Finally, DR Congo President Now in Full Control of Govt

President Félix Tshisekedi has named a new cabinet, two months after the appointment of Prime Minister Sama Lukonde. This team of 56 ministers - 41 men and 15 women - is his first cabinet after the collapse of the coalition with former president Joseph Kabila's 'Front Commun pour le Congo' (FCC). The new team that President Tshisekedi calls "the warriors" is tasked with reviving the Congolese economy. It is also expected to address insecurity, particularly in the eastern provinces of the DRC. The new cabinet will have to be vetted by the National Assembly before Prime Minister Lukonde presents his government's programmes. He said his government's priorities will be security, health, education, justice, agriculture, fisheries and livestock, economy, the electoral process, infrastructure, and the digital economy.
