race for the dolphin-ate. Without doubt, the UPC who feels offended by this act will not fail to react to restore its credibility. When politics comes into the world of science, every move is allowed.

    Congolese natural resources at the price of bread

    The Country’s natural resources at the price of bread……

    Robert Crem, former CEO of LA, launches this terrible warning:

    Are we aware that we are selling $ 300 billion worth of mineral reserves by the greatest modern time scam?

    I was astonished and shocked by learning that the congolese executive had, in contradiction with any logic of reorganization, made the accelerated dismantling of LA.

    It has granted mining polygons in disregard of the criteria of technical competence, financial areas, and this for the benefit of unskilled operators and adventurers with dubious methods. I couldn’t stay indifferent.

    So I began by writing to the head of state, and I had suggested an audit procedure to ensure the full and sincere nature of the partnership offers, and to avoid the bankruptcy of mining exploitation with its national consequences. . This exercise also conditioned the international credibility of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

    Since dismantling is not done by powerful mining groups, but from “Non-Mining Adventurers”, I had advised to suspend all privatisation agreements and renegotiate them. The deposits disposed of should be placed under state-controlled management, pending the results of the expertise of the provisionally suspended agreements. Similarly, the report of the commission should be taken into account.

    But I had not received a reaction from the presidency of the Republic. Ditto, for a second letter. That is why I addressed the intellectuals and the press of the rd Congo to raise public debate on this issue. I have made proposals for the Republic, regardless of foreign interests. I’m taking my words. And I will continue to do so.

    At this stage, if my message has been received by the Congolese media, there is a conspicuous lack of interest in the political class that ensures the succession of the mobutu system, but worse. There is a question for me: is there a policy for power, and determined to defend the country? The other question is whether or not the sons and daughters of this country are their leaders.

    Agreement and the end of the Congolese political and electoral crisis

    To the question of how far will the Catholic bishops go, an answer is now at the end of the lips. It’s all the way to the fight for the implementation of the New Year’s Eve Agreement and the end of the Congolese political and electoral crisis. After having proclaimed it in its declaration sanctioning its last extraordinary assembly, CENCO has just proved it by recommending to the Congolese people not to be afraid to continue to claim, by the marches of the CLC, the advent of a State of right in Congo-Kinshasa. In a document signed yesterday by Father Donatien N’shole in response to the events of 25 February, CENCO delivers its record of the scuffles observed is clear. “CENCO congratulates all compatriots who have mobilized peacefully, refusing any provocation to violence, to make their voices heard for the advent of a truly democratic state … It recommends to the Congolese people to remain standing and vigilant and to do not give in to fear or resignation, “said the statement.

    Impartiality

    Like Monusco, who regretted, by Leila Zerrougui, the death of a man despite the assurances of the “zero death” operation launched by the Congolese National Police, CENCO the heavy pen of these losses, in his document, condemned the use of force against unarmed Christian walkers. Once again, the National Episcopal Conference of Congo does not want to be a part of the political class. Thus the princes of the Catholic Church who report 16 well-framed marches out of 149 do not prevent, in any way, to salute these police officers and their superiors who have acted professionally. Because, before and above all, they are called to be Republican. “We condemn the use of force against compatriots, some of whom have died and others tortured or wounded when they have not done anything contrary to the fundamental law that governs the country. However, we salute the republican and patriotic sense of those of the security forces who framed 16 marches according to the law, “says CENCO.

    Balance sheet and denunciations

    The General Secretariat of CENCO, headed by Fr Donatien N’shole, received information about the organization in Kinshasa and some provinces of 149 peaceful marches, 66 of which were smothered in parish premises, 67 dispersed by bullets and gas tear. According to the monitoring carried out by the services of the General Secretariat of CENCO, the assessment of the day of the march of 25 February reported 2 dead by bullets, 32 wounded, 13 by bullets and 76 arrests. The Catholic bishops’ conference reports that during the march in many parishes it was reported the presence of several young strangers who worked to incite the demonstrators to skids. Moreover, following the case of the assault on the Notre Dame du Congo Cathedral by PPRD youths known as “red berets”, the National Episcopal Conference of Congo denounces the instrumentalisation of young people by certain political parties. It is worth remembering that the steps called by the Laïc Coordination Committee are intended to demand the full implementation of the New Year’s Eve Agreement for the holding of credible and inclusive elections in order for the Congolese political crisis to take hold end.

