Tshisekedi's advisors wade into Albert Yuma affair
Several members of Félix Tshisekedi's entourage are implicated in the controversy surrounding the re-election of the president of the Fédération des entreprises du Congo.
Faced with inquiries into the company's governance, production at a virtual standstill and finances in the doldrums, Sama Lukonde has taken over the helm of a Gécamines teetering on the brink. In a bid to shore up the Congolese state-owned mining company, he has promised to pay salary arrears with immediate effect.
