DRC-Fizi: Seizure of large parcels of gold in the process of illegal export to Tanzania



The Congolese army seized last Thursday a large amount of gold in way at the port of Kalundu in Uvira while it was being illegally exported to Tanzania via Lake Tanganyika. The ore from Ubwari Island in the Fizi Territory was packed in 147 100 kg bags.

The parcels embedded in the boat MV Safina ya Nuhu. The cargo was discovered by the military based in Dine Mizimu in the territory of Fizi.

"This act is part of the fight against the illegal exploitation of minerals in the DRC, and I ask all shipowners to avoid fraud on Lake Tanganyika because the army will never allow anyone to play unlawfully with the wealth of the Congolese, "said Captain Justin Liwanga, commander of 2212th Congolese marine forces based in Uvira.

The packages were opened Monday by local authorities, who claim that the minerals were buried in other substances to escape the vigilance of state services

On an Island in the DRC’s Lake Kivu, Coffee Begins to Bear Economic Fruit

Among the many recent private and public efforts to support the Democratic Republic of Congo coffee sector, one is quite literally on an island.

In the Lake Kivu area provinces where arabica and robusta are commercially grown, production once soared in the 1980s prior to a civil war in 1993, from which civil conflict and political turmoil persisted for decades. In 1989, the DRC produced an estimated 238 million pounds of coffee, according to estimates from the U.S. International Trade Commission. By comparison, in the 2017/18 crop year, the DRC produced 44.8 million pounds, according to International Coffee Association statistics.

Much of the sector-level focus on DRC coffees in this decade has been on the production of high-quality arabica for premium export markets. Among those parties working to make coffee a sustainable cash crop for DRC coffee farmers is Ensemble Pour La Différence, a social enterprise that’s registered as a cooperative in South Kivu, and as a charity in the UK.

The group recently released some illuminating survey results from its interviews with coffee farmers on the Lake Kivu island of Idjwi, where a remarkable coffee-focused agricultural transformation has been occurring. Because of its remote location, the island has been something of a safe haven from the decades-long Congo conflict, yet that very geographic isolation has also resulted in few trading opportunities, with farmers often selling their crop to buyers in Rwanda by the rickety boatload at much lower prices than they might fetch on the open market, according to Ensemble.

So in 2013, Ensemble partnered with the island’s CPNCK cooperative, providing a loan that in turn led to the first full-container shipment of green coffee off the island. The group has since been facilitating container shipments annually, seeing increases in both production and quality scores. Ensemble now says some CPNCK coffees are being purchased by Starbucks.

Despite the improved market access and demand for the specialty-level coffees, Ensemble’s own interviews with farmers suggested more work is needed before arabica production on the island can be considered a standalone path to prosperity. For example, the average volume that farmers reported selling to CPNCK in 2017 was 480 kilos. However, 58 percent of those farmers estimated that they would need to sell at least 60 kilos to CPNCK to meet the needs of their children.

With these numbers in mind, Ensemble is currently trying to attract support to increase CPNCK shipments from four containers in the most recent crop year to 15 containers.

We recently caught up with Ensemble Pour La Différence Co-Founder Mike Beeston to talk more about the CPNCK partnership, touching on issues of empowerment, scaleability and economic sustainability.

150 missing after shipwreck in eastern Congo

KINSHASA (Reuters) - About 150 people are missing after a boat sunk on a lake in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, President Felix Tshisekedi said on Tuesday.

I am very saddened by the shipwreck of a pirogue on (Monday) April 15 on Lake Kivu. The provisional toll is 150 people missing,” Tshisekedi said on his office’s Twitter account.

Delphin Mbirimbi, a local activist in South Kivu province, told Reuters that the boat, which had departed from neighbouring North Kivu province, wrecked on the lake near Kalehe territory.

He said three bodies had been recovered, 33 people had been rescued and another 150 passengers were missing.

Tshisekedi said he was following the situation closely “in order to identify and sanction those responsible”.

Deadly boat accidents are common in Congo, a vast, forested country which has few roads outside of major towns and where boats are frequently loaded well beyond their capacity.

Tea factory struggles on amid clashes in east DR Congo

The view at 2,000 metres (6,500 feet) is idyllic, but it comes with an invisible, mortal threat.

"Everything around the factory is controlled by armed groups," warns Joseph Kitsa.