    Technical Operational Issues of the Congolese Electoral process

    * Alternation pour la Republique (AR) exchanges with the CENI around the technical-operational issues of the Congolese electoral process

    The consultations between the Independent National Electoral Commission and the political parties and groups of the Opposition and the Majority around the electoral process, particularly on techno-operational issues, resumed this Tuesday, February 27, 2018 at the headquarters of this body in charge of the organization of elections in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

    The decisive progress made by the National Independent Electoral Commission in the implementation of the electoral calendar, the challenges to be met as well as certain specific questions that deserve a light have been at the center of this exchange.

    The President of the CENI, His Excellency Corneille NANGAA YOBELUO, accompanied by the members of the Plenary Assembly, reviewed the activities carried out so far, including the closing on 31 January 2018, of the operation of revision of the electoral register which reveals raw statistics of 46,057,894 registered voters. Among the activities in progress, the President of the CENI has put forward in particular the processing and consolidation of the data of the voters enlisted to ensure the respect of the principle of the uniqueness of the voter in the electoral register. The elaboration and adoption of the electoral law enforcement measures as well as the elaboration of the terms of reference and prospection of the sites to house the registration centers of the consular and diplomatic spaces for the recruitment of Congolese residing abroad .

    The discussions between the two parties focused on the specific concerns of the voting machine, the involvement of international panels, the audit of the electoral roll, the 2015 election guarantee for the provincial deputation, and the prospecting and locating sites for the registration of Congolese living abroad.

    The Honorable Delly SESSANGA who led the strong delegation of Alternation for the Republic, AR in acronym, welcomed the progress of the electoral process. Its platform is preparing since May 2016 to participate actively in the next elections. This unshakeable determination is reflected in particular by the establishment of an electoral platform.

    This consultation framework enabled the Alternance pour la République to experiment with the voting machine and to carry out a guided visit of the CENI National Treatment Center (CNT) to observe the work of qualitative processing of the electoral register as well as the ad hoc server.

    With regard to the voting machine, Alternance pour la République has reservations about the reliability of this tool, particularly at the level of technical parameters. From there, the solicitation of the Platform to the multiplication of large-scale reliability tests, the establishment of a team of experts to guarantee the integrity of the results or even reflections for introduction by palliate and perhaps in the big cities of the voting machine.

    The Honorable Delly SESSANGA also invites the CENI to safeguard the right and freedom to vote of voters as well as the preservation of its independence vis-à-vis all institutions. Reclaiming the trust of all stakeholders was also desired.

    EMMANUEL RAMAZANI SHADARY

    He will not have had the time to rest his head on his laurels after the Vice-Prime Minister in charge of the Interior and Security. Yesterday, indeed, he was appointed Permanent Secretary General of the People’s Party for Reconstruction and Democracy, PPRD, major political formation of the Presidential Majority. This appointment sounds in political circles as the confirmation of a mark of confidence on the part of the President of the Republic which places him there to a position of choice in the PPRD, political party which is dear to him, in this pre-election period to multiple outlines and stakes. Political analysts, for their part, question the bottom of the strategic changes Mova-Ramazani Shadary by these times. Is ! The speculations will go in all directions. Never mind, the peculiarity of his coming, what he does after the recent revision of the statutes of this political party. “The decision was made by the leader of the party, President Joseph Kabila,” said a close friend of Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary. Who is he really? What is his curriculum? In short, his CV full version? Prosperity offers you, in the lines that follow, a robot portrait of the new SG-permanent PPRD.

    EMMANUEL RAMAZANI SHADARY: PORTRAIT OF A CHEVRONNE IN THE MOST POLITICAL AND TERRITORIAL

    Five months after the independence of the Belgian Congo, that is to say, a certain November 29, 1960, a baby is born from the matrimonial union of fathers Bakali Ramazani and Sifa Tabu, more precisely in Kasongo. We are in the grouping of Kilunguyi, Bangubangu area, Kabambare territory, Maniema province. The Bakali couple decides to give his male baby the name of Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary.

