During an intervention at the perch of the National Assembly, the president of the ecological party AECO-Les Verts, Didace Pembe denounced the substantial increase in the standard of living of the institutions in the budget bill for the 2022 fiscal year.
For Didace Pembe, the finance bill tabled by the government in parliament is far from having a social character in many respects. The leader of the Congolese Greens criticized the substantial increase in the standard of living of institutions at a time when the Congolese are demanding a drop in this standard of living.


“As I looked through the different lines of credit, I noticed the existence of several agencies and services whose usefulness in the field leaves me perplexed. The budgetary allocations of the Presidency of the Republic increased by 37.2% in 2022 compared to the 2021 budget. They amount to the equivalent in dollars, from $ 159,800,000 to $ 254,700,000, an increase of $ 94,900,000 !!! I would like to know for which objectives? ”

The president of the environmental party AECO-Les Verts declared loud and clear that the government has no sense of priorities for its people who are languishing in misery. The average monthly income per capita in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is $ 44, or $ 530 per capita per year. He suggested that this injustice be rectified in the work of the Commission.

I would like to know why, on tax revenue, taxes on salaries are poorly mobilized, that is to say 27.9%. Where are we with the collection of the IPR of local employees with Embassies and International Organizations. On non-tax revenues, why participation revenues represent only 1.9% of revenues when the country has a lot of shares, particularly in mining companies? Where do these funds go? ” Pembe asks.

The largest country in sub-Saharan Africa, with an area equivalent to that of Western Europe, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is endowed with exceptional natural resources. In addition to its mineral wealth (cobalt and copper in particular), the country has great hydroelectric potential, vast arable land, tremendous biodiversity and is home to the second largest tropical forest in the world.

However, poverty remains widespread in the DRC: the country ranks third in the world for the number of poor people and the situation has worsened further following the COVID-19 pandemic.
