PROMINENT Congolese opposition politician Joseph Olenghankoy has advised Ugandans to vote wisely and avoid bad leadership, which he said led to the collapse of the DRC.
â€œBecause of bad leadership, the military, economy and the social structures of Congo collapsed. I hope Ugandans will remember to vote wisely in their general elections,â€ the national president of FONUS said.
Olenghankoy, who was the minister of transport in Congoâ€™s transitional government, was last year sacked by president Joseph Kabila.
He praised President Yoweri Museveni for being a pan-Africanist, saying he was following in the footsteps of Patrice Lumumba and Kwame Nkrumah.
â€œI know there are problems between Uganda and the DRC but what Museveni has done cannot be taken away. Museveniâ€™s pan-Africanist views are a great asset for the region,â€ he said.
He said he hoped to develop Africa through developing the DRC.
