Kabila’s brother impeached as DR Congo governor

The officials of Tanganyika province in the Democratic Republic of Congo have impeached Governor Zoe Kabila – the younger brother of former President Joseph Kabila.

The impeachment motion was supported by officials allied to President Felix Tshisekedi as the rift between him and Kabila widens.

Officials in Kabila’s camp boycotted the session, said the East African newspaper.

Kabila was the only one among 26 governors who did not sign President Tshisekedi’s Act of the Sacred Union membership that was formed to ensure progressive governance.

President Tshisekedi ended his coalition with Kabila’s party – which has a majority in parliament – following years of increasing tension.
