    Many Congolese have no Access to their Bank accounts.

    Under the supervision of the Central Bank of Congo (BCC) for a period of 180 days since last June, BIAC is still awaiting its dissolution while savers continue to languish in misery because they do not always have Access to their account. The blockage, according to these shareholders, comes from the BCC. To the point that the file remains stagnant at the level of the justice which should render its judgment since the 4 of December last.

    This is a matter of great concern to BIAC shareholders, who, like clients, are eagerly demanding the appointment of a liquidator, as required by law, to ensure that the proceedings can proceed as quickly as possible. To believe the shareholders, this approach is a solution to allow savers to recover the money they have placed in the bank. This solution, it is said, will go through the voluntary dissolution and liquidation of the assets of BIAC so that each interested person can take possession of its deposits.

    Alas! Until now, the procedure has remained blocked at the level of the BCC which should solve the dissolution yet legal.

    For example, in a press release issued on December 29, 2016, BIAC shareholders reminded the general public and debtors of the bank in particular that any repayment of credit to former members of BIAC Provisional Administration Committee during this period shall be considered null and void.

    On this basis, the shareholders remain awaiting the appointment by the BCC of a liquidator, who will be entitled to recover the credits granted. In the absence of a liquidator, the debtor would expose himself to pay his debt again because the legal principle is that “who pays badly, pays twice”, they hammered in the statement.

    Still in the same direction, one of the lawyers of the shareholders of BIAC approached, denounced certain maneuvers that would be manipulated by the BCC on the Provisional Administration Committee whose mandate ended on December 25, 2016, in accordance with the order Dated November 25, 2016 to review BIAC’s remedial options.

    For the advocate, the Chairman of the Provisional Administration Committee is not qualified to hire BIAC. Hence, he insisted, the public and the debtors must not yield to the pressure and especially to stop paying their credits because the mandate of the President of the Provisional Administration Committee has no legal basis . However, it should be noted that the credits reimbursed would normally be used for BIAC savers and not for the operation of a bank in liquidation. As the shareholders’ press release points out, it is therefore up to the BCC to approve the liquidator so that the procedure can follow its course as soon as possible.

    FORCE DE LA RUMEUR AUTOUR DE LA PRETENDUE « MORT DE FRANCK DIONGO »  ET QUELQUES  RAISONS DE SA POPULARITE.

    FORCE DE LA RUMEUR
    La rumeur qui en dit tout. Jamais une rumeur n’a été aussi folle !

    Nous sommes le Jeudi, 23 Décembre 2016, une forte rumeur gagne Kinshasa, Provinces, Afrique, Amérique et Europe par les voies de bouche à oreille, de la presse  audio–visuelle, du téléphone et autres réseaux sociaux, sur la « mort de Franck Diongo »,député national, président du M.L.P, vice président de l’Alternance pour la République et membre du Conseil des sages du Rassemblement, après qu’il ait fait l’objet de torture, en son domicile, par des  éléments de la Garde Républicaine. La panique, l’émotion et les pleures ont gagné tous les milieux : au Grand Marché de Kinshasa, les vendeurs ont précipitamment fermé  leurs affaires et s’en sont pris aux agents de l’ordre, en ces termes  « Si Diongo meurt, vous nous tuerez tous ». En dehors du marché et dans les Universités notamment, la vengeance se préparait et les  populations ne juraient que sur le nom de Diongo. Les téléphones des cadres de son parti et des membres de sa famille biologique retentissaient  et vibraient, sans cesse, à la suite des appels innombrables, à la  recherche de la confirmation et surtout d’un éventuel démenti (voir l’interview que l’Honorable FAYULU a accordée à l’émission TOKOMI WAPI ?).

    En Province, particulièrement au Sankuru, les partisans du MLP se préparaient pour la bataille  rangée, contre notamment ceux de la CCU de L. Mende. « Comment veut–on qu’on ait tué le seul leader qui nous reste et nous représente valablement. L’assassinant de Patrice Emery Lumumba ne suffit – il pas ? C’est trop ! » S’exclamaient les sankurois et les lumumbistes.