    Already, to observe his reflexes and gestures immediately after his birth, a midwife who was helping Mom Sifa Tabu exclaimed: “he will be very awake and very intelligent”. The oracle of the midwife was realized when at the end of his primary studies in 1974, he achieved 86.4% to obtain his certificate which serves as a visa to begin secondary school. Here again, Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary confirms the prophecy of the midwife of Kasongo by completing his pedagogical humanities with 73%.

    Winner of his school, Ramazani Shadary is admitted to the University of Lubumbashi at the Faculty of Social, Administrative and Political Sciences. From the first cycle to the second, he graduated in 1987 with five distinctions. It is therefore nicknamed “blow by blow” by his contemporaries. It is with the distinction highest distinction that he finishes his third cycle in political science and administration at the University of Kinshasa where he is a doctoral student since 2015. French, Lingala, Swahili and English (medium) are the languages ​​of choice.

    Married to Mrs. Wivin Paipo Ngweli, Emmanuel Shadary is the father of 8 children and has a long experience behind him. This, as assistant and director general of higher education and university, actor of the civil society in Maniema and the sovereign national conference, administrator of territory assistant, then administrator of titular territory, vice-governor then governor of Maniema (1998-2001 ) under Mzee Laurent Désiré Kabila. A co-founder member of the PPRD in 2002, he became National Executive Secretary in charge of the electoral process and discipline from 2005 to 2015.

    In 2006 and 2011, he was twice elected national deputy in the Kabambare constituency. During the same period, he is the campaign director of the presidential candidate Joseph Kabila in Maniema. Vice-President (2006 – 2011) then President of the PAJ Committee of the National Assembly, he will then assume the functions of the Vice-President and Chairman of the PPRD parliamentary group, coordinator of the parliamentary majority in the lower house of parliament .

    On May 17, 2015, as a reward for his merits and successes in political crises, the one still nicknamed “coup sur coup” or “the man of the difficult situations” is designated Deputy General Secretary of the PPRD by his Initiator, Joseph Kabila Kabila. In the dialogues of the city of the African Union and the CENCO, he is designated head of the delegation of the presidential majority and plays a leading role with the participation of others of his comrades to arrive at the formation of the government of national unity. In favor of this government, he is appointed, under Samy Badibanga and reappointed under Bruno Tshibala, as Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of the Interior and Security. Function that he will assume until February 20, 2018 before being replaced by Henri Mova Sakanyi. 14 months after taking office at this ministry, it leaves a praiseworthy record on the safety plan by reducing the centers of tension or eliminating them completely. And politically, it has the merit of having defended the electoral law in the Congolese parliament, law that will bring in a few months, the country in free, democratic and transparent elections.

    It is this Monday, February 26, 2018 that party initiator Joseph Kabila Kabange appointed him on his decision as permanent secretary of the PPRD responsible for managing the party on a daily basis and preparing for the upcoming elections.

    Humanitarian crisis in the DRC

    The international community has decided to organize an international donor conference. Indeed, it will be held on April 13, 2018 in Geneva, Switzerland. It should be noted here that this international donor conference is not the result of a spontaneous generation: men and women worried about the situation of humanitarian catastrophe that rages in Greater Kasai, Tanganyika and Grand Kivu have militated on its behalf and mobilised for this the ban and backbenches of the international community and the humanitarian world. The idea is part of Samy Badibanga.

    At the time he was Prime Minister, the elected official of Kinshasa / Mont-Amba had measured the extent of the damage. The country has 13 million people in need of humanitarian aid for the year 2018, which places the DRC at the UNOCHA level 3/3 humanitarian emergency. There are 8.5 million people in severe food insecurity. As for the displaced, they are more than 1.5 million in Kasaï, 1,000,000 in Kivu and more than 500,000 in Tanganyika (evolutionary figures).

    To provide assistance to all these people, needs have been estimated at US $ 1.68 billion by UNHRP. However, the experience of 2017 was worrying. Indeed, out of a total in need of funding expected of 812 million US dollars, only 424 million were disbursed (only 52%), which exposes millions of people to precariousness, even to death.

