Jean-Pierre Bemba, who is the first politician to respond to the Head of State's invitation, exchanged aside with him for several minutes. This is the first time that the two political actors have met since the pre-election period of 2018.
In turn, the spiritual leader of the Kimbanguist church Simon Kimbangu Kiangani called on the Congolese to remain focused in prayer, following talks with the President of the Republic, Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo.
The Head of the Kimbanguist Church said he was the bearer, to the Head of State, of a message of peace and encouragement as to the initiative to listen to the living forces of the nation with a view to the creation of the Sacred Union.
For their part, the comedians said they were satisfied to be received by the Head of State Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo, who promised to take into account their proposals and their point of view on the current situation in the country.
Reçu aussi par le chef de l’Etat, renchérit le web journal lessentielrdc.info, le professeur André Yoka a indiqué, à l’issue des entretiens avec le Président Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo, que la palabre est l’un des fondamentaux de la culture africaine.
Les mouvements pro démocratie n’étaient pas en reste. Au cours des entretiens qu’ils ont eus mercredi dans le cadre des consultations présidentielles, les mouvements citoyens Filimbi, Echa et Lucha ont demandé au Chef de l’Etat, Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo, de mettre fin de la coalition FCC-CACH.
Les mouvements citoyens ont aussi remis un mémo au Chef de l’Etat qui explicite les questions de sécurité et justice, la situation socio-économique et les réformes institutionnelles.
Par ailleurs, le Chef de l’Etat s’est aussi entretenu, le même mercredi, avec les délégués de l’Association des Handicapés, des Associations féminines, les responsables des universités et instituts supérieurs de la RDC et les délégués de la Fédération des Entreprises du Congo (FEC).
Pour le Comité Laïc de Coordination (CLC) la dissolution de la coalition FCC-CACH est une nécessité, a déclaré le coordinateur du CLC, le Pr Isidore Ndaywell, à l’issue de l’entrevue avec le Président Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo, dans le cadre des consultations présidentielles.
Le Prof Isidore Ndaywell a indiqué avoir remis un mémo au Chef de l’Etat qui reprend les trois préoccupations essentielles à savoir: la réhabilitation de l’autorité de l’Etat sur toute l’étendue du territoire, la crédibilisation des élections de 2023 ainsi que la relance économique et sociale.
In the meantime, Shadary, Fayulu and Muzito are expected at the national consultations note Forum des As. All three have received an invitation to take part in these meetings at the Palace of the Nation. No wonder this outstretched hand of the Head of State is causing waves, notes Forum des As. Particularly in the camps of these three guests, not at all willing to take the bait. According to sources close to the state protocol, the invitations have already been deposited in the residences of the two candidates for the presidential election of December 30, 2018.In the entourage of Martin Fayulu, information on the filing of invitation by the presidential services to Faden House, is neither confirmed nor denied. Contacted, a relative of the standard bearer of Ecide lifts a point of veil. He tells us to this effect "that an invitation is not a summons", stressing in this regard that his leader will not make the trip to the Palace of the Nation. Lisanga Bonganga, lieutenant of Martin Fayulu, maintains that Lamuka's acting coordinator denies Felix Tshisekedi the quality of organizing the national consultations, especially "as he is part of the problem". According to the former minister of sport, Fayulu remains in favor of a dialogue under international mediation which will have to take into account his plan to end the crisis. Having become very popular during the 2018 election campaign, Martin Fayulu has seen his aura gain momentum. Especially when after the publication of the results by the Electoral Center, Catholic bishops loudly proclaimed that he actually won the presidential election. Therefore, he considers himself the elected president and no longer wants to give in to any manipulation.
Steve Kivuata, for his part, confirms the non-participation of Adolphe Muzito, also invited to these consultations. Like Fayulu in fact, the president of New Elan has remained firm in his position, reinforcing the hard wing of Lamuka, not at all ready to bow to the one that “the people's soldier” accuses of having perpetrated an “electoral hold-up”. Regardless, in the face of the impossible survival of the FCC-CACH at the AFDC Congress in Bahati, the Udps Kabund predicts the new wind, predicts the Potential. For my colleague, the survival of the FCC-CACH coalition becomes impossible or otherwise is a miracle. This is a coalition that must prepare to make way for a new political class that will work for the general interest, said Jean-Marc Kabund. In this new political requalification of the patriots engaged behind the Head of State within the Sacred Union of the Nation, we will have to reckon with Bahati Lukwebo’s AFDC-A. And the end of duplication has sounded. President ai's prediction of the presidential party should be taken seriously. "Now that things are clear, AFDC will have an outcome very soon," said Jean Marc Kabund. And as many observers believe, writes the newspaper on Avenue Bas Congo in Kinshasa, the dislocation of the governing coalition has certainly reached the point of no return. All the ingredients were there. The firmness of the Head of State not to back down in the face of sirens of constitutional violation in the appointments to the High Court, followed by the indelicacy of the FCC's institutional animators in the organization and participation in the swearing-in ceremony Constitutional Court judges sealed the end of a government coalition characterized by tension and a glaring lack of political frankness.
