If they get their 40%, they will leave many in the dust...

Rwanda Minerals Export Revenues Increase By $207M



Rwanda has registered one of the best performances in mining, in the last two years after earning more than double in exports.

Rwanda Mines, Petroleum and Gas Board says export earnings from minerals increased from $166 million (Rwf144.8 billion) in 2016 to $373 million (Rwf324.4 billion) in 2017.

Francis Gatare, Chief Executive Officer of Rwanda Mines, Petroleum and Gas Board told KT Press that the increase in mineral exports is largely attributed to a successful year of 2017 in the mining sector globally.

Last year was a good year for Mining Sector worldwide, because of price increases in all commodities,” Gatare told KT Press on Tuesday.

One of the impacts was due to increased production in response to higher prices, especially for Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten and Gold. There was also a growth of new exports, especially Gemstones, which contributed to the increased value,” he said.

Gold, Tin, Tantalum proviennent du sud-kivu
Tungsten, Tourmaline, Coltan, et autres pierres precieuses proviennent du Nord-kivu.

The central government must allow provinces to play a bigger role in securing natural ressources......since provinces understand the landscape better..


The 2 levels of government ( central and provincial) must work in a partnership of equals instead of having always the central gov thinking it's above other levels of governments..



Provinces should take the central government to constitutional court over this...

Mova Sakanyi at the head of a Congolese delegation in Kigali



Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Henri Mova Sakanyi visited Kigali on Thursday (June 7th). At the head of a strong delegation including the governor of the province of North Kivu Mr. Julien Paluku, Mova Sakanyi signed with the Rwandan Minister of Defense James Kabarebe the report on the demarcation of borders and the operationalization of the OSBP (One Stop Border Post).

Under the OSBP concept, crossing the border is only done at one border post (on one side of the border).

Therefore, a truck carrying goods from Rwanda to the DRC (vice versa) will only stop on one side of the border where immigration and other customs procedures for both countries are carried out simultaneously.


As a reminder, this ceremony takes place this Thursday, June 7, which is the African Borders Day established by the African Union Border Program (AUBP).

"I am confident that Rwanda and the DRC will accelerate the delimitation and materialization of the remaining section of the land and the lake before 2022, which is the deadline set by the African Union, for all member states of demarcation and to materialize their borders. The two countries still have a large role to play in the joint management and proper use of the buffer zone that has been established respecting the conventional 6.25 meters on each side, and this is in accordance with the Goma Protocol of 25 June 1911, signed by the former colonial powers, namely Germany and Belgium. "Said James Kabarebe, according to the Twitter account of the Rwandan Ministry of Defense.

About the AUBP

The African Union Border Program (AUBP) was established by African leaders in January 2007 at the 8th Ordinary Session of the African Union Assembly of Heads of State and Government. In June 2007, African ministers in charge of border issues adopted the Declaration on the African Union Border Program (AUBP) and its implementation modalities.

The mission of the AUBP is to respond to the persistence of the absence of delimitation and demarcation of African borders which gives rise to "indefinite areas", to facilitate and support the delimitation and demarcation of African borders and to develop initiatives between States.

Taxes or Violence? Armed Group in DRC Forces One Village to Choose



Is a semblance of security worth the taxes that villagers are compelled to give the Mai Mai Mazembe militia? Some in Miriki say yes, while many others have deserted their homes and left the region, at risk of going hungry.

MIRIKI, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO — Guava trees, cassava plants, beans and banana trees line the narrow, well-kept road that leads to Miriki, a primary village in this rural area. To get to the village, travelers must pass through Kaghumo, a small community.

The first sign of the area’s trouble is obvious in Kaghumo: About 150 of the roughly 200 homes are abandoned. People left the community because they no longer have free access to Miriki, the village where they once visited markets and conducted business.

For years now, Miriki has been controlled by an armed group that charges an entrance tax. Anyone who doesn’t have a receipt – proof of payment of 1,000 Congolese francs (about 62 cents) each month – isn’t allowed into the village. (Global Press Journal paid the tax to enter the village to interview people there.)

That’s not the only tax. The armed group, known as Mai Mai Mazembe, also claims portions of harvested crops, or charges farmers 300 Congolese francs (about 19 cents) as they head to their fields.

Potential

Historically, Congo’s coffee sector has had strong and reliable actors throughout the value chain. Unfortunately, systemic constraints, instability, crop-specific disease, and a lack of key information for buyers to navigate the market and establish direct trade linkages have slowed progress and led to a decline in what was once DRC’s second most valuable export at its peak in the 1980s. Official Congolese coffee production fell from about 130,000 metric tons in the 1980s to about 11,000 metric tons in 2016, according to one of Congo’s major exporters, CoffeeLac. However, in recent years, regulatory reforms, industry-wide coordinated efforts to promote the adoption and proliferation of best practices, and investments leading to the introduction of improved tools and equipment have dramatically shifted direction. As Congo’s coffee crops are reemerging as stronger, more reliable, and of higher quality, the value chains and actors are becoming ever more inclusive and collaborative.

