The special adviser to the President of the Republic in charge of strategic issues, Vidiye Tshimanga Tshipanda, resigned from his functions on Friday, in a correspondence addressed to the President of the Republic, Felix Antoine Tshisekedi, following the « scandal caused by the oriented article of the OCCRP (Organized crime and corruption reporting project) of September 15th, 2022″.
According to him, this resignation will shed light on the sponsors of this rough editing. The former adviser to the Head of State maintains that he has a recording contradicting the charges against him.
In his correspondence, Vidiye Tshimanga also reassures the President of the Republic that he has never ceased to defend his vision regarding the fight against corruption as well as anti-values.
« The wound being unfortunately too open at this stage, the present resignation seems to me the only decision of dignity to take », he said, before recalling that he had to serve the country and the Congolese people, until to this day, alongside the Head of State with conviction, dedication and loyalty.
