    Pope Francis and the CENCO weighed heavily for the end of the political mess!

    With 95% of the work done, of which the remaining 5% is to be devoted to the finalization of the agreement, everything is within our reach, the Archbishop of Kisangani and President of the National Episcopal Conference of Congo (CENCO ), Marcel Utembi. Three days earlier, on December 21, 2016, this prince of the Roman Curia addressed the participants in the interdiocesan dialogue in these pathetic terms: “I would now like to convey to you a personal message from the Holy Father, Pope Francis . Since the Catholic Church of the DRC has embarked on this mission of good offices, the Pope mobilizes the universal Church to pray for the DRC. On Sunday 18 December the Pope asked all the faithful of the world to pray that the political dialogue in the DRC should take place in a “serenity to avoid any kind of violence” and lead to “good for the country”. On Monday, at the private audience he gave us, the Holy Father reassured us in these words: “I am concerned about what is happening in your country that I want to visit at the right time. I pray for the Congolese people and the responsibility in the search for the well-being of the population. I assure the Congolese people of my spiritual closeness and bless them. ”

    Let us replant the scenery of this foggy Congolese political landscape. From 19 to 21 January 2015, violent riots broke out in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, following the controversial electoral law debated in Parliament. On 12 February 2015, the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) made public the overall electoral calendar, which complied with the constitutional deadlines. Following the example of the partial electoral calendar published the previous year, this restrictive chronogram was rejected as a whole, paradoxically, by the Congolese Opposition and a fringe of the international community which had demanded it to the horn and cry. On 1 June 2015, the President of the Republic, Joseph Kabila, gave the go-ahead of the presidential consultations for the holding of the dialogue at the Palais de la Nation. On November 28, 2015, Joseph Kabila convened the national inclusive political dialogue by way of Order. The controversy has been engaged, for months, on international mediation or facilitation between the parties involved in the failed electoral process. At the same time, the President of the Commission of the African Union (AU) appointed former Togolese Prime Minister Edem Kodjo, Facilitator of Congolese Dialogue. At the end of March 2016, the UN Security Council invited, through Resolution 2277, Congolese actors to inclusive dialogue and respect for the Constitution. Notwithstanding the involvement of the international community, political unrest continued. At the end of July 2016, cross meetings drew immense crowds: the presidential mobility at the Tata Raphael stadium and the Rassemblement made in Genval on the Boulevard Triomphal in Kinshasa. And the start of the operation of enlistment of the voters in the North-Ubangi province.

    From 1 September to 18 October 2016, the inclusive National Political Dialogue of the African Union City had put the Presidential Majority, the Pro-Dialogue Opposition and a fringe of civil society and religious denominations around a table, Under the facilitation of Edem Kodjo and the international support of the UN, the AU, the EU, the OIF, the SADC and the ICGLR. At the end of the work, the political agreement of the City of the AU was born. Unfortunately, a new outbreak of violence occurred in Kinshasa between 19 and 21 September. Many casualties ! Pursuant to the spirit and letter of the agreement, Augustin Matata Ponyo handed over his chair to Prime Minister Samy Badibanga, Chairman of the UDPS parliamentary group and Allies in the National Assembly, from the ranks of the Opposition or even the Rassemblement Co-founder since Genval, a suburb of Brussels (Belgium). The Congolese people as a whole welcomed the appointment of this worthy son of the country. Hence, the impressive crowd at the Palais du Peuple at the inauguration of the Badibanga government on Thursday, December 22, 2016. Like a good shepherd who, having 99 sheep in the enclosure, President Joseph Kabila resorted to the good offices of the Catholic Bishops in order to bring back to the dialogue boat the radicalized fringe of the Opposition, in this case the Rally led by Patriarch Etienne Tshisekedi of the UDPS and The Front for the Respect of the Constitution led by Eve Bazaïba of the MLC. Curiously, these politicians no longer demanded international mediation and did not refer to the famous Resolution 2277 at the start of these direct discussions. Thanks to the professionalism of the forces of order, the apocalypse predicted by the prophets of the misfortunes did not take place on this “fateful date” of December 19, 2016.

