DRC opposition figure drops activism for African Bank jobDR Congo President Felix Tshisekedi has nominated a top opposition figure for a post in the African Development Bank, thereby obliging him to drop his political activities. Freddy Matungulu of the Lamuka coalition, which had consistently staged protests against the long and iron-fisted rule of Tshisekedi's predecessor Joseph Kabila, confirmed on Friday that he had been offered the prestigious job. "It pleased the head of state to designate me to assume the mandate of the DRC," said the former economist, who has also worked at the World Bank.
