Former Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) President Joseph Kabila has earned a Grasp’s diploma as he utilises his break from energetic politics to pursue greater schooling.
The ex-Head of State obtained the certification from the College of Johannesburg in South Africa after he efficiently defended his thesis. A press release from the establishment confirmed that the previous DRC President is now a a post-graduate alumnus.
“Sure, he (Kabila) has completed his grasp’s diploma,” stated Prof Tshilidzi Marwala, vice-chancellor of the college.
The affirmation places an finish to hypothesis within the DRC after Néhémie Mwilanya, Kabila’s former chief of employees, the previous Head of State was defending “a doctoral thesis”.
After verification, it turned out to be a Grasp’s diploma in political science on management within the DRC.
“The very fact stays that Joseph Kabila has simply efficiently accomplished a Grasp’s programme in Political Science and Worldwide Relations, attained via distance studying, over the previous 4 years, underneath the supervision of Prof Chris Landsberg”, corrected Mr Mwilanya as he walked again on his earlier announcement.
In a short video circulating on social media of Kabila in a room with dons from the College of Johannesburg, he says that his biggest achievement is efficiently unifying DRC after rising from a cycle of conflict.
When Joseph Kabila got here to energy in January 26, 2001 after his father Laurent-Désiré Kabila was assassinated, DRC was divided into three elements.
In 2003, after prolonged negotiations, the insurgent actions controlling these elements gave up the insurrection to kind political events, and Kabila made the previous insurgent leaders vice-presidents.
In 2019, Kabila left the highest job after shedding an election, marking the nation’s first peaceable handover of energy since independence in 1960 when he handed over to present President Felix Tshisekedi.
