Well written statement by our socialist comrade. I am just dissappointed that he has today made a 180 degree turn from his hard stance on myself and the SADC OBSERVER MISSION during the Zimbabwean election. If I, Nevers Mumba advocated for Credible, Free and fair elections, then I am accused of being a puppet of the West who is championing regime change in Zimbabwe.

But he can stand on an anthill and advocate for the very same things and further accuses President Tshisekedi even though he is not an observer and he has no facts from the ground.

Ichalo Ichi.

FRED M’MEMBE WRITES:

SADC SHOULD HELP DRC HOLD CREDIBLE, FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) should help the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Mr Felix Tshisekedi, in particular, to hold peaceful, credible, free and fair presidential and parliamentary elections slated for December 20, 2023.

Incumbent President Tshisekedi is seeking re-election after being in power for four years. Without a doubt, the stakes are high for Mr Tshisekedi, who has presided over a highly corrupt, tribal and inefficient regime, which has made the political and socio-economic situation for the Congolese people far worse than before.

We therefore, implore SADC to take keen interest in the unfortunate happenings in the DRC and ensure that the authorities adopt the necessary steps to warrant that next week’s elections will meet acceptable standards, and will not threaten the rights of citizens to freely and proudly elect their representatives.

We make this call due to the harsh pre-election environment prevailing in the DRC at the moment, which is seriously undermining the electoral process owing to the Tshisekedi regime’s use of intimidation, excessive violence and other electoral-related violations against the leading challenger Mr Moise Katumbi and Ensemble Pour La Republique (Together for the Republic).

Let SADC help the DRC authorities to respect and implement the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance, as well as the SADC Principles and Guidelines Governing Democratic Elections.

They must also urge the government of the DRC to ensure that national, regional, and international election observation missions are granted full access to all electoral locations throughout the country.

The political will of the Congolese people must prevail, and the DRC authorities should embrace measures that comform to both local and international laws on elections.

We would like to caution SADC to seriously look into these matters because, as it stands now, the DRC is on the verge of a major electoral crisis, which might plunge the country into chaos.

SADC must be concerned with Mr Tshisekedi’s irresponsible attempts to disturb the electoral process through violence and intimidation because once the DRC implodes, it’s the region that will bear the consequences of the humanitarian crisis that will unfold.

Therefore, it is in the best interest of SADC to proactively address the electoral process ahead of the elections before the situation degenerates into chaos.

Allowing the current criminality, impunity, and electoral fraud in the DRC to continue without any intervention from SADC is postponing trouble for the region.

  1. Thank you Pastor Mumba. Mmembe is full of deceit and hatred. Discernment is key when dealing with such people & Nevers just got the right discernment, consistency and moral standing on this score.

  2. Geniune call though the writer seems biased against Tshisekedi and in favor of regime change. Only a few months ago this same man condemned SADC for pointing out irregularities in Zimbabwe elections organized and rigged by his fellow Marxist Munangagwa.
