The government of Democratic Republic of Congo has stepped up attempts to block opposition leader Moise Katumbi’s ambition to contest the presidency during the December 2018 election. President Joseph Kabila allegedly recently ordered the withdrawal of Katumbi’s passport to curtail his mobilization. The authorities revoked Katumbi’s passport a decision they have declined to erescind. Katumbi was advised last week by Belgian airport services, after returning from a trip to Israel, that his semi-biometric passport had been withdrawn from the system. A request to the Congolese Embassy in Belgium for a full biometric passport was rejected in February “without valid reason,†his office said in a statement published on his verified Twitter account. “This incident illustrates the continued fierceness of the regime†against Katumbi, his office said. “It confirms also the instrumentalization of state institutions by the Kinshasa regime.†Katumbi, the former governor of copper-rich Katanga province, has been in self-imposed exiled since May 2016, soon after he split with President Joseph Kabila and announced an intention to replace his one-time boss. A month later, he was convicted in absentia for illegally selling a property, while two other investigations remain open — including allegations he violated Congo’s ban on dual citizenship. Katumbi denies the allegations, which he says are politically motivated. Polls in the run-up to the elections show Katumbi as the people’s favourite to replace Kabila.

The Harry Kalaba linked Democratic Party has written to Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo appealing to him to intervene in the de-registration of the Party. Spokesperson Judith Kabema has said the appeal to the Minister is in line with Section 16 of the societies Act cap 119 of the laws of Zambia. She said the appeal operates as a stay to the Chief Registrar’s decision to deregister the Party and allow functionality to continue until the minister responds to the appeal. “This Section provides that where the certificate of registration had been cancelled by Registrar, the aggrieved party may appeal to the Minister within 21 days.  The Act does not go further to provide a time frame within which the appeal must be heard by the Minister,” Kabemba said. She However added that section 23 (1) provides in the relevant parts that every society, other than a statutory society, shall be deemed to be an unlawful society. “The provision is clear that so long as the appeal remains pending, our party will continue being legally in existence and can continue  to exercise our rights and conduct our activities,” she added. Kabemba has since advised party members to continue with normal activities of country wide mobilization and offer checks and balances in the governance of the nation. She said the Democratic Party will operate without fear as the appeal mechanism as provided in the Act and fortified by case law, grants sufficient protection until determination of the Appeal by the Minister of Home affairs.