    Several challenges for the new Minister.ESU: what students expect from Steve Mbikayi

    Steve Mbikayi Mabuluki is the new Patron of Primary and Vocational Education. He officially took office on December 23, 2016 after the handover with Professor Theophile Mbemba. The new Minister certainly does not have an easy task. The majority of students do not give him enough luck especially that it is not a Professor. Prosperity, in its mission to search information at the source went to Universities and Higher Institutes to exchange with a sample of students about their expectations with respect to the new Minister of Higher Education and University. It should be recalled that the micro-walkman was made, among others, at the National Pedagogical University, UPN in acronym; The Higher Institute of Applied Techniques, ISTA; The Higher Institute of Commerce, ISC; The Institut Supérieur Pédagogique de la Gombe, ISP Gombe; And the Faculty Institute of Information and Communication Sciences, IFASIC. In light of these exchanges, it is necessary to say that Steve Mbikayi will have to do everything possible to not only clean up his sector but also to fight corruption that has taken up residence in higher education. With regard to the interventions of the students, three things returned in their words. They expect the new Minister to be rigorous in decision-making, determination to fight all forms of corruption and, finally, a desire to clean up the sector. Although the new minister is known to the majority of students, it is rather his management and leadership skills that many are unaware of.

    Through T-N, 20-year-old Graduate Student, option management information at the SAI describes the new Minister in these terms: “Personally, I often see it on television. I know he’s a politician because he makes statements, but I do not know if he will live up to this great world. What I can ask him is to work for the welfare of the students and not the politicians because he is our Minister. He must do everything possible to find solutions to our problems. Today, especially we girls have a serious problem with regards to our success. I have just arrived at the University, but we are learning a lot about odds. When a Teacher wants you, you are obliged to give in to the risk of not succeeding in his course. What will happen if the same professor gives a course of great weight? There is all the risk either of resuming the year, or of falling squarely on its course. Or better to yield his body to the benefit of odds. So, like a father of a family, the Minister must also secure us. ”

    For his part, H-N, G1 electronic at ISTA, 23 years, the new Minister must militate to equip students with sophisticated instruments of practice. “Today there are new information and communication technologies, but our country is struggling to adapt. Everything changes, including training and even teachings, but at home the Professor, Heads of Works and Assistants stagnate. We are taught with syllabuses 20 years old or more. Syllabuses that are the same age as us. We see that there is no effort on the part of the teacher in terms of their own upgrading. We believe that during his term of office the Minister will also advocate for the upgrading of professors and, above all, insist that the various courses taught in the academic world be adapted to the reality and even the evolution of the world in the field of education. ‘Education’.

    Sarah L-, L2 Commercial Sciences, Gombe Superior Pedagogical Institute, 26 years: “Before going elsewhere, Minister Steve Mbikayi must begin with corruption. This is the very basis of everything. We have realized that in Higher Education and Universities we do not pass classes because we are intelligent, but rather because we have money, because we are easily manipulable when we are ” Acts of a woman. And above all, because one can easily render sexual services to different Teachers or Teachers. There is also this case of the obligation to purchase syllabuses. Therefore, it is difficult or impossible to succeed in a course when you have not bought the syllabus or without paying the copyright. It is not intelligence that is lacking, but the means. Hence, you will realize that those who finish school today do not have a high standard, they rather have money to corrupt. I even think that is the main cause of unemployment in our country. ”

    Elvis M., G3 IFASIC, 24: “The truth is that the new Minister does not have the easy task especially with regard to corruption in academic circles. In our Universities and Superior Institutes everything is bought, nothing is free while we pay academic fees each year. One pays the Syllabus, Interrogations, TP, collections, papers, sometimes even places to put themselves. And then, it must make an effort to stabilize academic fees in all public universities. What explains why the SAI pays more than the UPN? Why does UNILU pay more than the University of Kinshasa when we all know that these two universities belong to the State? I know that this new government does not have a long life, but we are asking Minister Steve Mbikayi to go straight to find solutions in academia. It will be necessary to think of the problem of elastic years in certain universities of which UNIKIN “.

