We observe in recent days, some “tensions” between members of the government.
This could undermine the cohesion within the Philemon Yang III team, that took office on Oct. 2, 2015.
First, there was the media outlet of Christian Penda Ekoka. On the set of a private television, the technical advisor to the Presidency of the Republic, severely criticized the country’s debt pace and management of parastatal companies and the implementation of developmental projects in the heart of the political program of the head of state.
In some ministries, the press evokes many tensions between ministers. There is also the media outing of a special advisor of the Prime Minister who criticized point by point, the open forum of Louis Paul Motaze, Minister of Economy, on the 3rd generation projects.
Then at the ministry of transport, there was a clash between the head of the ministry, and his Minister delegate who is also the president of board of directors of Camair-co.
The first said in an update to his Minister delegate that he still has the guardianship of the national airline. And his Minister delegate (president of board of directors of Camair-co), should not give interviews without prior authorization.
Parastatal companies are also hit hard by these “battles“.
In recent days, local media evoke the suspension of Camwater’s CEO by the Board of Directors. The CEO and the President of the Board of Directors are fighting for control of the company responsible for the distribution of drinking water in the main cities of the country.
At the same time, there are “clashes” hushed at the Ministry of Mines and the ministry of Secondary Education. Ministers and Secretaries of State, oppose their prerogatives.
