Kinshasa, 09 November, 2020 / 8:20 pm (ACI Africa).
Catholic Bishops in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have, in a collective memorandum, called on the President of the Central African nation to prioritize policies that contribute toward the well-being of the Congolese.
In an audience with President Felix Tshisekedi Monday, November 9, the members of the National Episcopal Conference of Congo (CENCO) presented the memorandum that outlines proposals aimed at helping the ruling coalition stakeholders resolve the current differences and focus on all that fosters the welfare of the people of God in DRC.
“With regard to the political situation in our country, one thing seems certain to us. There is a need for a political solution that respects the Congolese people. With the current dynamics of the coalition, we cannot expect the reconstruction of the country,” CENCO members say in their November 9 collective document.
They urge the head of state to “seriously evaluate the content of the Agreement that regulates the coalition and the way it functions to see if there is a possibility of an internal revolution.”
“If not, as the guarantor of the Nation, it is up to you to assume your responsibilities and take, in soul and conscience, before God and the Nation, the appropriate decision by virtue of article 69 of the Constitution,” the Catholic Bishops in DRC say in the memorandum shared with ACI Africa.