    Noëlla T-, L1 UPN, 28: “I have learned that he is the promoter of a great international school, I am counting on him to improve teaching at the university level. I do not want to be severe with him because I know that to fight baseness, we must start with the base, that is, the primary school. So I suggest that he talk to his colleague at the EPSP to solve this problem at the primary school level, so at university everything will go well, and even very well. The Minister should also draw the ears of professors, if necessary sanction them with regard to corruption. In view of what I am wasting, I am obliged to bring at least 10,000 FC each day to buy syllabuses, TP, Interrogations, etc. Why can the State not ensure that Syllabuses are free? I believe that this is not a problem of means, but rather of will. And we count on the Minister to make this dream come true soon. ”

    MM-Gabrielle, G3 communication UPN, 21: “I suggest that the new minister can make the rounds from time to time to make himself aware of what students call academic realities. In vain, if he does not realize the suffering of the students, it is useless. Because corruption has taken up residence, no matter what day he decides to come, he will always find antivaleurs here. It’s shameful to say it, but we have no other choice, higher education is polluted to the spinal cord. The Professors consider the University as a business. Let’s calculate, we are 1200 students in an audience, and the lab sells at 500FC, when you do the mathematical exercise, you’ll quickly realize that for a single audience, the Professor or CT reaches 600,000 CFF per day. We urge the Minister to carry out, without delay, raids on the ground. ”

    In view of these different interventions, the ESU Patron can already measure the responsibility of his mission and understand the extent to which students need his rapid reaction to several ills that corrode university education. Moreover, it should be noted that Steve MBKAYI is the man of position and he can change things. It is also the man of difficult conditions, it is present where no one sees it coming, and active where everyone has failed.

    Words that divide

    The father of the church in Kinshasa, Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya, invited the Congolese in general and the political actors, in particular, to engage in a peaceful approach. He had also said his vows and wishes from heaven to the birth of Christ. He spoke thus, in his usual homily said on the occasion of Christmas. For Laurent Monsengwo, the peace of Christmas excludes assassinations, killings and violence. It involves justice, love, truth, without which one exposes oneself to discontent, frustration, trouble, if not riots, contrary to social harmony, indispensable to reconciliation. “He who respects the Constitution has nothing to fear from justice,” he chanted. This very political homily has aroused many passions in public opinion. In terms of reactions, there is that of Lambert Mende Omalanga, Government Spokesman, Minister of Communication and Media. He said it in an interview given to the confrères d’actualité.cd. For Lambert Mende, Cardinal Monsengwo addressed the Catholics who were in the church. For him, it is a non-event.

    Words that divide

    The Archbishop of Kinshasa had not mentioned any name of a political actor in his words. Rather, it is political analysts who index power or the radical Opposition. Indeed, paragraphs 7 and 9 of this homily contain problem words which give rise to heated debates in the Congolese political agora. In particular, “the fact of taking power by arms does not justify that one can leave it only by the arms”, “It is revolu the time when we took the power by the arms, “The days when we sought to preserve power by arms, by killing its people, those young people who only claim their rights to live a little more worthily! Let us take care, my brothers and sisters, for “Whoever kills by the sword shall perish by the sword” (Mt 26: 52).

    Minister Mende believes that “the Cardinal talks about people who want to take power by force. We saw it in December of this year. It is a principle of political morality and life. We can not seize power by force. We do not have a problem with this recommendation of the Cardinal, “he added.

    Call to the Congolese

    “The peace of Christmas is for all without exception, because it is destined for all those whom God loves. It is the peace of hearts, and the peace of spirits; Peace which signifies bodily integrity, but which above all speaks of an integral soul, in communion with God and in search of God and eternal goods. It is right to take into account the call of Pope Francis, when he exhorts all Congolese to be craftsmen of reconciliation and peace and that all those with political responsibilities listen to the way of Their own conscience, knowing to see the cruel sufferings of their compatriots and having at heart the common good, “recalled Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo.

    Improvement of the energy sector in the DRC

    It was Monday, December 26, 2016 that Prince Willy Mishiki, the new Deputy Minister of Energy and Water Resources, normally arrived at his office located in the administrative building of the Régideso, located along the Boulevard du 30 juin, in The commune of La Gombe. President of the National Union of Nationalists and Coordinator of the political platform “Gathering signatory of the Political Agreement of October 18, 2016”, Prince Willy Mishiki has appropriated many residual difficulties to which the thousands of Congolese are confronted in the sector of Water and electricity. For this worthy son of North Kivu, each territory and city of the DRC must be served by electricity and drinking water. This, in his view, will have a significant positive impact on the economic life of the country, on the lives of children under five who die prematurely as a result of improper water use.