North Kivu: State authorizes transfer of road maintenance to private



The rehabilitation and management of the Kasindi-Beni-Butembo road toll in the province of North Kivu will be transferred to private. Other axes of the national road network will also be in the medium term.

On June 15, 2018, the Road Board should, unless it is unexpected, make public the name of the company that will resume the repair and maintenance of the Kasindi-Beni-Butembo road and the related toll.

Compellingly, the Roads Authority intends to give this road to "a legal person with the technical, financial and managerial skills to design, finance, implement or have progressively implemented. (...) Experience in road projects in the last 10 years ".

The government explains, indeed, the modernization of the national roads RN 2 and 4, section, Beni-Kasindi-Butembo, along 134 km, by its will of African integration. Kasindi-Beni-Butembo is indeed "a regional integration road through which the DRC's import-export goods transit through the Kasindi border post and the seaport of Mombassa, Kenya via Uganda", reads -in the tender of the Office of the roads.

"Given its importance, the government plans to carry out this project by the concession of this road section to a legal person with the technical, financial and managerial skills to design, finance, implement or have the work progressively finance and then operate the book to ensure the recovery of funds invested, "continues the document that bears the finger of the DG of the Office of Roads, Herman Mutima.

"The Government has instructed the Office des Routes to invite interested legal entities to submit their applications and to indicate the financial, logistical and human resources and the necessary time that they intend to implement to execute this project", note -t it.

The project will consist in advance, specifies one to the Office of the Roads, in feasibility studies technico-economic, environmental and of preliminary detailed design of the work and the progressive asphalting of this road section with a view to its modernization and its exploitation until full recovery of the funds invested by the concessionaire plus interest to be agreed. The project involves strategic and ethno-political issues so delicate that the lessee must obligatorily, explains a local elected representative, to collaborate with the security forces and the communities (Nande, Hutu, etc.) of the region.

The Beni-Butembo-Kasindi section is, in practice, one of the most dangerous roads in the world because of the activism of the armed groups. At the end of April 2018, the political and military authorities of North Kivu province agreed to limit the time of traffic on the Beni-Kasindi road following repeated attacks by rebels of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), which target economic operators in particular. .

Traffic is only allowed between 5:30 and 18:00 local, made clear, in a joint statement dated April 24, 2018, the spokesman of Operation Sokola I, Captain Mak Hazukay and the Mayor of Beni City, Nyonyi Bwanakawa.

It is worth remembering that despite the technical and managerial support of the Chinese from China Railways Engineering Company, CREC 7 and SOPECO (a toll company that operates in particular on the RN1 Kinshasa-Matadi), the rehabilitation of the Kasindi-Beni road -Butembo tramples since 2015.

It was in April 2018 that the road rehabilitation works were launched drums beating by the mayor of the city at the roundabout on June 30 in front of local forces and elected officials from the province from Kinshasa. Alas, the work has been cut short.

Nord-Kivu: l’Etat autorise la cession de l'entretien routier aux privés

La réfection et la gestion du péage de la route Kasindi-Beni-Butembo dans la province du Nord-Kivu sera cédée à des privés. D’autres axes du réseau routier national le seront également à moyen terme.

Le 15 juin 2018, l’Office des routes devrait, sauf imprévu, rendre public le nom de l’entreprise qui reprendra la réfection et l’entretien de la route Kasindi-Beni-Butembo ainsi que le péage y afférent.

Towards improving trade cooperation between Tanzania and Maniema Province

Kindu, 08 July 2018 (ACP) .- The improvement of trade cooperation between Tanzania and the DRC in general and between Tanzania and the province in particular will be palpable in the next few, said the Tanzanian ambassador to the DRC, Aloli Ignasi Mela, during a meeting Friday with the ACP, after a work mission to Salamabila, mining town of Kabambare territory located about 385 km from Kindu, in the province of Maniema.

According to the Tanzanian diplomat, his country is determined to put an end to the difficulties experienced by Congolese economic operators who shuttled between the two countries. It is in this context that he announced the option taken by Tanzania to grant some benefits to Congolese economic operators including exemptions ranging from 14 to 30 days to Congolese economic operators to store their goods at Dar ports. -es-Salam and Kigoma.

It is also planned to set up a commercial space in Kigoma near Kalemie to be used by economic operators for the sale and purchase of goods. The ambassador, on the other hand, recommended to the provincial government of Maniema to rehabilitate the Salamabila-Kindu road section in order to facilitate the fluidity of commercial exchanges between the two countries through this road which opens the province of Maniema to the provinces of Tanganyika and South Kivu.
