    Mr. MATATA PONYO Mapon was born in Kindu in Maniema June 5, 1964, and is a member of the People’s Party for Reconstruction and Development (PPRD). He served as Minister of Finance of the functions of the Democratic Republic of Congo from 19 February 2010 to 18 April 2012, when he was appointed Prime Minister. As Finance Minister, he took the business as the country had entered into a program with the IMF in the framework of the Initiative for Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC).

    In a global context marked by the negative effects of the international financial crisis, the Minister was able to stabilize the Congolese economy, the main balances were broken for more than five years. Indeed, for the first time in several years, the exchange rate of the Congolese Franc remained stable. It could lead successfully completed the first review of the program. This allowed the DRC to reach the completion point in June 2010, after reaching the decision point in 2003. This has resulted in the cancellation of roughly $ 10 billion of foreign debt .

    Since his appointment, he successfully led several important reforms, some of which have resulted in laws, including a new Customs Code, the Law on Public Finance, the new procurement code, the added tax value … After achievement of the Completion Point, it conducted negotiations with the countries of the Paris Club and commercial creditors for relief to be granted under the HIPC Initiative.

    Invested by the National Assembly dated May 9, 2012, Prime Minister Matata Ponyo Mapon has set in the context of a socio-economic program of the Government three major objectives: the continuation of economic reforms initiated most since 2010; economic recovery; and the restoration of State authority. The Government then engaged courageous actions in the field of public finance and fiscal management. The results are a significant improvement in the macroeconomic framework indicators, especially with an inflation rate of 2.72%, far below the forecast of IMF program agreed to 9%. In this regard, it should be noted that Congo has, for the last time, made a similar inflation rate in 1970, when the rate was 1.7%. He also promoted the banking payroll of civil servants, helping to improve the banking system of the country, but especially to stem the massive fraud that was poisoning the sector.

    In order to ensure the resumption of economic activities, the Prime Minister Matata Ponyo Mapon got down from the government system, improving the business climate. This program resulted in the accession of the DRC to OHADA, in addition to several other incentives including the removal of illegal and multiple taxes. The Prime Minister also conducted policies, supported on government resources for agricultural recovery, rehabilitation of road infrastructure of national and regional interest, reviving the activities of domestic financial institutions at half mast development for two decades; in the case of the Development Finance Corporation (SOFIDE). Anxious to a State meet its obligations, the reform of public administration is among the priorities of the Prime Minister.

    With these policies, the DRC has achieved a growth rate of 8.2% in 2012, against an African average of 5%. It should be stressed that the country will know, a row, a growth rate of almost 7% on average since 2010. This after almost two decades of negative growth.

    In its statement issued Monday, July 18, 2016, at its headquarters in the town of Limete, the AETA (Action for transparent and peaceful elections), a platform of NGOs in civil society, is categorical: “Six months the constitutional deadline, it is still possible to successfully holding the presidential elections in compliance with the deadline imposed by the constitution, provided substantial support to financial, logistical and technical are made by both the government and the international community. ”

    To get there, it will establish an emergency procedure, simplified, flexible and convenient as in the past, or in 1960, when elections were held shortly before the adoption of the electoral law. This involves in particular: the use of more reliable existing electoral roll; the development of flexible and simplified mechanisms at the local territorial administration for quick registration of new major; the creation within the consulates of the Congo, recording cells Congolese living abroad to effective technical support for the reconstruction of reliable and credible electoral register; the concrete commitment of the international community for an appropriate logistical support and the provision of financial resources
    required in real time.

    Some relevant recommendations

    From the above, the experts of the civil society members and non-members of AETA recommend to the President to use his powers for holding, within the constitutional period of the presidential election which will devote peaceful democratic transition in the DRC.

    The Government of the Republic, they advise, first, to respect the election financing plan approved in December 2015, allocating to the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) all arrested appropriations from US $ 300 million to organize presidential elections by December 2016. Then, redefine the disbursement plan adopted in December 2015, whereas the election of the President of the Republic shall be organized as a priority and to devote the necessary means and in right time.

    Moreover, experts from the civil society members and non-members of AETA ask Parliament to make available, at the earliest, the electoral law pending the review, and to exercise its prerogatives to the monitoring and constitutionally control of funding of INEC and fiscal governance thereof.