    A Kinshasa, la population dénonçait le complot et l’acharnement politique, contre non seulement la personne de Franck Diongo, mais encore le peuple. On voudrait,  murmurait- elle  réduire le peuple  et la vraie opposition (Rassemblement) au silence, en tuant Franck Diongo, « il faudrait qu’ils nous tuent tous ».

    Heureusement qu’au soir du même jour, la tension tombera à la suite du  démenti présenté et publié  dans nombre de chaînes de radio  et de télévision. On a frôlé le pire, mais la vérité est que l’on ne limite pas le souverain primaire.

    A la cour suprême de justice, cette popularité a été expérimentée le mercredi, 28 Décembre 2016 : une foule de plusieurs milliers de combattants et de sympathisants de Franck Diongo a créé une effervescence. Pour la contourner, la police et les juges ont décidé qu’il entra dans la salle où  se déroulait le procès de la honte, par une porte de derrière.

    Dehors, ils ont  brutalement dispersé la foule. Comme d’habitude, Franck Diongo a, malgré son état psychologique et physiologique,  intimé l’ordre à la foule afin qu’elle observe le calme et la paix, en ne réagissant pas contre les provocations de la police.

    QUELQUES RAISONS DE LA POPULARITE DE FRANCK DIONGO
    Si Diongo bénéficie d’une popularité sans précédent, il faut regarder du côté à la fois de sa personnalité, de son action et de sa moralité. Donnons-en quelques unes des raisons qui nous semblent importantes :

    La constance : Franck Diongo est  un des rares politiciens congolais constants. Contrairement à la plupart d’entre – eux, il n’a jamais été « vagabond politique ». Il ne court pas derrière les postes politiques ; il a combattu J. Mobutu, L.D. Kabila  et J. Kabila. Comme son Maître Etienne TSHISEKEDI, Il récuse toutes les propositions ressemblant à la corruption, à l’achat des consciences et au débouchage. Il jure d’accéder « proprement » au pouvoir, sans trahir le peuple, ses convictions et sa ligne  idéologico – politique.
    Avocat du peuple et combattant de liberté
    Franck Diongo est un véritable  Avocat du peuple et combattant de liberté. C’est un défenseur des causes difficiles et justes. Partout où les droits du peuple, des hommes et des congolais sont violés, Diongo est là. Il s’est opposé aux spoliations des terrains PLZ de Lingwala, des espaces sportifs de Lemba et de Masina ; il est intervenu en  faveur des travailleurs licenciés abusivement par l’entreprise Pain Victoire, il a défendu les droits des anciens travailleurs de LAC, des agents de l’ex. ONATRA et ceux des étudiants chassés des Universités pour non paiement des frais en faveur de leur réintégration. La liste étant très longue, il n’est pas possible d’énumérer tous les cas. Pour mettre en œuvre cette volonté, il a mis  sur pied une structure de gestion des doléances au sein de son parti. Il reçoit toutes les victimes chaque mercredi de la semaine.

    Interventions sociales et lutte contre la pauvreté.
    Franck Diongo est un véritable assistant social. Sans gérer un poste politico – administratif, il intervient socialement, tous les jours, au profit des personnes démunies ou défavorisées, grâce à son revenu de député. C’est un véritablement altruiste et le « seul qui ne fuit pas ses électeurs ». (E. Ntambwe 2016). Une religieuse de la Paroisse Saint Luc avait déclaré « qu’il est difficile que Diongo devienne riche, étant donné qu’’il s’oublie en assistant socialement les autres » (Kinshasa, 2016). Il assiste financièrement les veuves, les orphelins, les étudiants, les élèves, les chômeurs, les shégués, les sans domiciles fixes, les gagne – petit, etc.

    Courage politique et intellectuel exceptionnel
    Ce que les uns et les autres pensent si bas, Diongo le dit tout haut. C’est comme qui dirait, la meilleure façon de combattre le sorcier, c’est de le dénoncer à haute voix. « Soki omoni Ndoki belela ». Comme la dictature se nourrit du silence, Diongo et son parti le M.L.P. partent du slogan selon lequel « soki nalobi na kokufa,  soki na lobi te na kokufa, nalobampe na kokufa ». (Comme l’écrirait Corneille le Cid, « la mort n’est rien ; vivre vaincu sans gloire, c’est mourir tous les jours »).