    Having left the prime minister, Mr. Badibanga knows better than anyone that the DRC can not finance the humanitarian needs, with such a small budget and a huge part to be devoted to the electoral process. He then decides to act on this subject which, he assures him, was so dear to his heart. As a citizen, in addition to being a national deputy, he made contact with Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya, Archbishop of Kinshasa, and Pastor Bokundoa, President of the Church of Christ in Congo, ECC, in order to undertake an international lobbying campaign. global level. He succeeded in bringing them together with other civil society organizations in a structure called “L’Espoir”, of which he is coordinator.

    In December 2017, L’Espoir made its first joint declaration signed by Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo and Pastor Bokundoa, presenting the catastrophic humanitarian situation of the country and calling for the organization of an international donor conference. “We had to act quickly. In 2016, the Central African Republic, which has fewer problems than us, had yet secured pledges of 2.2 billion US dollars. As a citizen, anyone who is notorious and an address book can mobilize for the organization of such a conference, and we did, “said the member for Kinshasa / Mont-Amba.

    Samy Badibanga then took the road to the capitals that count: from Brussels to Washington, passing through London, Paris and New York, he met the world among the leaders of the political and humanitarian world and carries out a diplomatic action in favor of the Congolese. need for humanitarian assistance. At the same time, Cardinal Monsengwo and Pastor Bokundoa continue, each on their side, the lobbying campaign. All these actions converged towards the same goal: to obtain the organization of an international conference of the donors in order to reunite the financing necessary for the implementation of the humanitarian action and the rehabilitation up to 1.68 billion US dollars as provided for in the UNOCHA Humanitarian Response Plan.

    The decision to organise this conference and to set the date for the 13th of April 2018 is a proud tribute to its coordinator Samy Badibanga and his main partners in the Coordination l’Espoir, Cardinal Monsengwo and Pastor Bokundoa for a noble mission.

    DRC is home to more than 60% of the Congo Basin's dense forests

    No more confusion. The thorny issue of “illegal attribution” of logging concessions to Chinese firms in violation of the 2002 moratorium has finally been sufficiently enlightened. It was shown, black and white, yesterday, Tuesday, February 27, 2018 in a press briefing by Mr. José Elanga, Forest General Manager, that there was no illegality in the granting but rather in the approval of the titles because of a far-fetched confusion of the statutes that have been found in the lot of the titles hit by the moratorium. It was at the Botanical Garden of Kinshasa under the aegis of the Minister of Environment and Sustainable Development, Amy Ambatobe here prevented.

    Accompanied by Mr. Sébastien Malele and Frederic Djengo respectively, Forest Expert Director and Director of the Forest Management Department, Mr. José Elanga has raised all ambiguity on this subject which some foreign experts have made a scandalous worldwide affair. First, the reallocation of such concessions does not constitute a violation of the moratorium on DRC forests. Congo. Because, after the assessment of the activities of the concessionaires, if the Congolese State noticed a failure in the latter, the same Congolese State is, according to the law, entitled to take back the titles and to return them to other concessionaires . It should be noted here that the moratorium concerns forest concessions not yet exploited. Therefore, the forest concessions, which are already under exploitation, are not affected by the moratorium.

    Indeed, the new Forest Code Act was promulgated in 2002 and was followed by another moratorium in the same period. The objective was to grant new forest concessions throughout the Democratic Republic of Congo. This, with the firm ambition to clean up the industrial logging sector.

    And to give more weight to this decision, the Head of State had taken care to publish a decree setting the terms of the old forest titles. And at the big question of whether this moratorium should finally be maintained or lifted, the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, which is headed by Dr. Amy Ambatobe, is currently in the process of launching the process of lifting the moratorium.

    However, the fixed period for remediation of the industrial logging sector was 3 years. And in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the duration was 16 years. It is on the basis of that that these decisions were made. Thus, after going through the process of conversion and remediation, the authority decided to start the process of lifting the moratorium.

    The decree had, above all, 3 conditions. First, the proclamation of results, then the effective termination of contracts that did not respect the criterion, and the most important is the geographical programming of future allocations. To date, the lifting of the moratorium is conditioned by the realization of this programming.