He watches over a tea processing plant which, with venerable equipment and heroic commitment, survives in the highlands of one of Africa's most troubled locations -- war-scarred eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

To get to this outpost near Mweso, in Masisi territory, the trek starts in Goma, the capital of North Kivu province, a bumpy four-hour drive away.

A dirt track winds upwards into a paradisal landscape -- the "Switzerland of Africa", famed for its milk, cheese and lush alpine vistas. The verdant pastures and cattle are tended by peasant farmers from the Masisi and Rutshuru territories.

Orderly rows of tea shrubs, looking rather like a vineyard, appear between houses for employees and a large factory, its roof partly wrecked.

In its halcyon days, before 1994, the JTN plantation -- French acronym for the "Tea Gardens of Ngeri" -- had 1,200 paid workers and lodged them in hundreds of homes on site.

The workforce cared for 450 hectares (1,100 acres) of shrubs and a huge processing plant on behalf of a subsidiary of Unilever in the then Zaire, according to Kitsa, JTN's deputy manager.

The factory is today owned by four shareholders who rarely visit because of the insecurity.

- '10 percent of capacity' -

The plant is ageing, needing repairs and investment, yet its machines still handle tea, covering all of the processing steps -- withering, rolling, oxidation, drying, sorting and packing.

But times got tough in the past quarter-century, and remain so today.

"The factory is now operating at 10 percent of capacity," Kitsa told AFP.

"We produce 10 to 12 tonnes a month, with 450 employees."

The tea heads towards Goma, serving the regional market.

Lamenting a chronic lack of funds, Kitsa pointed to a broken-down mechanical treadmill and antique processing machinery.

Park in North Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo

The rural electrification project in Lubero territory, and in particular the deployment of the electricity distribution network, is part of the Virunga Alliance, this program of the Virunga National Park (PNVi) which aims to ensure the conservation Park, to reduce the poverty of the population living in its surroundings and to improve the security situation in the region. 4 million people live around the Park, most often in a situation of extreme poverty. This situation leads to pressure on the Park's environmental integrity, which is becoming subject to exploitation by armed groups and a section of the population that has no choice but to cultivate on its territory.

This project aims to provide access to good quality non-polluting electricity to the population of the Lubero territory, connect electricity to the main services to the population (hospitals, schools, public lighting) and encourage conservation. Natural resources of PNVi.

The provision of electricity access to households and businesses is a factor of local economic development that contributes to the well-being of the inhabitants and to a better conservation of the Park. The main activities are grouped under a series of outputs:

This project is structured around three main results, namely:

accessibility to the electricity distribution network backed by the Luviro hydroelectric power station by the population, the companies (in particular of agricultural transformation), and the services to the population,
the installation of public lighting in conurbations crossed by power lines, and
public awareness of the importance of iNVP conservation.
To achieve these results, the project provides, among other activities

  • the construction of the 40km medium voltage network and 120 km low voltage,
  • the connection of consumers (10,000 households, 1000 SMEs and social services and 10 large companies),
  • the installation and connection of 900 luminaires in the localities traversed by the network,
  • rotating recruitment of day laborers,
  • awareness events, and
  • free supply of electric stoves.

North Kivu: ACOGENOKI and CAB benefit from REIT funding for milk processing

Kinshasa, May 6, 2019 (ACP) .- Association of the cooperatives of the groups of breeders of North-Kivu (ACOGENOKI) and the Committee of self-promotion at the base (CAB), two ASBL specialized in the transformation of milk of the cattle last weekend, each receiving funding from the Industry Promotion Fund (FPI), for the acquisition and implementation of a modular milk processing unit in North Kivu, learned ACP Monday of this public institution.

The REIT specifies that these two financings are part of two non-refundable grant agreements between this public institution and these two Asbl, for respective amounts of 695,266 (six hundred and ninety-five thousand, two hundred and sixty-six ) USD and 280,454 (two hundred and eighty thousand, four hundred and fifty-four) US dollars, to value dairy and livestock production in the provinces of North and South Kivu.

For CAB, this funding is intended to support cattle breeding by rehabilitating existing infrastructure and financing the turnover needs of this facility located in Mulume Munene, in the province of South Kivu.

The CEO of Patrice Kitebi FPI has invited the representatives of these two Asbl to make good use of this funding from taxpayers, adding that these grants are part of the Emergency Program of 100 days of the President of the Republic, Felix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo.

