Below, the complete clarification of the facts on this suspension according to the Communication Unit of the Ministry of ESU!

DOSSIER OF THE SUSPENSION OF THE SECRETARY-GENERAL TO THE ESU

Here is the sequence of events:

 On March 8, 2019, the Minister of Higher and University Education proceeded to the handing over and resumption with his colleague, Mr. Steve Mbikayi who opted for his elective mandate in the National Assembly and this, in execution of the letter No. CAB / PM / CJDH / PPM / 2019/0275 of 5 March 2019 by His Excellency the Prime Minister, Head of Government (Annex 1);

Long before, the outgoing Minister of Higher Education and University had signed the Ministerial Order No. 014/2019 of January 22, 2019 appointing an Academic Secretary at the University of Kinshasa to replace the one in office, elected Deputy National who also joined the hemicycle of the People’s Palace.

In view of the official communique of the Presidency of the Republic of 25 January 2019 suspending any movement of personnel within the administrations, the Secretary General for Higher Education University was not able to notify the concerned said decree.

First and foremost, it should be emphasised that the official communique of 25 January 2019 was of paramount importance, especially in its movement of personnel, to prevent abuses that could have been committed in this sector and not to block the harmonious functioning of the administrations and different services of the State.

The Minister of Higher Education and University, by his letter n ° 0171 / MINESU / CAB.MIN / MIL / WPIU / 2019 of March 20, 2019, requested the authorisation of notification of this decree to the Director of Cabinet of His Excellency Mr. President of the Republic, Head of State, precisely to comply with the spirit and the letter of the said communique, letter remained unresolved to this day.
 In the meantime, relaying the terms of the official communique of the Presidency of the Republic, Prime Minister, by his letter CAB / PM / CJDHC / PPM / 2019/0389 of 22 March 2019, instruct all Ministers among others of no longer take the acts of disposition without prior authorisation on his part to judge the urgency and necessity;

Meanwhile, the Universities Board and the UNIKIN Management Committee which only functions with its Rector and Budget Administrator, since his Administrative Secretary General has been in medical care for some time, insist for the nominated academic secretary to be notified to ensure a smooth functioning of the UNIKIN and to prepare the student coordination elections for which the Rector is under permanent threats from the students.

To do this and in the best interest of the student community, in response to the letter of the Minister ai of ESU No. 0184 / MINESU / CAB.MIN / MIL / SG / 2019 of March 27, 2019, Mr. Prime Minister Minister, by his letter n ° CAB / PM / CJDHC / PPM / 2019/0417 of March 28, 2019, authorises the Minister of the ESU to instruct his Secretary General to notify the said Order to allow a harmonious functioning of Unikin;

Similarly, in response to the request of the Minister ai de l’Esu introduced by his letter n ° 0183 / MINESU / CAB.MIN / MIL / SG / 2019 of March 27, 2019, Prime Minister, by his letter n ° CAB / PM / CJDHC / PPM / 2019/0418 of 28 March 2019, authorises the notification to the Director General of ISTA / Lubumbashi of the Order withdrawing his suspension for which a report of non-suit has been drawn up, also to enable the functioning of this higher institute;
 Formally instructed for this purpose by his Minister through his letters n ° 185 and 186 / MINESU / CAB.MIN / MIL / JMB / 2019 of March 28, 2019, the Secretary General for Higher and University Education opposes a categorical refusal by his letter n ° MINESU / SG / 160/01/0541/2019 of March 30, 2019 under the pretext of sticking to the spirit and the letter of the official communique of January 25, 2019;

After the reaction of his superior by his letter n ° 199 / MINESU / CAB.MIN / MIL / JMB / 2019 of 03 April 2019, Madam Secretary General, by his letter n ° MINESU / SG / 160/01/0598 / 2019 of 05 April 2019 unveils its instigators without the cities by seeking the intervention of his Minister against the instructions of His Excellency the Prime Minister and the instructions repeatedly reminded him by the President of the Republic she said;
 After investigation and over time, it is indeed Mr. Jean TEZO-KIA-NSI, Senior Adviser to the Head of State in charge of Education and some of his Assistants as well as Mr. Jean Claude MBOMBO, A / P of the ANR which operates by intimidation to the members of the Management Committee of Unikin and others without its hierarchy and the ANR being informed;

The refusal of the Secretary General to comply with the orders of her superior is an insubordination because if there is a violation of the official communique of 25 January 2019, it would be in the name of the person who authorised the taking of these Orders and not in the name of the person who has merely notified;

Also, this ambiguous attitude of a nature to oppose the institutions of the Republic is as much reprehensible for the Secretary General as for the instigators who operate without any respect of the administrative order in this matter.

For all these reasons above and in the face of the deliberate blocking by the Secretary General, blockage of such a nature as not to favor the regular functioning of the Minister, the Prime Minister, by his letter CAB / PM / CJDHC / PPM / 2019 / 0577 of April 19, 2019, in response to that no. 212 / MINESU / CAB.MIN / MIL / PMK / JMB / 2019 of April 08, 2019, of the Minister of the ESU, authorised the taking of the Order suspending from the Secretary General to the ESU while asking for the respect of the legal framework which organises the disciplinary regime applicable to civil servants of the State;

However, by his letter n ° 0797/04/2019 of April 27, 2019, received on May 03, 2019, from the Head of the Cabinet of His Excellency the President of the Republic, the Head of State, informed by the letter n ° MINESU / SG / 160/01/878/2019 of April 24, 2019 of the Secretary General ai to the Higher Education and University asks the Minister of the ESU ai to bring back said Decree because not having required its authorisation in accordance with the spirit and letter of the official communique of 25 January 2019.

In view of the information given above for this purpose, the decision of the Supreme Authority was thus taken in this sense because all the constituent elements of the file, resulting in the suspension of the Secretary General ai, have not not available to him.
