DRC: OEARSE says "Stop Inga 3" and demands a preliminary strategic environmental study

The Observatory for studies and support for social and environmental responsibility (OEARSE) has, in a memorandum, called stop Inga 3 and asked the President of the Republic to sponsor a strategic environmental assessment prior to taking any commitment. This concerns not only the Inga 3 project but also all the other phases of the Grand Inga.

In this document addressed to Félix Antoine Tshisekedi, Tuesday, August 20, 2019, the opening day of the Forum on Electric Energy organized, under his patronage in Matadi, the signatories-activists of the civil society affirm to note with which the project Inga 3 is one of the priorities of the head of state’s diplomatic energy agenda, both internally and externally.

Nevertheless, insists OEARSE, the laws of the Republic of which he is the guarantor require, at the end of the Article 3 of the Decree n ° 14/019 of August 2nd, 2014 fixing the rules of operation of the procedural mechanisms of the protection of the environment , to sponsor the Congolese Environment Agency: « a strategic environmental assessment. »

The latter, recalls OEARSE, « is aimed at the prior systematic examination of the environmental consequences of a policy, plan or program drawn up by the State, the province, the decentralized territorial entity or the establishment public. »

This structure of the Congolese civil society hopes that any decision that the head of state will take as guarantor of the nation in the energy sector, should go in the direction of making the interest of the population a priority « the people first. « 

« This is why our organization says STOP INGA 3 and asks you to stop all the initiatives going in the direction of promoting the INGA 3 and Grand Inga project until the preliminary realization of a strategic environmental assessment, » reads in the memorandum.

Also, she asks the President of the Republic to ensure the opening of a framework of exchange where the girls and sons of the country could discuss in a specific way with his institution on their concerns related to the project Inga 3 and big Inga.

And to insist: « in the energy sector, we can not help you to build a modern, peaceful, democratic and citizen-friendly state unless the guiding decisions of your energy development program take into account the balance between the internal need and the geostrategic stakes of the potential, of the taking into account of the questions of the social and environmental impact on the communities.  »

DRC: Ogefrem, the Inter-Union against the rehabilitation of nine agents dismissed for embezzlement

The inter-union of the Multimodal Freight Management Office (Ogefrem) has just opposed its categorical refusal to see being rehabilitated the nine agents and cadres dismissed for embezzlement of over a million US dollars and insubordination. This position was revealed during a press briefing on Monday 19 August 2019 in the parish hall of Fatima in Kinshasa.

Indeed, these trade unionists began by denouncing a sort of fierceness and unfortunate interferences on the part of political actors in the management of the company.

« The inter-union was informed by social networks, before arriving at their final destination, a series of correspondence from the chief of staff of the Head of State, the Deputy Prime Minister in charge of Transport ai . and the chairman of the board of directors of Ogefrem, « she says.

According to the syndicalists, all these correspondences have as sources either contradictory memos coming from unauthorized persons, or based on erroneous information.

 

The inter-union deplores « the fact that the chief of staff of the head of state is misled by people who seek to harm not only this enterprise state that stands out for its remarkable recovery since the implementation. place of the new management committee, headed by Patience Sayiba.  »

Also, she laments, this policy interference that promotes clientelism instead of the interests of agents who have seen their salaries be paid regularly while with the former management committee, they accumulated late payments.

These agents believe that reinstating agents dismissed for public hijackings in no way in line with the fight against corruption, impunity and embezzlement of public funds advocated by the head of state, Felix Tshisekedi.

Moreover, the inter-union recalls that this file of revocation was well followed and treated not only by the inter-union of the Ogefrem but even more by the general Inspectorate of the work, the Primature where an ad hoc committee was even instituted by order of President Kabila at that time.

She calls on the competent authorities’ wisdom to reverse this decision taken under the influence of ill-intentioned persons and without consulting her beforehand.

She warns against anyone trying to create tension in this company and invites agents to calm down while waiting for his slogan.