    At the National Independent Electoral Commission is asked to publish independently and in compliance with the Constitution an exceptional electoral calendar for the presidential election. Similarly, political parties adhere to rationally desire to recreate the political consensus through national dialogue based on respect for the Constitution.

    Finally, the AETA urge the Congolese people to mobilize strongly for the respect of the Constitution and the achievement of the major goal of democratic change at December 20, 2016.
    The platform also calls on the Congolese people to adhere to project management of elections by local mobilization of the required funds, facing budgetary deficit it faces.


    Criminals of the worst kind that are currently causing insomnia OPP and nightmares to peaceful inhabitants of Kintambo and Ngaliema continue to report for months, in three neighboring districts. This new triangle of insecurity is located between Jamaica Luka camp and My Country. Grouped in several bands of criminals who for war names Masasi, Commando, Mbeli-Mbeli, Red Brigade, Tungle and others operate on several fronts.
    On a first level, offenders run the streets in the late hours, questioning pedestrians and extorting their valuables. Always walk, they target night owls who, in the early hours of the morning, come back too late nights. Eyes heavy with sleep, staggering slightly dimmed by a glass too, the people of Jamaica and Ma Campagne fall into the clutches of these rogue elements that strip them of their mobile phones, bank notes and other jewelry.

    These criminals, who come from Luka Selembao Camp familiar typography of Jamaica neighborhood where they come before the day, locate all the crossing points between the Makelele river and neighborhood Ma Campagne. At first clash with elements of the police, they borrow steep trails and disappear through the bushes, before returning to their stronghold which would be at the cemetery Kintambo.

    On a second level, the thugs armed with weapons of war, conducting armed robberies in the homes of big
    fortunes of the area not guarded by police and military.
    The Nganda Avenue, porous border between Jamaica and the neighborhood Ma Campagne district, offers an ideal setting for robberies because the darkness that prevails at night in the area. of robbers
    vehicles whose headquarters is based at Camp Luka, indulge in armed extortion. Recall that this is the part
    Ngaliema as licensed criminals had killed a member of the Military High Court, came to exchange a few tickets dollars.
    According users of this road, the darkness helping, many Packages are perpetrated by bandits lawless.

    Modus operand: simulated car breakdown on this avenue, some shrubs scattered here and there to prevent the danger, forcing other motorists to reduce speed to overcome this obstacle. of the rogue elements including a strong presence these days is found Recently, at Luka camp, then come out of hiding, encircle
    vehicle of potential victims, snapped ignition keys of the automotive and submit their unmarked car running.
    The victims are crying abandoned to their fate, the edge of the road where they lived a live steer. emotion
    felt that night, can not be described without mentioning fear intense that knocked the driver and passengers during those few times when a slightest misstep on their part, could some fatal cases of this robbery.
    Certainly they were unharmed, but depressed and traumatized. he is now the duty of the police to actively seek, find the stolen car and hunt down the bandits who are still on the run.
    On a third level, there domiciliary visits gunmen in My Country. Three Alleys Avenue of the Ring Place
    commercial, to name a few famous arteries very popular, local residents have registered since the beginning of this year of armed robbery by criminals who generally, are assisted and guided to the homes of people
    considered affluent by their neighbors.
    At the provincial police, insecurity recorded these Recently, would likely be the sum of many acts banditry, petty crime, and flight in extremist.
    Bad coincidence, Kinshasa saw the eruption of violence Kuluna stables.
    We can take comfort in the idea that in light of the instructions received National Executive, the police authorities have mobilized their troops to be redeployed foot patrols in Kinshasa, through neighborhoods and towns plagued by insecurity.
    The organization of these patrols, we believe, can lead skirmishes with bandits, hence it is recommended that night walks are limited to those required by emergencies medical and other.


