Jean-Marc Kabund-a-Kabund has resigned from his position as 1st vice president of DRC’s national assembly.
The Acting President of the Union for Democracy and Social Progress (UDPS), announced his resignation via his Twitter account this Friday, January 14, 2022.
“On this day I make the decision to resign from my duties as 1st VP of the AN. Thus opens a new page of history, which will be written with the sweat of our brow, which will flow each day that we face bullying, humiliation and torture…”, wrote Jean-Marc Kabund.
This resignation comes 48 hours after the residence of Jean-Marc Kabund was stormed by elements of the Republican Guard (GR).
In a video that has gone viral on social networks, we see the Kabund guard police brutalize a GR soldier before taking his weapon. These incidents led some elements of the Republican Guard to ravage the house of Kabund-a-kabund.
In an address to the party members, Jean-Marc Kabund explained that the decisions that will follow such as that of his resignation are for “the interest of the fighters”.
“You know me very well. You know the struggle we waged. I am neither a traitor, nor a wheeler-dealer, nor someone who fights for his personal interest. We have all fought to bring the party to where it is today. The decisions that will follow, it should be known, it is for your interest. I would never betray you. Everything I would make as a decision is for your happiness,” he reassured.