    Currently, the Ministry that initiated the reflection process will publish the results of Bandundu to affirm, among other things, that it is possible to start the process in Bandundu through a better mastery of knowledge of resources. And after that it will be in the other provinces where the multi-resource inventory is in progress, in the former Ecuador and the province of Tshopo.

    In October 2017, Greenpeace and a group of experts conducted a communication campaign on peatlands covering 145,000 km2 of a marshy area between Congo-Brazzaville and the DRC, an area slightly larger than the England.

    The DRC is home to more than 60% of the Congo Basin’s dense forests, the second largest tropical forest in the world after the Amazon. The country has the second largest tropical forest in the world (86 million hectares).

    As for peat bogs, they are not under any threat, as the areas where they live are not geographically exploitable. In conclusion, the peat bogs are not in danger.

    The Training Congolese Sports Cadres

    The lessons at the National Institute of Sports (INS), take the cruising speed with the arrival very soon, foreign teachers from Tunisia, Morocco and Belgium in the framework of Olympic solidarity. The director of this school training Congolese sports cadres, Zénon Kabamba Kasongo announced yesterday, Tuesday, February 27, 2018, during an interview with the press, at its headquarters Tata Raphael Stadium, two months after the official opening of the 2017-2018 teaching year.

    Zénon Kabamba said he was satisfied with the course, two months later, with the very noticeable presence of military and police learners, who understood, he said, that sport is part of the performance of men in uniform. The Director of NSI also welcomed the presence among the learners, experts of Secondary and Professional Primary Education (EPSP), who also understood that the modules of physical education teaching in schools must be adapted to the teachings given at the National Sports Institute. There are also leaders of Federations, Leagues and Agreements who have registered, and are deepening their knowledge.

    Like any public institution of education, the INS organizes so far, two streams, namely: the academic stream and the professional stream that make two options within it. The option of management of structures and sports skills (Management and Sports Administration); and the technical option of high level training.

    The academic stream, it should be noted, organizes a training of three to five years for the administrative staff, sanctioned by a diploma in science of sport, while the vocational stream gives a three-year training for a professional diploma of high level. Y are trained, first level coaches with a youth coaching certificate; second level coaches with a certificate of assistant coaches; third level coaches with a certificate of coaches A; and the coaches of the fourth level with the coaching coaches’ certificate B as a national coach. And also, the referees and the officials of the competitions.

    The distribution of the teachings

    The courses in the academic field are subdivided into five departments each comprising a few sections. There are among others: the department of management and administration of sports; the department of entertainment animation; the adapted sports department; the Department of Sports Medicine and the Department Teaching and Aggregation in Sport. In the vocational sector, the courses are divided into four departments: the coaching department, the referees department and the competition officials, the detection and orientation department and the high competition department.

    United Nations regrets the death of two people killed in Kinshasa and in Mbandaka

    Despite the “zero death” operation launched by the PNC – on the sidelines of the marches called by the Lay Committee of Coordination, on February 25, 2018, there was death of man. Monusco regrets that. Leila Zerrougui, new representative of the UN Secretary-General in the DRC, confided this feeling through a statement from Monusco signed last Sunday evening. “The Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ms. Leila Zerrougui, regrets that at least two people were killed today, one in Kinshasa and one in Mbandaka,” the statement said. The United Nations Mission in Congo-Kinshasa, by its voice, keeps in mind that only the holding of the elections and thus the alternation will be able to leave Congo-Kinshasa of the current crisis. And, since the New Year’s Eve Agreement remains the accepted roadmap for achieving life-saving electoral contests in the country, Leila Zerrougui calls on all political actors to play a constructive role in its implementation.

    “Leila Zerrougui (ed) calls on all Congolese political actors to play a constructive role in the implementation of the Political Agreement of December 31, 2016, which remains the only viable path leading to the holding of elections, a peaceful alternation in power and the consolidation of stability in the DRC, “says the Monusco press release, a copy of which has reached Prosperity.

    The replacement of Mother Sambo Sidikou at the head of the UN Mission recalls, moreover, that all parties to the conflict must exercise restraint and not resort to violence, while stressing the importance of respecting the rights of the Congolese people. freedom of expression and the right to demonstrate peacefully. Newly appointed head of the UN mission in the DRC, it must be said that this new representative of the UN Secretary-General in the DRC has just received her first baptism of fire in the observation and management, by the agencies of the Monusco , a march convened by the Lay Committee of Coordination.

