According to the report read by the government spokesman, Felix Tshisekedi devoted most of this meeting to recalling the priorities and the mode of conduct of his ministers. He thus called on them to strictly observe solidarity between members, to preserve the secrecy of deliberation, hierarchical subordination and to cultivate collegiality.
” You have the obligation of the results “, he launched to them at the start of the meeting which lasted three and a half hours. Just over eight months before the presidential election, he urged his ministers to ” stay focused on the expectations of the population.
These include the return of peace, security and the defense of the territory. Expected results for Deputy Prime Ministers Peter Kazadi and Jean Pierre Bemba.
Tshisekedi also expects Vital Kamerhe, former chief of staff who became deputy prime minister in charge of the economy, to improve purchasing power by stabilizing the national currency which has plummeted against the US dollar. It will also be responsible for improving the socio-economic conditions of the populations.