    Although the time is too short, Prince Willy Mishiki, along with his minister Pierre Anatole Matusila, intend to innovate, according to their wisdom and intelligence. But now it is not a matter of suspicion but rather of the conviction that drives change. For him, indeed, the Congolese will have to wait and trust them. In 12 months already, he sees beautiful things happen in this great and beautiful country. “We will first make an inventory of what is at our disposal. Increasing attention should also be given to the private sector. Since it must be recognized that the State does not have much resources today to invest in this sector. Today we have a hundred or so hydraulic sites where we can erect dams or wind and solar power production, “he told media professionals. It adds that it is their responsibility to fund studies that are an important phase in the financing of any project. “Our goal today is to have electricity in every territory and every major city in this country. Really, it’s a big challenge. We only have 16 months, but hopefully in a year we can do something, “he believes.

    Success Chance

    He also argued that several studies have been carried out by their predecessors. “We know sites that reassure us that in every territory there is the possibility of producing electrical energy. And when we have electrical power, we are more likely to witness the emergence of secondary activities whose success depends largely on electricity and water. In Katanga, for example, most mining companies import electricity from Zambia. While in the country, we can save these currencies and increase production. Some miners have reported to us that if they have a very good electrical current, 24 hours a day, they would increase the production capacity. Given that the electrification sector has already been privatized, it can now boost the economy of the DRC, “he said.

    Potential investors

    In his keynote speech, Prime Minister Samy Badibanga highlighted the importance of public private partners in the success of the transitional government. It is therefore imperative that partners support the heavy responsibility of Minister Pierre Anatole Matusila and his deputy minister, Prince Willy Mishiki. It is in this capacity that the latter has returned to this strategic point. He said: “We can produce our current here and we sell it outside with the help of international and domestic investors. They must only be encouraged to come and invest in the country. Energy is one of the weapons that the government is going to use to shoot down titanic work. Prime Minister Samy Badibanga made it one of his priorities. Our commitment with Minister Matusila will precisely enter into the framework of the social Congolese in order to improve their living conditions through our sector.

    Message

    He called the people to patience. “I believe that the population has followed the government’s program discourse and understood that Prime Minister Samy Badibanga has a good faith to fulfill the missions assigned to him. Our people have to be patient, because in order to achieve our vision, we will sometimes have to make rigorous decisions. Free maternity-related costs are possible. We have neighboring countries that do. We can cite Angola and Rwanda, “he said. He returned the ball to the level of politicians who must be animated by good faith and political will. “We realized that you can not produce without being healthy. That is why, in the water sector, we will do all we can to innovate and make quality work for our people. We thank the Prime Minister who has included in his program free health care for children under 5 years of age. It will help parents take care of other things instead of worrying too much about spending money on children’s health, “he reassured.

    Dialogue or not in the DRC

    Recently released after being arrested during the demonstrations on December 19 and 20, Constant Mutamba maintains his marks. For the president of the New Generation for the Emergence of Congo -NOGEC-, Joseph Kabila is the author of the crisis that rages in the country. Therefore, notwithstanding the dialogue of the Interdiocesan Center, it should leave power to allow the Congolese people to live, for the first time, an alternation without controversy, peaceful and democratic. Hence, he relaunched Operation “Sifflet” to signify the end of the presidential mandate as of December 19, 2016 at 23 hours 59 ’59’ ‘.

    NOGEC is a pro-democracy citizen movement. For Constant Mutamba, the true democracy of a country is proved not only by a broad freedom of expression but also by a peaceful passing of power at the top of the state. As a result, according to the statements of this great pro-democracy fighter, it appears that the ultimate step, which can undoubtedly be to award R & D. Congo in the pantheon of the great nations, apart from its development, would indeed be a true democratic alternation at the level of the Institution President of the Republic. “On December 19, 2016, date marking the end of the second and last five-year term of the Head of State, having passed, this means, mutatis mutandis, that Joseph Kabila is no longer, according to the Constitution, the President of the Republic. The fact that he did not submit his resignation, as the entire Congolese people would have wished, constitutes, for this purpose, a serious violation of the fundamental law of R & D. Congo. On this, Kabila presumably lost its legitimacy and legality, “says the president of NOGEC.

