“Given his military experience, as head of state and leader of men, I ask President Felix Tshisekedi to appoint Joseph Kabila as head of military operations in the east of the country to restore the authority of the state,” he tweeted.
He added:”I believe that Joseph Kabila knows the region well and his military authority is not discussed. In addition, he mastered the local region, language and culture of the Eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo.”