    Pour ne pas être complice des effets de la dictature, Diongo dénonce et le fait courageusement. Il constitue ainsi un modèle, un homme, un courageux qui n’accepte pas que le mal l’emporte sur le bien, que la fausseté remporte sur la vérité, que la dictature l’emporte sur la démocratie et que le recul l’emporte sur le progrès.

    Il le fait bien, étant donné qu’il connaît la question congolaise, en sa qualité de chercheur dans les domaines de la politique, de l’économie et du droit positif congolais.

    Bref, Diongo est devenu un des congolais les plus populaires et respectés en République Démocratique du Congo. Il faut compter avec lui au cours des échéances électorales à venir.

    The Congolese Minister of Justice, Alexis Thambwe Mwamba, held a press conference on Monday in Geneva (Switzerland) where he is staying. During his “selective” press conference, Thambwe Mwamba reportedly declared the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) will refuse any independent investigation by United Nations experts into the cruel violence committed in the Kasai area. Unless they cooperate with the Congolese magistrates.

    According to Anglo Congo, who is delivering this information on its facebook page, “this position will not improve the brand image – already deteriorated – of the DRC before the UN bodies”.
    Before denouncing a possible campaign by the Kinshasa authorities in Geneva against an international fact-finding mission on violence in the Kasaï region.

    The High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Raad al-Hussein, last week called for the launch of international investigations into human rights violations in central and eastern Kasai. “A resolution on the subject will be put to the vote at the Human Rights Council on Thursday or Friday,” said Anglo Congo. The establishment of a one-year international fact-finding mission would pose a “problem” and “would be difficult to apply,” assured the press the Congolese Minister of Justice.

    If it accepts the assistance of international experts working under the auspices of Congolese magistrates, the government refuses to give the reins of ongoing investigations to foreign judges. Thambwe Mwamba suggested that the DRC would refuse to welcome members of such a mission. “How do you want experts to go to a foreign country without going through the national authorities? (…) How will they get visas? How will they have access to the provinces? He asked himself.

    The result would be the setting up, as in the past in other countries, of independent commissions which have merely gone to border countries and listened to refugees.

    The violence in Kasai involves militia, soldiers and policemen. They killed more than 400 people – including two UN investigators killed in March – and caused the displacement of 1.3 million people.

    Four murderers arrested!

    Mr. Thambwe Mwamba underlined the competence of the Congolese justice system and the progress made on the ongoing investigations. ”  The four main murderers of the two UN experts have been identified and arrested,” said the Minister of Justice. Their trial began on June 5th. The other eight people appearing in the video of the decapitations are on the run. Another trial, on the massacre of civilians by soldiers, is taking its course,  “he reassured.

    However, Thambwe Mwamba did not specify when the two procedures will be completed. When asked about the fate of the main opponent Moses Katumbi, the Minister of Justice said he could return to the DRC when he wants. He will, however, have to appear before the courts.

    As a candidate for the next presidential election, Mr. Katumbi was sentenced to 3 years in prison in a real estate case and has yet to appear in a security trial. Exiled in Brussels, he recently lodged a complaint in Geneva against the Congolese authorities to the Human Rights Committee for “continued fury”. He has already won a small victory.

    In a letter dated 13 June, the UN agency called on the DRC government to allow it to return and ensure its security.

    Instruction in Belgium

    The Minister of Justice, on the other hand, is the subject of an investigation in Belgium in a file dating back to his rebel period from the Congolese Rally for Democracy (RCD) in 1998. Then, opposed to Laurent-Désiré Kabila, he Had announced that his movement had blown up a Boeing in full flight. An airplane that welcomed military Kabilists according to him. A version refuted by the complainant in this file which explains that the plane, taking off from Kindu (1200 km east of Kinshasa) was occupied by fifty civilians.

    The country is going very badly. Congolese. December 2017 approach ”. This is the call of the Bishops launched yesterday, Friday June 23, 2017, in a new thunderous statement issued after the 54th Ordinary Session of the CENCO held in Kinshasa. The Bishops, conscious of their pastoral role, are mobilizing for peace, elections and democratic alternation. They say it themselves, in this declaration with boumerang effects. But who will listen to them? The question remains, however, as long as they have not received favorable echo from the authorities, the Congolese people and the international community.

