“I do not carry on my hands the blood of M’zee Laurent-Désiré Kabila”, affirmed the Eddy Kapend. During a press conference held this Tuesday, May 17 in Kinshasa, he said he was the unwavering and loyal son of the former President of the Republic between 1997 and 20001.

On May 17, the DRC commemorates the 25th anniversary of the entry of troops from the Alliance of Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Congo (AFDL). A day dedicated to the Armed Forces of the DRC.

Opportunity for the former aide-de-camp of Laurent-Desiré Kabila to explain the oath of the late President of the Republic for whom May 17 remains very significant:

“On the occasion of the commemoration of the date of 17 May, which has great meaning for me and for many of you too. My firm conviction with regard to social progress, the unity of the country and national reconciliation. Preserving the unity of the country is a sacred duty for each of us. »

Eddy Kapend, as one of the notables of the Katangese space spoke in relation to the ongoing forum in Lubumbashi on Katangese unity and reconciliation.

According to him, this forum betrays the vision and the oath of Mzee Laurent-Désiré Kabila. The former aide-de-camp of Mzee Laurent-Désiré Kabila describes this forum as “segregationist”.
