In the DRC, political lines seem to be shifting, especially on the side of the JRC platform of former President Joseph Kabila. The leader of the Alliance of Democratic Forces in the Congo and Allies (AFDCA), Modeste Bahati Lukwebo, has in fact been declared persona non grata by tenors of the FCC. But he can count on a large number of elected officials and has no intention of letting it go, even if it means getting closer to President Tshisekedi’s UDPS.
as reported from Kinshasa,
Most recently in Goma, AFDC supporters and allies Many were with members of the Union for Democracy and Social Progress (UDPS), the Presidential Party, to welcome President Félix Antoine Tshisekedi.
“We are a completely autonomous group, which means that we can enter into an alliance with any other political force in the country for the sake of the Congolese people. So far, we have not entered into any alliance with anyone. We are currently working on seeing what our final positioning will be by 2023, ”explains Modeste Bahati Lukwebo.
For the Alliance of Democratic Forces in the Congo and Allies (AFDC-A), for which it is the moral authority, Modest Bahati Lukwebo recalls the reforms requested by the Platform, reforms opposed to the reforms of the Common Front of the Congo (FCC): “We support the institutions of the Republic, starting with the President of the Republic and his Government. At present, we have formulated all the other reforms as we understand them at the level of AFDC-A. ”
After the AFDC and the Allies, other forces and personalities also left the FCC ship. This is the case with Emmanuel Ilunga Ngoie’s Republican Action for Progress (ARP), also the case with Professor Tshibangu Kalala, a former member of the Tshibala government.