    Balance sheet

    The United Nations Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo draws up a death toll of two dead, 47 wounded and a hundred arrests. “The Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General, Ms. Leila Zerrougui regrets that at least two people were killed today, one in Kinshasa and one in Mbandaka, during the marches called by the Laity Coordination Committee despite instructions given to the security forces to exercise the utmost restraint in the management of the demonstrations. The observation teams of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in the DRC also reported 47 wounded and more than 100 arrests throughout the country, “she says.

    Investigation required

    As usual, MONUSCO calls on the authorities to conduct a serious and credible investigation into reported incidents and, furthermore, to take actionable sanctions. It must be said that with the sanctions of the international community and thus the indexation of some figures of Kinshasa as tormentors of human rights, the authorities have been quick to try to send clear signals to this effect. It is in this way that the arrest of the alleged policeman who fired on the deceased Rossy Mukendi is perceived.

    The Catholic parish of Saint Vincent de Paul located on the edge of two Ngiri-Ngiri and Kalamu / Kimbangu communes on Elengesa Avenue, responded to the call of the Lay Committee of Coordination (CLC) on the march of 25 February 2018, supported and supported by the Fathers Bishops and Archbishops, members of the National Episcopal Conference of Congo (CENCO). It was repressed by a contingent of the Congolese National Police who intervened by preventing the demonstrators from continuing their march. And yet, the demonstrators led by the priestly team of the parish at the head of which, Father Simon Zindo, parish priest and Deacon Jean Yongo, have just beat the tarmac over a distance of about 200 meters. Since always and as it has become a habit, the crossing Mompono and Elengesa is the place of retaliation where very often the demonstrators are dispersed without resistance to avoid the clash which could lead to the loss of human lives. Father Zindo simply asked the crowd that was accompanying him to turn back, which was done smoothly. However, some non-Catholic youth organized themselves in their way to barricade the road and burn tires. They were quickly dispersed by another armored police armor that fired tear gas and bullets into the air.

    It all started with Sunday Mass co-celebrated by Fr Zindo and Deacon Yongo. In his exhortation, Deacon Yongo dwelled on the transfiguration of Jesus Christ. As a subsistence, Jesus Christ called Peter, John, and James to go and pray on the mountain. All of a sudden, as Jesus prayed, his sweat turned to blood. He was already seeing death approaching. Lesson to shoot, it is through this blood that “we are purified”. Therefore, the Officiant concluded, “Let’s not turn away from the blood of Christ, which is a way of purification. Every time we go to Mass, we go to the mountains to seek the face of Christ “. With regard to the suffering and miseries that plague the DRC, the OFFICER reassures by saying that the Congolese does not lose hope because the Congo, which is a blessed gift of God, will sooner or later be saved and recovered its nobility.

    In addition, he urged the Congolese to cultivate a sense of unshakeable faith and hope for God. Like Abraham who had received the gift of Isaac from God, despite the advanced age of his wife Sarah; God had asked for this one son as a sacrifice. By willingly accepting the request, God offered him an alternative instead of sacrificing the son. Since then, Abraham was the father of the multitude.

    The Transition Without Joseph Kabila

    The Asadho, African Association of Human Rights, does not change its tune. For her, the people must continue to put pressure on the current power, with public demonstrations, until the Transition Without Kabila, TSK. The latter would allow DRC Congo to get real elections. This is the point of view of Jean-Claude Katende, president of this structure, in an interview with your newspaper yesterday, Monday, February 26, 2018, the day after the march organised by the Committee of Lay Coordination.

