After meeting Friday, September 2nd with the President of the Republic of Congo, Denis Sassou Nguesso in Kinshasa, Tshisekedi refused again, on behalf of the Rally of Social and Political Forces for change, to take part in the political dialogue held under the auspece of the facilitator Edem Kodjo. These sessions were opened yesterday in Kinshasa.
Speaking to the press after the meeting, the National Secretary for External Relations of the UDPS, Félix Tshisekedi and President of Civic Engagement for Development, Martin Fayulu, told the press the Rally can not take part in this dialogue, having already rejected Mr. Edem Kodjo, which ithey accuses of bias.
“We have already said we will not participate in facilitated dialogue by Kodjo. It has already been rejected by Tshisekedi on 24 July. He repeated on 31 July and confirmed on August 6 at the international community. There is no intention to participate in dialogue with the city of OAU. We presented Mr. Sassou a memorandum that we have already sent to Zuma [President of the Commission of the African Union], “said Martin Fayulu, a member of the Rally led by Etienne Tshisekedi.
Vital Kamerhe, co-moderator of the opposition to the dialogue, proposed the opening of dialogue to suspend its operations for it to try to convince the G7 and the Rally to join the dialogue.
An approach that rejects political platform.
“Kamerhe is not the facilitator. We already have problems with Kodjo and must not add him in, “added Félix Tshisekedi.
“President Sassou has only listened to us. It offers us nothing. This is a president of a sister Republic who came along. He saw Kabila, he saw us and he promises to see the apostolic nuncio. It is for him to see, “added Martin Fayulu.
