SABBATICAL LEAVE: Ex-Lualaba Governor Takes Break From Politics

Former Lualaba governor Richard Muyej has suspended all political activities until further notice in what appears to be an indefinite sabbatical leave.

Muyej, who recently announced he was officially leaving his post two years after being blocked from accessing his office by President Felix Tshisekedi and his government, says he had taken time to reflect on his next step.

“After my resignation, I also decided to suspend all political activities until further notice,” he said.

Muyej has paid glowing tribute to former president Joseph Kabila whom he said he will have to consult before announcing his next move, “I must officially talk about it to the moral authority of my party, president Joseph Kabila, to whom I would like to express all my gratitude.”

The once-upon-a-time interior minister says he will not act out of frustration but take time to recover from the mental dentation imposed on him by the ruling party.

“But I won’t do anything in a brutal way. I need to give myself a little more time to measure my responsibility in the exceptional circumstances where we are both at the level of the country and my province, Lualaba,,” he said.

Muyej is best remember for a leadership that attracted investment to Kolwezi, the capital of Lualaba, which was crowned internationally as the new world capital of cobalt and copper.