    For the Head of State, this solar plant is a palliative, temporary solution before making the commitment to undertake completion of Katende dam work already carried out at 65%. Also in the governorate installations, Joseph Kabila cut the symbolic ribbon Transkac company, taking on board a bus to the main entrance to the SNCC station to return to the starting point. The President of the Republic program provides today inspection of construction of the regional road Kananga Mbuji-Kalamba. It will return to Kananga on Wednesday where he will receive the notables of the province, before returning to Kinshasa by road the same day

    * The Head of State sent two messages to the people of Kananga. The first is decentralization. “I’d like to ask people to support this process because, ultimately, the goal is the development of the province, in a special way, the country in general.” The second concerns the electoral process. “At the same time, at the end of this month, on July 31, we must begin the enrollment process,” he said, drawing the attention of Kasai on the consequences of the boycott call launched by some politicians particular passage in this city

    The Head of State Joseph Kabila arrived yesterday in Kananga, capital of central Kasai province, where he proceeded in stride at the inauguration of the solar plant built by the South African company Megatron. This fitted solar power plant in the southern governorate of central Kasai province has improved electricity service in the city of Kananga, which was private for over 40 years.

    The Head of State supported his thumb on the “magic button” (the term of the Governor Alex Kande) and electricity expected long ago the waters of the Inga hydroelectric complex and rather Katende river comes the sun . Palliative, temporary solution, is immediately remarked President Joseph Kabila in his speech, with a commitment to undertake completion of Katende dam work already carried out at 65%. Also in the governorate facilities, the Head of State cut the symbolic ribbon Transkac society, and boarded a bus to the main entrance to the SNCC station to return to the point departure. Between the two events, he spoke, through the kanangaise population, Kasai center in particular and the Congolese in general …

    In his performance, while relaxed because Kanangais come to offer him a bath memorable crowd, President Joseph Kabila recalled the commitment made in 2011, during the election campaign. One to return to this city even though its local electoral score is not significant as he had asked her suffrage. He returned there to pay the debt at this time: that of energy. Hence, the project Katende dam to cover the electricity needs for Greater Kasai.

    However, due to the delay in completion of the work, he said he gave bail to the draft submitted to it by the Governor of the central Kasai: the use of solar energy, Kananga having an appropriate degree of sunshine. At this social message, the Head of State added a political message with two specific themes. The first is decentralization. “I’d like to ask people to support this process because, ultimately, the goal is the development of the province, in a special way, the country in general.”

    The second, on the electoral process. “At the same time, at the end of this month, on July 31, we must begin the enrollment process,” he said, drawing the attention of Kasai on the consequences of the boycott call by passing some politicians including Kananga.

    “I would like that this time, you listen to me. Especially you young people who have accompanied us to the airport so far. I know 90% of you do not have a voter card. ” The logical consequence: those who will participate in this process are likely to be candidates in the forthcoming elections. Those who will not do so will be neither voters nor eligible. For the President of the Republic, the primary objective in the medium term, the renewal of the political class.

    visionary leadership

    In his introduction, the Governor Alex Kande – who managed a real achievement in mobilizing its population – welcomes the first visit of Rais in the new central Kasai province. Supporting efforts by the Head of State “to mark the future through Dialogue” which he calls “a pledge of peace and national cohesion,” it renews its commitment to work under his visionary leadership. This leadership called upon to solve, among others, the perennial problem of lack of electricity with its corollary drinking water.

    The formula found is that of coupling the solar plant (for 1 MW) with the power plant (2.5 MW), totaling 3,5MW fully covering the needs of Kananga, which are 1.9 MW. The governor expects the social and economic benefits of improving living of its population.

    Thus, the whole world will have to remember that this is the reign and the leadership of President Joseph Kabila that moved the country and Francophone Central Africa the first symmetrical central “solar-thermal”. He had to do that, the “public-private” partnership Enerkac (Energy Kasai Central) and Snel; production equipment having been delivered by the South African company Megatron. The governor will complete his speech with the announcement of roadworks going to Angola in order to put the province to reach the port of Lobito on the Atlantic.

    Let’s say the program of the President of the Republic provides today inspection of construction of the regional road Kananga Mbuji-Kalamba. It will return to Kananga on Wednesday where he will receive the notables of the province, before returning to Kinshasa by road the same day.


    The Congress of the United States of America adopted Thursday, July 14, 2 resolutions on the Congo – Kinshasa. These allow the US government to punish those who will prevent the smooth running of the electoral process in the DRC. The first resolution is the personalities belonging to the Executive while the second, it has in his sights all the others, he reported. In particular, those of the opposition. Finally, this sword of Damocles now hangs over all Congolese political actors. “If the government officials, opposition members or others (actors) hinder the democratic process, the sanctions will be applied to them, ” chanted have an elected Usa during the deliberation of these measures with its pairs the house of representatives.

