Adam Bombole très populaire à Mbandaka

Quatre candidats à l’élection présidentielle viennent de passer par le chef- lieu de la province de l’Equateur. Il s’agit d’Etienne Tshisekedi, Adam Bombole, Kengo wa Dondo et Vital Kamerhe. Selon certaines sources en provenance de Mbandaka, Adam Bombole aurait réussi à mobiliser à sa manière les «Bana ekanga».

Originaire de la province de l’Equateur, Adam Bombole a séjourné dans la ville de Mbandaka le week-end passé et a fait le tour de la ville où il est resté pendant deux jours avant de regagner la capitale. Selon des témoins, Adam Bombole a drainé beaucoup de monde à Mbandaka. Mais aucun candidat n’a pu mobiliser autant de monde que l’homme du changement, Etienne Tshisekedi.

Déjà, quand François Mwamba, alors secrétaire général du MLC, était descendu dans cette ville avec Buse pour l’élection du gouverneur de la ville, quelques habitants de Mbandaka confondaient l’ex-secrétaire général du MLC avec Adam Bombole. Heureusement, certaines personnes étaient là pour donner la vraie identité de François Mwamba et éviter toute confusion possible.

La musique y est pour quelque chose. Bien des musiciens congolais ont pendant plusieurs années lancé le nom d’Adam Bombole dans leurs œuvres et aidé ainsi à le rendre populaire non seulement à Mbandaka, mais aussi à travers tout le pays. Dans tous les cas, les urnes auront le dernier mot. Adam Bombole doit dire merci aux artistes musiciens.

  1. josevery fascinating, marie. i’d be down for stnoehimg like that AS LONG AS the government corporation that runs it all has a mix of both congolese and international managers. the former would ensure legitimacy whereas the latter would put a check on predation. in terms of Rich’s points about Vital, i think it might be stnoehimg like this: (big guess here)- vital and kengo agree to back ET- but their parties continue campaign for national assembly and provincial assembly seats- based on how they do, and assuming ET wins, things are divided accordingly.- so, as an example: * UNC wins 20% of seats, UDPS wins 30%, MLC wins 15%, and the balance is PPRD an others. * whoever gets the most gets the right to choose a prime minister- so UNC and this would likely mean Vital as PM. Given he is a brilliant political tactician and knows gov’t this would likely please everybody. * then, the like 60-70 ministers with portfolios would be further divided based on these numbers. * then, whatever Executive Office that exists (does the Prez in the Congo have his own staff of advisers and such? not sure) perhaps UDPS takes that all. – this would ofcourse sideline other parties- and there are hundreds- but if such a joint ticket occurs it would be a BOMBSHELL and set off a flood of parties seeking access to the deal. what happens with them? who knows but the smart money is ignoring them until the dust settles. – a Plan B is needed given Kabila could ofcourse win- by hook or crook. In that case, there would still need to be a meeting of the minds given we must remember Kabila is running not as PPRD but as an independent- very smart of him. So, taking Rich’s ideas we could end up with a sharply reduced PPRD in the Assembly and provinces (or not ofcourse) and UDPS, UNC, and a weaker MLC. In that case, we have a scenario similar to America where one party controls the Presidency and where another controls the lower Congress. Indeed, if the opposition is smart they should take a playbook from Republicans and block, frustrate, and investigate the hell out of Kabila. Divided government in the Congo would be THE BEST THING for the Congo on A LOT of levels. If Kabila had to deal with a rebellious Assembly, which he does not have to do now, it would strengthen Congo’s institutions and encourage more balance between the executive and legislative branch which does not exist today. In this sense I reject, to a degree, the need for a joint opposition . I’d rather Vital’s call for a circling of the opposition , wherebye they encircle Kabila and clip his power. Vital is super smart and very strategic and this is better for the nation long term. Vital also has the admiration of Americans if you read the Wikileak cables. jose