For his part, ACOGENOKI Board Chair Emmanuel Kamanzi Runingi said that the FPI grant is restarting the activities of his association by adding value to its products. "This sum, will allow the establishment of infrastructure to contribute to production, including milk, cheese, butter, and other products derived from cattle breeding.

With this funding from the REIT, the Congolese government intends to contribute to the creation of wealth in the two provinces in order to achieve one of the government's objectives of diversifying the Congolese economy.

This project, which brought together several pastoralists' cooperatives in North Kivu, had benefited over time from the support of Canadian cooperation. But these efforts were wiped out by the armed conflicts that have occurred in this part of the country, one recalls.

Nord-Kivu : L’ACOGENOKI et la CAB bénéficient d’un financement du FPI pour la transformation de lait

Kinshasa, 06 mai 2019 (ACP).- L’Association des coopératives des groupes d’éleveurs du Nord-Kivu (ACOGENOKI) et le Comité d’autopromotion à la base (CAB), deux ASBL spécialisées dans la transformation de lait des bovins, ont bénéficié le weekend dernier, chacune un financement du Fonds de promotion de l’industrie (FPI), pour l’acquisition et l’implantation d’une unité modulaire de transformation de lait dans le Nord-Kivu, a appris l’ACP lundi de cet établissement public.

Le FPI précise que ces deux financements s’inscrivent dans le cadre de deux conventions de subvention non remboursable entre cet établissement public et ces deux Asbl, pour des montants respectifs de 695.266(six cent quatre-vingt-quinze mille, deux cent soixante-six) USD et 280.454 (deux cent quatre-vingt mille, quatre cent cinquante-quatre) dollars américains, en vue de valoriser la production laitière et l’élevage dans les provinces du Nord et Sud-Kivu.

Nord-Kivu : la SOCODEE pour un arrangement à l’amiable du différend avec Virunga Sarl

16 MAI 2019 BY ACP CONGO
IN ECONOMIE

Goma, 16 mai 2019 (ACP).- La société congolaise de distribution d’eau et d’électricité, SOCODEE, est disposée pour une solution à l’amiable pour mettre un terme au différend avec Virunga Sarl au sujet du tracé de la ligne de desserte de la ville de Goma en courant électrique à partir de le centrale de Matebe-Rutshuru.

M. Theogene Rukundo, Chef de projet, qui l’a déclaré au cours d’un point de presse tenu mercredi 15 mai à Goma, a souligné que l’autorité de régulation de l’électricité a déjà été saisie pour une solution à l’amiable de cette incompréhension des faits pénaux enregistrés sur terrain lors de dernières altercations entre les ouvriers commis aux deux chantiers. « Ce différend serait lié à la superposition des périmètres » entre les deux firmes respectives, alors que la SOCODEE dispose d’un contrat de concession de desserte de Goma en courant électrique partant de Matebe., « La main tendue de Virunga pour un dialogue est la bienvenue car nous sommes des partenaires », a apaisé Théogène Rukundo qui fait état de la saisine, par sa firme, du ministère en charge de l’Energie.

Pour ce cadre, la suspension des travaux sur le chantier doit avoir été motivée par le souci de l’autorité de préserver la paix entre les ouvriers et ainsi prévenir l’environnement d’éventuels dégâts collatéraux.

Lutte contre la misère des gagne-petit

« Les patrons de la SOCODEE ont fait de la lutte contre la misère des gagne-petit leur cheval de bataille, raison de leur investissement dépassant les cinq millions de dollars américains », a de son côté garanti le chargé de l’Administration Guy Habamungu pour qui l’arrivée imminente de la délégation de Kinshasa va certainement permettre aux deux parties d’émettre sur une même longueur d’ondes. Nonobstant la disponibilité pour une solution négociée pour des raisons humanitaires, cette société soutien avoir été la première à avoir décroché du Gouvernement de la RDC, le contrat de concession pour la distribution du courant électrique dans le territoire de Nyiragongo et sur toute l’étendue de la ville de Goma.

Un conflit ouvert a apposé les ouvriers de Virunga Sarl à ceux de la Socodee au motif que les deux firmes ont emprunté un même périmètre pour le tracé de la ligne de transport du courant de Matebe au centre-ville de Goma. Certaines indiscrétions disent que l’incompréhension inutile serait entre les seuls ouvriers déployés sur terrain, les dirigeants étant pour une solution pacifique.