    All in all, the country of Obama warns each other deal with the issue of elections. But Kinshasa does not hear the same ear. On one hand, he brandishes every effort to facilitate the organization of elections. “The effort that provides the government speak for themselves in this context of generalized crisis in the country, the government has already allocated $ 120 million for the elections ”, maintained on US land Barnabé Kikaya Bin Karubi diplomatic adviser to President Kabila. on the other hand, more than once, it never ceases to say loud and clear that the issue of elections is the national sovereignty of the Democratic Republic of Congo. it should be noted that Opposition is also set to its responsibilities. leaders of the Independent National Electoral Commission are also affected by this law, provided that this institution holds in respect of the constitution, the organizing authority elections.

    To read the mind of past legislation in Congress, the Obama administration is not considering elections beyond the limits of the provisions of the Congolese Constitution by reference to Article 73 of the current law of the laws of DRC. This article stipulates that the ballot for the election of the new President of the Republic shall be convened by the INEC 90 days before the end of the term of the President in office. In theory, omitted end of the world is next on September 19 that the US authorities foresee the elections in Congo – Kinshasa. Nangaa Cornelius, president of the Independent National Electoral Commission has long since announced to the world that depending on the expertise of INEC, elections were not possible this year. To be honest, this support institution of democracy is even a better review process, establishment of a new electoral register with government support and even, of all institutions. The opposition, meanwhile, face the whole operation, shouts to joke and sliding attempt orchestrated by the presidential majority, so that there are no elections so that current leaders of institutions remain up in view of the judgment of the Constitutional court. The dialogue seems to be the only salvation for the electoral process. But here, the opposition, at least the largest fringe, waving pre cutthroat eyes of power. Especially on the issue of release of political prisoners. Meanwhile, the days pass and the dates are approaching problems. Although Edem Kodjo, the facilitator said forum hopes to get to convene this forum by the end of July. The US, which in many respects, are concerned about the problems that may arise if there are no elections or a consensus solution to save the electoral process well account by these resolutions, to push the Congolese political actors to responsibility for the future of the country. This at the risk of incurring penalties.

To believe his words, the arrival of these new players will, undoubtedly strengthen the backbone of the team that dream. Furthermore, it should be emphasized the strong commitment of all the players, encouraged by their Chairman, to go from victory to victory, at all levels of the national championship. Remember, this team is preparing hard the qualifying tournament of the national championship of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Only the OC Bukavu Dawa plays at Kadutu, which would be in a very advanced state of disrepair, several sources said. This calls by the country’s authorities and the football governing bodies, special attention. All’s well that ends well, they say, the training session held in the presence of Mushi Bonane, President of the Club, was closed on a note of hope, to see the team win Place in National Championship Linafoot 2016-2017.
    Deeply dialogue …
    Wherever he went, the Spokesman of the OPR preached dialogue. From North to South Kivu, Sylvanus Mushi has shown strong arguments to support that dialogue is essential. In his
    regard, he stressed that dialogue is the royal road to the country out of the political crisis. Thus, it has raised awareness of Bukavu, in particular, and that of South Kivu, in general,
    appropriate this dialogue. He showed the negative impact on the country’s future, if there is delay in the commencement of work of this forum. Moreover, in the morning of Tuesday, July 26, Professor Sylvanus Mushi Bonane left Bukavu, on board a boat to go, this time here in Goma, the province of North Kivu. On site, a great mobilization before him. Again, this is a festive atmosphere to see this worthy son of the country that promotes the best interests of the Congolese. Some time later, the Patron of the opposition Patriotic and Republican, OPR acronym, went to Isidore Bakandja fortunate center, where he is expected to meet with many people. Dressed in his political man cap, he raised awareness of this corner of the country on the need for inclusive political dialogue in Republic
    Democratic of Congo. It was noted the political will of the leader of the OPR, which is hell-bent on holding this forum to organize good elections.


