DRC: Update from the government on the “FARDC reservists” file.
This was announced by the Minister of Communication and Media Patrick Muyaya last Saturday in Kinshasa, at the end of the meeting of the steering committee of the program.
“As you know, from January 12, 2023, the President of the Republic issued an order that organizes the Local Development Program for 145 territories. We had the opportunity to have the first reports from various executive agencies. It’s frankly amazing that you say you can’t see anything. This means that the communication component is not yet well received. This is one of the points we discussed today. The agencies presented here can briefly tell you what they have already managed to do. But the main work has already begun. There are even first works that can be delivered next monthPatrick Muaya reported.
According to the government spokesman, these are schools, health centers and administrative buildings.
“There was a lot of discussion about farm roads. There are 38,000 km to be done under this project. There are also down payments that are paid by the government. We discussed the interconnection of these roads with roads of provincial and even national interest. This means that the whole country is under construction. And from next week we can have all the image details of the work being done by BCeCo, CFEF and UNDP.Patrick Muyaya added.
For his part, BCECO Director General Jean Mabi Mulumba confirmed that his institution has launched the construction of 313 infrastructures, including 189 schools and 124 health centers in the 48 territories under its jurisdiction. Images continue to circulate showing what they are doing, he said.
