Clash between Gécamines and the government. Reaction from the ministry of mines
who disavows the Prime Minister who resigns a few days later to make place for a successor nominated on the basis of the agreement resulting from the dialogue between the presidential majority and part of the opposition.
Agreement dented by a declaration of President Kabila to a delegation of the Security Council visiting the DRC. And all this happens while Gécamines is accused of having secretly sold a mine whereas the law prescribes that such transactions are to be made public. In the meantime, Lundin sold its shares in TFM to a Chinese company. Observers of the mining sector are disconcerted by this imbroglio that damages the reputation of the mining industry and is detrimental to the business climate in the DRC.