    Deep within themselves, and Daniel Dieudonne Nkishi Mbayo, two countrymen, wrote to the CENI, to denounce the dual nationality case. Certainly, the renunciation of Belgian nationality since 2007, the Old Lion Katanga, Patriarch Mwando, must have been for something, in this, obviously, patriotic. The goal here would be, if we read between the lines, the contents of this letter that The Daily Prosperity, thanks to its ubiquity, has obtained a copy flying on the canvas, in slam the door on the nose of foreigners at this new voter registration, launched from the Nord-Ubangi District in the former Ecuador still want if we are not careful, access to the undue Congolese nationality. In the same correspondence sent to Cornelius Nangaa, both Congolese intellectuals, indicate, moreover, they will seize the King of Belgium and the Commission of the European Union, to request the complete list of all Congolese to whom they would awarded the nationality of a member country. In this edition, it is necessary to read the reasons and especially to identify the contours of this new series with multiple twists. This is an exclusive, at least so far.


    On behalf of the government, Lambert Mende Omalanga dedicating to those he calls himself the ” fetishists dates ”, a quote from the teachings of African wisdom as recalled by the great South African leader Nelson Mandela of happy memory: “If you can not run, walk, if you can not walk, crawl but forward” toward peace, concord without which there is no possible development. He said yesterday in his office in Gombe, on the sidelines of a press briefing focused, as expected, the bulk of current issues. The business of Beni, dialogue, registration of voters, not forgetting, of course, in his line of defense, shipping any other underlying problems and, in the light of developments in theater operations, which deserved a trench government position. Overall, Mende, in his legendary serenity, has evaded any questions. Moreover, it would be wrong to know if anyone thought he would, he miss such an opportunity, to cut the grass under the feet of opponents of President Kabila on concerns related in particular to the end of mandate and respect constitutional deadlines and especially on harsh criticism he is currently credited to some media devices in connection with the escalation of violence and massacres, became cyclical, in the North Kivu and in related areas. Prosperity restores here the full statement of the spokesman of the government of this Thursday, August 18, 2016. There is, of sufficient material. To each, therefore, to find him.


    Ladies and gentlemen of the press,

    The Congolese people shocked and devastated by massacres in the outskirts of the town of Beni by a group of terrorists driven out of their dens Mwalika and Naduyi, Saturday, August 13, 2016, just raised the national three-day mourning declared by the government of the Republic on the instructions of the President of the Republic, Head of State. The Government wishes to reiterate its condolences to the families and relatives of the victims and to the entire population of the territory of Beni, a territory suffering martyrdom for too many years because of these criminal gangs from abroad .

    The Government pays tribute to the solidarity expressed by different sections of the Congolese population in all the provinces and welcomes the compassion and dignity of the majority of men and women of this country in the event, one more, one too large for the North East of the DRC which has suffered too much from the cruelty of barbarian hordes lawless laws since the mid 90s.

    It reaffirms, now more than ever, its firm determination to ramp up our defense and security forces to eradicate definitively terrorist groups responsible for such acts of barbarism that no cause can justify .

    It is in this context that the Prime Minister paid a visit to Beni Tuesday after a key meeting of the Supreme Council of Defence convened in Goma by the President of the Republic. The purpose of this visit was certainly mark the solidarity of the whole country to the victims of the terrorist activism in the region, but it was mainly to inspect the system set up under the new modus operandi of criminals, conventional type of action that our valiant defense and security forces have seriously undermined, went to forms called asymmetric aggression that require a response from another type likely to secure any cost that part of the country.

    The exploitation of the documents seized in the three strongholds of this criminal group, Meidna, Malwika and Naduyi, captured and destroyed by our FARDC and interrogation of captured items is not yet complete. She has already our services to trace follows the historical pattern.

    From a traditional armed opposition to the regime of President Museveni Ugandan expatriate in the Republic of Zaire they were in 1995, ie two years before the destruction of the Second Republic of the late President Mobutu (1997), the ADF-NALU has substantially transformed and became this day a true international terrorist Islamist radical character. This finding emerges from the multinational composition of its fighting units were found not only Ugandan subjects of the first days, but also Somalis, Tanzanians, Kenyans, Rwandans, Ethiopians and Congolese DRC also. This is clearly in recruitment mission in Tanzania that Jamil Mukulu, movement leader was arrested in Tanzania before being extradited to Uganda, his country of origin where it will soon stand trial.

