Saturday October 15, the general manager of Congo Airways, Good Pascal Kasongo, was expected in Cape Town, at the annual general meeting of the Association of Air Carriers of Southern Africa (AASA), of which he was a confirmed speaker. But he didn’t present. He was replaced at short notice by his commercial director, Norbert Sengamali Lukukamounted in his place on the podium – their names have since disappeared from the official program of the event.
And for good reason: the general manager of Congo Airways, on the run, was then untraceable – he has since been arrested, according to our information. The day before, its financial director, Emile Gilbert Cake, had also been arrested. The procedure suddenly accelerated, while the Congolese company, whose the management is regularly criticized by the Minister of Transport, Cherub Okendehas for weeks been under investigation by the General Inspectorate of Finance (IGF), headed by Jules Alingete Key.

It must be said that the suspicions of mismanagement within the campaign were supported at the end of September by the hearings of Pascal Kasongo Mwema and Emile Gilbert Kakese, whose Young Africa was able to consult the minutes exclusively.
