UNBALANCED CABINET: Maniema Province National Deputies Saddened by Exclusion From New Cabinet

National deputies in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Maniema Province have expressed their dissatisfaction over the ministerial appointments made by Prime Minister Judith Suminwa Tuluka who did not appoint a single native from that region.

In a statement made on Wednesday, in Kinshasa, the Maniema lawmakers said they were surprised to see that no daughter or son from their province was appointed among the 54 members of the government of the Republic and are left to rely on President Felix Tshisekedi for reparation.

According to the elected officials from Maniema, the constitution in its article 90, paragraph 3, stipulates that the composition of the government must take into account national representativeness.

“The province of Maniema is therefore not represented either in the office of the National Assembly or in the government of the Republic, which worries the entire population of Maniema that we represent. However, the national deputies of Maniema are surprised to see that no daughter or son has had the chance to be appointed among the 54 members of the government of the Republic, while our constitution in its article 90 paragraph 3, stipulates that the composition of the government must take into account representativeness,” the statement reads.

The national deputies also indicated that the country is facing several challenges to be met where all sectors of life have become priorities, hence the need for the combined efforts of all provinces to achieve national cohesion.