    “If we really want elections in DRC Congo, it would be necessary to create favorable conditions which will mark the way of these polls. However, since most of these prerequisites, including freedom of expression, the right to demonstrations or the easing of the political climate, are still not respected, it is therefore impossible for Congo-Kinshasa to live worthy electoral contests. and just, “said the president of Asadho. “That’s why, I doubt very much about holding these elections. Because, these facts show that the Power in place does not want polls, “he added. For him, the Power, to this day, does everything except what was agreed in the New Year’s Eve Agreement that its members have voluntarily signed at the Center interdiocésain before the Bishops of CENCO, the godfathers said compromise. Even worse, the Ceni, which, according to his remarks, is an affidavit of the MP, still concurs in the sharpness of the divergences with this question of the voting machine which loosens tongues of all kinds. “In other words, in order for there to be elections in our country, it is important that, at the national and international levels, the pressure be put on President Kabila, Government and CENI, mainly Corneille Nangaa, “he said. “Because these markets are important and contribute strongly in the process of rapid alternation in the country,” is one of his key opinions.

    In this sense, Jean-Claude Katende has invited the Congolese to awareness to fight, in absolute terms, the current regime until his departure. He went on to say that “it is the determination of every Congolese who can compel those who have illegally and illegitimately taken the power to leave the management lever”.

    As for the various appeals of the International Community for concessions between politicians, this human rights defender has maintained that this time is over. This, because, according to him, they face bad faith interlocutors who do not respect their commitments, referring to the MP. Moreover, he recalled that the discussions of CENCO were not the first among the political class. The annals indicate that there was, for example, the national consultations in 2014 of which only one recommendation, that of the establishment of a Government of National Union, about thirty resolutions was applied. “Is it with this group of people that we can still sit down and find a consensus? It’s impossible! “, He insisted.

    Moise katumbi mercenaries case

    DRC: In pro-Katumbi mercenaries case, justice and intelligence services contradict each other.The “presence” of mercenaries around the opponent Moïse Katumbi back “from November 2015,” according to a confidential report of the National Intelligence Agency (ANR). The prosecution, he, locates the facts a year earlier.
    In the DRC, security services and parquet are they mixing brushes? In any case, in the so-called “mercenaries” case, the head of the dreaded National Intelligence Agency (ANR) and the Attorney General of the Republic do not seem to be on the same line when it is necessary to locate the time of the ‘offence.

    In a confidential document entitled “Updated Investigation Report on the Recruitment of Mercenaries by Mr. Katumbi Chapwe Moses”, sent on 16 December 2016 to the Attorney General of the Republic – with a copy to, among others, Joseph Kabila, Head of State – and of which Jeune Afrique was able to consult some excerpts this Monday, April 9, the ANR recalls the facts and places them towards the end of the year 2015.

    “From November 2015” …
    “After the resignation of Mr. Katumbi Chapwe Moïse, on September 29, 2015, of his duties as governor of the former province of Katanga, it was notoriously observed, from November 2015, in his immediate entourage, the presence of the guards foreign-born, including Mr. Toon Jr III Leonardo O’Neal, aka LT, American subject, who stayed in Lubumbashi, from December 29, 2015 to January 3, 2016, before disappearing momentarily from circulation, “perhaps we read in this document of 208 pages, including 39 annexes.

    It is besides following this “statement” that Évariste Boshab, then Deputy Prime Minister in charge of the Interior, had published, on January 5th, 2016, an official communique “recalling the obligation made to all natural or legal person, recipient of a close custody, to make a declaration by January 15, 2016 to the commander of the Congolese national police closest to his residence or facilities, “continues the text.

    Excerpt from the updated investigation report on mercenary recruitment by Mr. Katumbi Chapwe Moses

    … where “current 2014”?
    However, in its motion to set a hearing date of 16 March 2018 and authenticated with Jeune Afrique, the public prosecutor’s office of the Republic locates the facts alleged against Moïse Katumbi in 2014, while he was still in command of the former province of Katanga.

    “Without prejudice to a more precise date but during the period from 2014 to 2016, a period not covered by the prescription of the public action”, the former governor is accused of having “raised or hoards armed troops, hired or enlisted, hired, enlisted soldiers and provided them with arms and ammunition without order or authorization from the government, “writes the Attorney General of the Republic to the first president of the Supreme Court of Justice, called to set the hearing in this case.

    On the side of the defence of Moïse Katumbi, one denounces an “attempt to want to withdraw the accused from his natural judge to present it directly before the Supreme Court of justice which renders its decisions first and last resort”. In other words, without possibility of appeal.
