Sama Lukonde, drc's new prime minister



Barring a change, it is in principle this Monday, February 15, 2021 that the new Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of Congo will be known to all. According to sources in the presidency, the announcement of Sylvestre Ilunga Ilunkamba's successor will be discussed.

According to the same sources who confided in 7SUR7. CD, the personality who leaves favorite to replace the current head of government, at least resigned. This is Sama Lokonde.

Born on August 4, 1977 in Paris, Sama Lukonde Kyenge is an engineer by training. He graduated in 1996 in Industrial Chemistry from the Mutoshi Technical Institute, in 2000 in Computer Science/Information Technology in South Africa and from Lubumbashi University in Chemistry (Inorganic and Metallurgical Option) in 2006.

Since June 3, Sama Lukonde Kyenge has been Director General of Careers and Mines (Gécamines) alongside Albert Yuma Mulimbi, Chairman of the Board of Directors. 

A former sports minister under Joseph Kabila before resigning in 2015, the 43-year-old succeeded Jacques Kamenga Tshimuanga, who was appointed deputy director general of the National Railway Company of Congo (SNCC).

Sama Lukonde Kyenge, a member of the Political Future of Congo party, whose president Dany Banza is now one of the travelling ambassadors of Felix Tshisekedi, resigned in September 2015 as sports minister to obey the instructions of his party, excluded from the presidential majority for protesting against a possible third term of former President Kabila. He campaigned in the opposition under the leadership of Moses Katumbi in the G7 coalition.
