Kinshasa, 05 March, 2021 / 5:48 pm (ACI Africa).
Catholic Bishops in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) want integrity to be prioritized in government appointments following the termination of the mandate of the coalition that had been formed between the party of the President and that of his predecessor.
DRC’s President Felix Tshisekedi announced the termination of the mandate of the coalition formed between his Cap for Change (Cach) party and that of Joseph Kabila, the Common Front for the Congo (FCC), saying the alliance did "not allow the implementation of the programme that brought me to the Presidency."
In a statement released Monday, March 1, members of the National Episcopal Conference of Congo (CENCO) urge the country’s leadership to appoint only persons with integrity, having people’s interest at heart.
“Only men and women who have shown good ethics in their past and who have experience in the required field, concerned about the well-being of the population, deserve to be selected to manage State institutions and public enterprises,” Catholic Bishops in the Central African nation say.
They add in reference to the appointing authorities, “We invite them to set to work in accordance with the legal provisions, giving priority to the well-being of the population and national cohesion.”