    Diagnostic

    The Bishops, drawing up a gloomy picture of the country’s overall situation, consider that the only roadmap, the only one that can bring the country out of the impasse, is that of the full and immediate implementation of the Agreement Of 31 December 2016, which provided, inter alia, for the organization of elections at the end of December 2017, the institution of a transition punctuated by consensual management not exceeding 12 months, the destabilization of the political climate, with the release of certain figures Emblematic of the Opposition and, above all, the abandonment of certain legal proceedings, administrative or police harassment against some opponents and the consecration of the freedom of opinion and public demonstrations.

    Where is the CNSA?

    In the same Agreement, as negotiated at the Interdiocesan Center, Gombe, there was also provision for the establishment of a National Council for the Follow-up of the Agreement, CNSA, Etienne Tshisekedi wa Mulumba, Was to preside over to ensure the successful completion of the transition process with a view to holding credible, transparent, democratic and peaceful elections. ” In tempore on suspecto ”, it is said. The agreement proscribed any likelihood of going to a referendum, just as it would banish any idea of ​​constitutional revision. The current Head of State, Joseph Kabila Kabange, under the terms of the New Year’s Eve Agreement, remained in office until the effective establishment of his elected successor.

    Focus on elections

    The Bishops consider, however, that in order to arrive at the elections within the deadlines set by the Agreement, it was necessary that voter registration should take place in record time and that an electoral calendar and an electoral register should be published before At the end of July 2017. However, to date, the pace of this enrollment in the dropper, worried less than it reassures. The Bishops, in their defending body, believe that by the time of December 2017, it is more than time to challenge the Congolese authorities, the CENI, the government and the Congolese people so that arrangements are made, To avoid, certainly, falling into a new trap of institutional and political stagnation.

    Thorns

    The death of Tshisekedi wa Mulumba on 1 February 2017 at the Clinique Sainte Elisabeth in Brussels, Belgium, shortly before the signing of the Particular Arrangement which was supposed to serve as a basis for the application of this Agreement, paradoxically complicated The equation, with the atomization of the Rally, its mega political platform. Moreover, the appointment and nomination of two Prime Ministers, within a few months, in the absence of a genuine consensus, would not have contributed to the progress of the mechanisms which, Putting the electoral process back on track once and for all. The Bishops, drawing lessons from the cataclysm and the chaos on the horizon, demand that the elections be held at the end of December 2017. They also rely on the Congolese people and invite them to Take its destiny into its own hands. To the international community, the Bishops ask for a significant accompaniment to the normalization of the electoral process, although it is still confronted, at least, so far, with many pitfalls.

    Hello ?

    Salvation is also in line with UN Security Council Resolution 2348, which, since March 2017, recalled the urgent need for all parties engaged in direct discussions not to step on Spirit and letter of the December 31, 2016 Agreement, laboriously negotiated, from December 8, 2016 to March 27, 2017.

    Temperature

    As for the drama at Grand Kasai, the Bishops have no tongue in their pockets.

    They demand an independent and serious investigation into these inhuman afflictions. The socio-economic situation undermines the main levers and aggregates of the macroeconomic framework, the brutal and vertiginous fall of the Congolese Franc, the surge in the prices of goods and services on the market, Speculation and other deterioration of the business climate, threats to strike, and all the disturbances that are undoubtedly true signs of a disaster with multiple feuds and collateral damage.

    Call

    Yet a little good governance was enough to stop this descent into the underworld. Why, then, do we not go back to the spirit that prevailed in 2016, when, for example, we had to approach the last straw before the end of President Kabila’s second and last term? They wonder, in terms that are unique to them, but quite understandable, if we are to identify the substance of their approach. They recommend, on the whole, a return to good feelings and a burst of patriotic pride. In any case, discover, in extenso, this new declaration of the Bishops, which naturally raises mountains.

    The United Bank of Africa (UBA) has launched an inaugural issue of Eurobond 500 million with an oversubscription of 240% of international investors. The information was made public by Kennedy Uzola, general manager of the bank.

