DRC PRESIDENT TSHISEKEDI, KABILA STRIKE DEAL … Ex-Leader Seeks Guaranteed Immunity from Prosecution

Former DR Congo president Joseph Kabila and his successor Felix Tshisekedi have struck a deal in which Kabila is guaranteed immunity from prosecution for any of the alleged crimes committed during his 18 year rule.

The deal will also see an amendment to the constitution which will result in future presidents being elected through parliament, sources in Kinshasa have disclosed.

The deal has so far been endorsed by Kenya, Tanzania and Egypt but there has been no luck with the fourth country South Africa who have insisted they want thorough details of the agreement and its implications on the Congolese.

“What is happening is sad and may lead to further instability. Kabila is afraid of being prosecuted for the crimes he committed so as part of what he’s agreed with Felix Tshisekedi, the constitution will be changed to ensure 100 percent immunity,” the sources said.

“And since Kabila still has plans of bouncing back as president, he wants the constitution to be amended so that future presidents are elected through parliament. Kabila knows he controls the Congolese parliament since his party has the majority so he’s effectively guaranteed of a smooth re-election after 5 years as president.”

“This deal was facilitated by Kenya. Tanzania and Egypt are other witnesses but South Africa have refused because Kabila rejected former president Thabo Mbeki as a mediator with the opposition.”

The sources called for other African countries to keep interest in the political situation in the DR Congo.

    Well this deal was struck just before the elections.Tshisekedi used to hold dark corner meetings with Kabila.The animal farm kind of admnstration of suiting the constitution will not work in Congo.

    let the people of congo decide how they want to be governed , a referendum should be carried out for the first time in that once upon a time demn country

    All these arrangements will be short lived!! One person cannot hold the country to ransom forever. All those countries brokering these “DIRTY DEALS” are very far from the DRC to shoulder the full effects of their actions. They are only looking at their business interests. Even Tanzania, a neighbor with the DRC has a huge Lake a divider, refugees do not easily run there when hell breaks lose!! Happy S.Africa has refused to be used in these charade of manipulation, I just wonder why they even had to congratulate Tshisekedi in the the first place!!

    Why kabila is near to the elected president? Let him think of other things not about presidency.

    It Seems Kabila Is Controlling Tshisekedi’s Minds, That Means Nothing Has Changed Where Leadership Is Concerned, Tshisekedi Will Never Put That Mineral Rich Nation Where It Should Be If He Will Allow Kabila To Be Closer To Him, Kabila Is Criminal Minded.

    After reassurance of no prosecution he has shaved his disgusting bear.

    I hope what you are reporting is not fake news

  12. uncle muzo

    Tshisekedi is a puppet not a president…congolese wakeup and fight for your rights.

  13. Son of the soil

    Kindly report fairly. We need fairness and not guessed work.

    I am not convinced on this report to be genuine because it is too good to be true, Tshisekedi knows what people are able to do at this particular moment for him to jeopardize his political life. Reporter make sure you do something to show that you and whoever giving you information are respecting Congolese