    The radicalization process has elements of recruits, according to information gathered, received support Somali Shebab. It was at the instigation of these bands that ADF militia routed by FARDC offensives have converted to asymmetry:

    asymmetry in terms of means of attack through the use of ordinary means such as machetes, axes and clubs available everywhere and can not a priori arouse the suspicion of the defense and security forces in the agricultural zone;
    asymmetry tactical and strategic plans, and the choice of targets by surrendering to face the FARDC to attack peaceful populations in isolated hamlets selected based on their distance from the barracks of the defense and security forces or on the go or return to the farms and fields in the hope of breaking solidarity between technostructures of the state and people say that could speed their final neutralization.

    Like all other countries in the world victims of international terrorism radicalized Islamist groups, and they are very numerous, the Democratic Republic of Congo, our country is applicant for international solidarity worthy of the name. Effective solidarity, not condescending and likely to increase its operational capacity, which is unfortunately not the case so far.

    It is not just that the Congolese government and its defense and security forces are required in this regard practically contort literally to have the military means to deal with this threat and this, despite the support of the MONUSCO is still far from being at the height of a challenge of this magnitude. The lifting of the arms embargo would be a strong signal that would mark the recognition of the international community about the need for the DRC the same status as the other countries that are in the sights of this scourge.

    The Government appreciates the value compassion expressed by Pope Francis, who took the opportunity of the Solemnity of the Assumption since the Vatican to denounce the silence of the international community to terrorism repeatedly that continue to endeuiller Beni territory. This symbolic consolation of the Supreme Pontiff goes straight to the heart even if it is not, as one might expect, such as to provide defense and security forces of the DRC the suitable means to finalize their tasks securing the entire national territory.

    This is the place for the Government of the Republic to question certain attitudes and habits adopted by some of our compatriots face this real existential challenge and that border on indecency. Indeed, in addition to sterile polemics, these citizens seem to revel in this tragedy that besets our people in Kivu and even attempt to draw a kind of politician dividend. For them, this chronic insecurity in the far north is a banal as another opportunity to settle accounts partisans, bring baseless lawsuit, stigmatize and blame the institutions as well as defense and security forces of our country , making sure the game an enemy, terrorism, against which good sense and humanity call for a holy union.

    Faced with multiple murder in cold blood of innocent compatriots in Beni, rather than calling the patriotic uprising and the establishment of a republican front in the framework of national solidarity as happens in other places in such if some members of some civil society and their mentors unpatriotic politicians have seen only the opportunity to throw tooth and nail on national institutions through cynical allegations dictated by their petty interests.

    We saw an elected afford to round up the population of Butembo for the drive to Beni to the scene recently committed crimes allegedly there to express their anger like. Local authorities could in no way leave and invade a crime scene in which are usually only allowed the investigators and we may wonder if what motivated initiators of these irrational acts was not to cover their tracks and make difficult the investigation and tracking down current. The authorities’ efforts thus preserving the commission site crimes that we deplore were seriously abused by these uncivil and deplored a new mortally affected victim by a stray bullet after the so-called demonstrator had killed a policeman blows stones. These protesters were also lynched a mentally ill Beni they had taken for an ADF fighter and wounded seven people. Like what, it’s best to let the technostructures state do their job instead of trying to create anarchy of the so-called justice “popular.”

    In any event, despite the sabotage of which we soon will know the final word, the defense and security forces continue tracking down terrorists and as we speak, 80 ADF elements have already been captured and are kept in Kangwanyi central prison in Beni. Among them, many Ugandan subjects but also Tanzanians and some Rwandans and Congolese. In Butembo imam was caught in youth recruitment offense for terrorist group and was arrested.

