information assignment to Bukavu about companies

2

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), eight national deputies are expected this Thursday, September 9, in Bukavu, South Kivu. This inquiry, mandated by the President of the National Assembly, Christophe Mboso, is led by the deputy of this province, Jean-Claude Kibala, and must highlight the need to shut down or not six Chinese companies, accused of flouting the country’s laws. This decision was taken by the governor of southern Kivu, but it is contested on the form at the national level by the Minister of Mining, who considers it not his responsibility.

For the head of the parliamentary information mission, it is too early to resolve the legal dispute between the governor of the province of South Kivu and the minister of mining. The Honorable Jean-Claude Kibala believes that the laws of the land allow privileges for the two personalities and that the important thing is rather to ask about the situation on the ground.

Talk to the population The deputies therefore intend to meet with all civilian and military authorities in Bukavu. This weekend they will go to the Mwenga territory where the disputed Chinese companies operate, talk to them and discuss with the people. Civil society accuses senior political and military figures of illegally supporting the installation of these companies.

Investigate all allegations The fact-finding mission promises to investigate all allegations, including the presence of officers securing the concessions. The Governor of South Kivu recalls having taken this measure of suspension as a precautionary measure. He says he is waiting for the results of the various investigations before he wants to speak again on the issue. The Minister of Mining wrote to the Prime Minister last month to complain about the suspension when her inspectors worked on the case to shed light on the situation of these Chinese companies.
