The public policies implemented in the DRC have created a gap between the political leaders who are piloting the ship of state only for themselves while leaving the Congolese people far behind. We must not look elsewhere for the cause of our floundering, adrift in a sea of desperation.
That is why I promise to all Congolese that I will always seek to implement an agenda for the benefit all who wish to work and contribute for the better management of our country. In an effort to break with the past, I will appoint a diverse group of men and women at the center of the economy and throughout the government. In this way, a broader range of Congolese will become, not only the main engine and fuel of development, but also the beneficiaries of the fruits of its success.
The reconciliation of the Congolese diaspora around the world with their country is an imperative. We wish to encourage them to join their country men and women back in the DRC, to participate in the work of the re-foundation of a prosperous country for the benefit of ALL of its people. We intend to make the Congolese abroad one of the factors generating economic growth by granting them freedom to transfer funds, trade, and most importantly, invest in their homeland.
We are a country of many divisions, even going back before colonization. These divisions have often been used to further divide us, weaken us, manipulate us for the benefit of a few self-anointed elites. I believe the time has come now for us to stand and take steps toward a different destiny, toward unity, toward hope, and toward a productive civilized society as the beating heart of an emerging Africa.
