Historic Appointment: Congo’s First Female Prime Minister Vows Peace and Development in Conflict-Stricken East

President Felix Tshisekedi of the Democratic Republic of Congo has appointed Judith Suminwa Tuluka as the country’s first female prime minister, marking a significant step towards gender equality in the country’s politics.

Tuluka, a former planning minister, will take over at a critical juncture in the country’s eastern region, which has been plagued by violence and displacement of millions of civilians. In her inaugural speech, Tuluka pledged to prioritize peace and development efforts, particularly in the conflict-ridden eastern provinces.

Despite the challenges ahead, Tuluka’s appointment represents a breakthrough in Congolese politics and offers hope for greater inclusivity and representation in governance.

The situation in eastern Congo remains dire, with numerous armed groups vying for control and a cycle of violence and instability. The United States has called for restraint from both Congo and Rwanda, urging diplomatic dialogue to prevent further escalation of tensions. As Prime Minister Tuluka takes over, she faces the daunting task of steering the nation towards stability and prosperity.