    “I am pleased to announce that our bank has successfully raised $ 500 million in the international capital market in the framework of a first Eurobond, which has been over-subscribed by 240%. After reviewing more than $ 1.3 billion in orders from nearly 200 investors across the globe (United Kingdom, Europe, Asia, Middle East, United States, etc.), the co-chief arrangers Of the issuance reduced demand to $ 1.2 billion. This important demand from investors reflects the appetite of international investors for UBA’s credit and is in line with the Group’s pan-African strategy, “said the head of the Pan-African bank.

    He said that this first Eurobond was evaluated by Fitch (stable B outlook) and S & P (stable B outlook), which is the same rating given to the Bank by the two agencies and is at the same level as the sovereign rating Of Nigeria, given our size and scale.

    “The bond was issued at a nominal rate of 7.75%. This rate is considered by the community of international investors as the best possible for a first issue of a financial institution of Nigerian origin, in the current state of the market, “said Kennedy Uzoka.

    The general manager of UBA has welcomed investor confidence in the success of this fundraising event.

    “I believe that the success of this dollar-denominated offer further demonstrates the confidence of international investors in the fundamental fundamentals of our group. The $ 500 million obligation will complete our stable funding base and support the growth of our balance sheet and overall business. More importantly, this medium-term financing will strengthen our position in the financing of profitable projects with impact on the African continent. “Kennedy Uzoka also expressed his gratitude to his team. “I would like to congratulate the team and all those who contributed to making this first show a resounding success. I urge all of you to remain committed, as we work together to make UBA the undisputed leader of African banking space.

     Friday, June 30, is already at the end of this week. In principle, it is the big day of festivity, the day the RD. Congo gained national independence and international sovereignty. On that day, the sun rose on a good foot, the Congolese jubilated and danced to the rhythm spirited with fervor and pride of the reconquest of the dignity and all the freedoms recognized to the man, so black To take charge of himself and to assume himself before the demands of his own destiny.

    The R & D. Congo, after several decades of painful life under the influence of Belgium, its former metropolitan power, covered its true marks, as a State and as a nation. Today, 57 years later, what about this so-called national independence? What has become of the destiny of this country, which the ancestors, in the national anthem, wanted, at all costs, to build more beautiful than before? What is the level of its economy? What is the state of health of its public institutions? And the social of his people? The Bishops, with their hands on the Bible, set up an indictment of sour taste.

    In a very recent message, they say, loudly, that the country is going very badly. Standing, Congolese! December 2017 approach ”. In their own way, the Bishops return to the issue of the implementation of the Agreement of 31 December 2016, as concluded at the Center Interdiocésain, la Gombe. They appeal to the patriotic sense of all the parties involved in direct discussions so far that the Agreement, far from being selectively applied, is rather the basis of the consensus without which it is impossible to move towards elections By the end of December 2017.

    The Bishops therefore demand that the Congolese authorities make an effort to provide the CENI with substantial resources for the end of the enlistment operation and that by the end of July the electoral register Be published, together with the electoral calendar. This would, in their view, allow them to remain within the limits laid down in this Agreement and, above all, to preserve peace during this last turn towards democratic alternation. On the other hand, Lambert Mende, Spokesman for the Government, believes that the Bishops, in their message, nevertheless have good premises, but they draw false conclusions. For him, indeed, the Bishops retract the truth and flee it in superfluous circumlocutions and other idle assertions. Why, he wondered, did they not point to the authors of the blockage of the Particular Arrangement until the day when the Head of State, Joseph Kabila Kabange, using his prerogatives On 5 April, decided to address the two Houses of Parliament, meeting in congress, before appointing the current Prime Minister, Bruno Tshibala Nzenzhe, on 7 April 2017, while throwing in the towel To his predecessor, Samy Badibanga, six months later?

    Is it the Presidential Majority that would be responsible for the death of Tshisekedi on February 1, 2017, so that afterwards the Rassemblement would be atomized to the point of being unable to speak with a single voice before the stakes as important as Were the establishment of the government, the installation of the CNSA, or the restructuring of democracy support institutions, such as the CENI or the CSAC? Hard to say.

    However, we are witnessing the escalation of verbal diarrhea. Speeches become sharp again. In both camps, one swears only on elections, when it is known that they will not take place, due to the absence of guarantees and very tight time. Hypocrisy or strategy? Because, the decoration is planted for a new duel with the knife to the patibular effects.