    Anxious to see R & D. Congo becomes a respected and truly sovereign country, this activist, pointing out that it is not yet late to pull himself together, urges the President of the Republic has filed his resignation. In his opinion, “it is Joseph Kabila who has led the country into this impasse. To this end, the fact of seeing him remain at the palace of the nation is strongly condemnable “. Constant Mutamba, speaking of the dialogue of the Interdiocesan Center led by the bishops of the National Episcopal Conference of Congo -CENCO, stressed that the real discussions should be the management of the Res publica after the departure of the Head of the ” State. Which means, in his opinion, that the people must, above all, fight in this direction. And afterwards, give the ball to the camp of the true politicians of the country in order to find, after consultation, if need be, the person who will direct the transition. However, this propagandist of true democracy hammers that he and NOGEC will struggle, will demonstrate, … unceasingly until R & D. Congo will gain access to true democracy. This, according to his words, begins with an immediate alternation.

    Did the Cardinal want to torpedo the work of the CENCO? Should we doubt the neutrality of CENCO? What path do we, Christians of Kinshasa, have to follow? That of the gospel which preaches forgiveness and the search for reconciliation in all circumstances, as the current president of CENCO repeatedly repeats? Or must we sharpen the swords according to the revengeful logic preached on December 25 in our churches? Asked Kajepa Molobi, the pro-Majority analyst who comes here, in another form, with his thoughts without mitts, on the message recently issued by Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo, Archbishop of Kinshasa. For him, in the present circumstances, things being what they are, the only way that corresponds to Christian charity is to agree on a reasonable period of preparation for transparent, credible and peaceful elections. This is not the path chosen by those whom the Cardinal visibly supports. A father concerned for the harmonious future of the family, “the bonus pater familias”, does not preach the peace between two antagonistic groups of the same siblings, obviously taking sides for one and condemning the other without the ” Listen to ”, slice Kajepa Molobi, in his free pit repossession, below.

    Will Monsengwo recover Christian charity?

    Sunday, December 25, 2016, the Catholic faithful were surprised by the virulence of the words spoken by His Eminence, Cardinal MONSENGWO, on the day when peace should be celebrated.

    In a position as inappropriate as tendentious, the former president of the National Sovereign Conference broke into the talks that CENCO is currently organizing and running.

    The Congolese Christians were bewildered by a Machiavellian allusion indicating that their President of the Republic, who had peacefully succeeded Mzee Laurent Désiré Kabila, following an agreement between the leaders in office at the time of the assassination, which was Confirmed by all the representatives of the nation in Sun City and elected by universal suffrage in 2006, then reelected in 2011, that this one, despite this journey, would have come to power by arms!

    More astonishing still, he who should preach peace did not hesitate to threaten by promising death by the sword.

    The place of the church, one might think, is in the middle of the village. Although concealed in a liturgical vocabulary, the message delivered on December 25 in the churches of Kinshasa is not meant to reconcile or unite. It’s a hate message.

    In this speech, not all victims deserved the same attention. The police and other peaceful citizens attacked for refusing to participate in the insurrection of December 19 and 20 did not deserve any reference from the head of the Catholic Church in China. No comments were made about those who burned the vehicles of peaceful citizens. No advice has been given to the politicians who strive to dump the streets of the gangs of breakers and killers. Nothing against those who were strutted with Kalashnikov in the streets of Kinshasa, during the demonstrations presented as peaceful by the opposition. Those who attacked the shops and other facilities of others were not entitled to any remark from the prelate.

    For the Archbishop of Kinshasa, there are precious deaths that merit mourning and other worthless ones that are treated with indifference. This is particularly the case of policemen burned at point blank range on 19 and 20 December. One might think that there were Catholics among them.

    The message of 25 December 2016 of this year is obviously away from the preaching of reconciliation and the peace efforts of Pope Francis.

    This homily takes position for that part of the most extremist political class which wants to violate the Constitution, putting an end to democracy, to impose “the special regime” that the Rassemblement expects to establish after street riots.

    Moreover, this unavowed political motivation is betrayed by the fact that this text was very quickly edited in a brochure to ensure its wide dissemination.

    How can this violent discourse be reconciled with a few biblical verses with the current efforts of the CENCO?

    Did the Cardinal want to torpedo the work of the CENCO? Should we doubt the neutrality of CENCO?

    What path do we, Christians of Kinshasa, have to follow? That of the gospel which preaches forgiveness and the search for reconciliation in all circumstances, as the current president of CENCO repeatedly repeats? Or must we sharpen the swords according to the revengeful logic preached on December 25 in our churches?

    In the present circumstances, things being what they are, the only way that corresponds to Christian charity is to agree on a period.