    A number of articles read on the media, postings posted on social networks and statements heard in audiovisual waves are symptomatic of this attitude. After the vile massacres of Beni, too we have seen surge of calls for the resignation of the highest authorities of the country treated it is not known on what basis the terrorist perpetrators of these massacres when not downright presented against all rational logic as planners, promoters or sponsors of such massacres. We remember that during the clashes between the security forces and the militia of off-the-law of Chief Mpandi Kamwina Nsapu Friday, August 12, 2016 in the Kasai Central Tshimbulu who killed 19 fellow including 11 policemen the same sources had rushed on stretchers to recovery, brocarder national Police and practically take up the cause for criminals whose benefit they invoked the human rights like other victims including policemen killed these militiamen in fulfilling their mission were not human and had no rights. The words of an activist for human rights in these circumstances testify to this kind of schizophrenia who would want that criminals are praised and the security forces that make use of self-defense are vilified. With a martial tone, this activist denounced and criticized ” the use of force by the disproportionate response by the government rd. Congolese “in his analysis of the events that had resulted in the deaths of eight militiamen and 11 police officers, so we are entitled to wonder which side stood the” disproportion “. No word of compassion to location of 11 police he was rather quick to describe as “executioners’. This looks suspiciously like a remake of about already heard about the Likofi operation.

    In some press that does not bother most ethical principles, have been pleased to spread very shocking images contrary to respect for the dead and which we now know they have nothing to do with the events in question and to superimpose the “one” deliberately malicious that will neither in the direction of strengthening national cohesion, nor of the culture of peace in our country.

    Other compatriots have fun feeding the psychosis through logorrhée warlike semantics. While the Congolese people cry and bury their dead in Beni and Kananga, a handful of bad visibility politicians found no better than to spread to the four winds inflammatory statements mixing provocations, threats and challenges. Monday, August 15, a Kinshasa tabloid did not hesitate to relay its “a” statement of the head of a platform of the opposition claiming the most seriously that failure to convene the electorate the September 19, he and his friends would demand the resignation and arrest of staff of INEC.

    One may wonder if this martial terminology is not involved a deliberate intention of killing the Republic especially when the same statement will tote up to challenge a sovereign decision not to extend a visa in favor of an individual foreign national by the Congolese immigration service or worse to question the prerogatives of the Constitutional Court, flogged for uttering a judgment interpretation of the basic Law or the Head of State to whom he is simply denied the right to take the decision to restore normal diplomatic relations with a neighboring state in accordance with its constitutional prerogatives on the ground that his term comes to an end soon. Such practices are unacceptable when at the same time proclaiming his faith in the advent of a democratic state.

    This way of saying one thing and its opposite in fact makes a mockery of the people of this country.


    Today, more than ever, the inclusive national dialogue suggested by the President of the Republic as a place to break with anything that compromises the reliability and the peaceful nature of our election cycles and tainting them of unspeakable violence finally snatch the consent of all Congolese in good faith.

    It is clear that there is a conspiracy against the only rational scheme crisis. Chaos followers are busy in recent months to prevent by all possible means the Congolese to resolve their differences through peaceful dialogue therapeutic.

    This diabolical project is to let the situation deteriorate until the opposing clans, not having been able to round the angles time, can compete in a bloodbath that political forces unscrupulous dream of picking up power Supreme in the rubble and chaos caused. Considering the huge opposition protests and the majority at the end of last July, one can easily get an idea of the carnage that could occur if the supporters of the two camps came to fight.

    In reality, the Congolese who think like the government that killed over for excessive political ambitions of each other is a death too are more than a majority. Mourning for nearly two decades our people throughout nearly all of its components has decided to spare the nation macabre new episodes by subscribing to the inclusive national political dialogue.

    It is unfortunate that some actors among the most famous allow themselves to walk backwards, spitting on dialogue said they were the first to present as the only solution to the problem of elections on the horizon.

    Many had trouble understanding the coaster an opposition icon, which had hitherto accustomed us to respect its commitments adamant, compared to all the good dialogue that he repeated to anyone who would listen. Since last week, the investigative press has given us scabrous revelations about a pact between the counter natural leader, however, advocate of non-violence and proponents of chaos scheme which most Congolese are turning away.

    Nevertheless, we continue to believe that all Congolese who truly love their country will rally to this ideal, to finish and prioritize the best interests of the nation that rhymes with inclusive national political dialogue, especially after the good offices of the international community, civil society, CENCO.

    I’ll finish this communication by a quote I would like, on behalf of the Government, to dedicate fetishists dates; a quote from the teachings of African wisdom as recalled by the great South African leader Nelson Mandela of happy memory: “If you can not run, walk, if you can not walk, crawl but forward” toward peace , concord without which there is no possible development.