Seule l’Autorité de régulation de l’électricité est attendue à Goma pour permettre aux deux parties de fumer le calumet de la paix surtout que des impacts négatifs notamment la suspension des contrats de prestations causent non seulement préjudice aux travailleurs de deux cotés mais aussi aux clients et abonnés qui voyaient déjà le courant électrique à leurs portes respectives dans une contrée où l’énergie
constitue une panacée à nombreuses difficultés vitales. ACP/FNG/Cfm/JLL

Eastern Congo has the world’s largest quinine plantations

A region known for misery also saves lives


The kivu provinces in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo have a tragic reputation. Armed militias rape and plunder. Ebola, a virus, has infected more than 2,000 people.

But the region has also saved millions of lives. North and South Kivu are home to the largest cinchona forests in the world. The bark of these trees, which were introduced by the Belgians, contains quinine, a drug that cures malaria. (It also tastes pleasantly bitter when dissolved in fizzy water and served with gin and a slice of lime.)


Near the edge of a plantation is one of just five quinine-extracting factories in the world. The operation, which has been running since 1961, produces about 100 tonnes of processed quinine a year, or about 30% of global demand. “First we address the country’s needs, then we export the rest,” says Etienne Erny, the managing director of Pharmakina, the firm that owns the factory.

Just under half the quinine is sent abroad. A third of this is turned into tonic water and the rest into medicine. It is a tragic twist of fate, therefore, that despite the abundance of quinine in Congo, it still has the second-highest rate of malaria deaths in the world. In 2017 some 435,000 people died from the disease. Many cannot afford to pay the $2 for a course of 21 pills or do not diagnose the malady in time.

While conditions in the Kivus (most notably altitude and humidity) are ideal for cultivating trees, the region’s never-ending skirmishes are not. Some of Pharmakina’s forests stretch into an area which is overrun with dozens of rebel groups that call themselves “Mai-Mai” and claim to have magical powers in battle. They regularly kidnap and kill. Now and then they send letters to Pharmakina demanding cash and threatening to abduct its workers. “You don’t pay, but you have to talk to them,” says Michael Gebbers, another director. Discussions take time and frightened employees do not dare turn up at the plantations. Moreover, during Congo’s two bloody wars, which ran for a total of six years between 1996 and 2003, great swathes of the forest were unreachable and the company’s output dwindled.

The problems of running a business in Congo extend beyond insecurity. Because there is no reliable supply of electricity, the factory is often powered by expensive generators. The chemicals used to process quinine are costly and come by lorry from Tanzania.

As if this weren’t enough, the firm also has to deal with growing competition. Indian traders have begun buying cinchona bark and shipping it to Delhi, where the cost of processing is lower. Demand has also fallen since the discovery of synthetic quinine and artemisinin, another plant-based anti-malaria drug. Still, people hoping to give Congo’s economy a tonic can do their bit to drive up demand each time they raise a glass.

DRC: US ​​$ 687,153 from FPI to IITA to support young aquaculturists in South Kivu

The Industrial Promotion Fund (FPI) awarded a grant of US $ 687,153 to the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA). The signing of the contract between the two parties took place on July 5, 2019 in Bukavu. This marks another step towards the materialization of the cage fish aquaculture project on Lake Kivu.

Indeed, this subsidy contract supports young tilapia cage aquaculture farmers in the province of South Kivu. The project, which is among the 13 funded by the FPI, is in line with President Felix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo’s 100-day emergency program.

It will include the acquisition of breeding cages, the fish feed manufacturing unit, a cold room, a van, small equipment and production equipment and working capital.

The FPI represented by its director in charge of the projects, André Ilali Lukoji on the one hand, and the IITA represented by its general manager Emanuel Nteranya Sanginga on the other hand have affixed their respective signatures on the grant agreement.

At this meeting, the REIT presented a $ 109,000 bank security as a down payment of $ 687,153 to mark the effective start of this interinstitutional collaboration aimed at achieving a visible impact project in the short term. and fast in youth entrepreneurship.

It should also be noted that this interinstitutional partnership also involves various institutions, in particular the Higher Institute for Rural Development (ISDR-Bukavu), the Higher Pedagogical Institute of Bukavu (ISP-BUKAVU) and the National Aquaculture Service (SENAQUA).

This collaboration aims at sustaining this intervention of the FPI in the supervision, support and employment of young people. This is just a pilot project.

The objective of the REIT is to contribute to the revitalization of the fish sector through the extension of this aquaculture technique to the national level, in order to allow more Congolese to obtain fresh local fish at affordable prices and the creation of youth employment.
