AU mediator in DR Congo begins consultations in readiness for dialogue

The African Union (AU) mediator in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo) Edem Kodjo has begun consultations with various stakeholders in preparation for political dialogue proposed by President Joseph Kabila.


Kodjo on Tuesday met with Corneille Nangaa, the president of the National Independent Electoral Commission (CENI), and discussed election preparedness in DR Congo.

According to CENI’s public relations officer Jean-Pierre Kalamba, Kodjo sought clarity on some issues from CENI. No further details were divulged to the public after the meeting.

A source close to the presidency told Xinhua Kodjo will hold talks with Kabila before consulting with other stakeholders in the dialogue, especially opposition leaders and civil society actors.

Kodjo, a former Togolese prime minister, was appointed by the AU Commission chairperson Nkosozana Dlamini-Zuma to mediate in DR Congo’s political dialogue.

Kodjo has already been rejected by a section of the opposition leaders who have flatly refused to subject themselves to mediation initiated by AU Commission chairperson.

Madam Zuma urged all different actors in DR Congo to participate in the political dialogue to find consensus. Enditem
