ex-President Joseph Kabila leaves Lubumbashi for a stay in the United Arab Emirates


Former Congolese President Joseph Kabila arrived in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Monday for a stay of a few days – his first abroad, it seems, since leaving office in January 2019 – Congolese media reported, citing the entourage of the former head of state.

Mr. Kabila arrived in Abu Dhabi from Lusaka, the Zambian capital, after spending several months in his stronghold of Lubumbashi (south-eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo).

The life senator is responding to a long-standing invitation, his diplomatic adviser, Barnabé Kikaya ben Karubi, told several Congolese media.

This trip by Mr. Kabila to the UAE comes in the context of a standoff with his successor, Félix Tshisekedi, who managed to weaken the Common Front for Congo (FCC, the Kabila camp) by gathering a new majority – the “Sacred union“of the Nation – after ending the coalition he formed with his predecessor.

Mr. Kabila also saw the soldiers in charge of his residences, including the one known as GLM in Kinshasa, being replaced by the police.

He is accompanied to the United Arab Emirates by four officers who received a “exit permit“signed by the head of the Military House of President Tshisekedi, Major General Franck Buamunda Ntumba, and valid”for a fifteen-day service mission“, according to the document circulating on social networks.
