It is the end of a very long wait in the DRC. Prime Minister Sylvestre Illunga Illunkamba finally unveiled the composition of his government tonight at around 5 am, Kinshasa time, three months after his appointment and seven months after the inauguration of President Tshisekedi. It has been a long and difficult process to form a coalition government between the platforms of President Tshisekedi and former President Kabila, which has retained a majority in Parliament.
It is a government with 76.9% of personalities who have never taken part in a government.
And as expected, it is Joseph Kabila's Common Front for Congo (FCC) that retains the majority of positions, even though they have most often been attributed to relatively new figures at this level of responsibility, even though note, however, the presence of some caciques as Minister Azarias Ruberwa Manywa who inherits the Decentralization or Steve Mbikayi Mabuluki who was in the outgoing government. Steve Mbikayi will be in Humanitarian Affairs.
The Cach in the Interior
As for the regal posts, we remember that the Coalition for Change (Cach) and the FCC decided to separate. Ex-President Kabila retains control over the justice he entrusts to one of his lieutenants, Celestin Tunda Ya Kasende, as well as the Defense that returns to Aimé Ngoy Mukena.
As expected, President Tshisekedi's Cach platform is laying hands on the Interior, entrusted to Gilbert Kankonde Malamba, a faithful of the current head of state, who until now was national secretary in charge of his party's external relations. Union for Democracy and Social Progress (UDPS). The head of state also gets foreign affairs where he places a woman, Marie Tumba Nzeza, a little known personality.
17% of portfolios to women
Note that the highly strategic and coveted Ministry of Finance returns to José Sele Yalaghuli, considered a close relative of former Prime Minister Matata Ponyo.
A government in which 17% of the portfolios were awarded to women. " This is not enough ," admitted the Prime Minister who explained however that this small proportion was weighted by the quality of the portfolios attributed to certain female personalities in this government.
