On 21 June, Naharnet reported that Vital Kamerhe, 61, who served as the president’s chief of staff, was convicted of diverting more than $50 million of public funds.  Kamerhe’s co-accused, Lebanese businessman Samih Jammal, 79, was also convicted.  Much of the money was earmarked for building 1,500 social housing units under a programme announced by Tshisekedi after his inauguration in January 2019.
