It was accidental, says Minister after impregnating deputy
The Minister of Primary, Secondary and Technical Education in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tony Mwaba Kazadi has confessed that he impregnated his Deputy Minister, Aminata Namasia, describing it as “accidental.”
The Heritage Times reported that a DRC journalist, Lungila John took to Twitter to reveal the affair between both officials that led to the deputy education minister’s pregnancy.
Local reports revealed that Kazadi and Namasia, despite being married, developed feelings for each other as they worked together in the DRC education ministry.
The duo have come under heavy criticisms from citizens of DRC, accusing them of bad conduct and immorality.
Archy Lema, a citizen of DRC and a Twitter user said, DRC is a country of shame, adding that Namasia has no education to give to any young lady in the country.
Another citizen of DRC said if politicians in the country, especially Kazadi and Namasia wanted to be referred to as “excellencies” or “honourables”, their conduct should have been more excellent and honourable, especially since they are very popular and wealthy, unlike other Congolese people.
Namasia was appointed the National Deputy Minister of Primary, Secondary and Technical Education in the Democratic Republic Of Congo under Jean-Michel Sama Lukonde’s cabinet on April 12, 2021.
Meanwhile, Aminata has opted not to address the scandal when the story hit social media space a few days ago but instead demanded that her privacy be respected.
Aminata posted on twitter, “beyond my official and public duties, I have a life that must be respected by all. A right guaranteed to all Congolese by our Constitution. Tarnishing my image should not be a tolerated habit.
“Indeed, it could harm not only my commitments, but also the image of my married male colleagues and their homes.
“On the eve of the electoral contests scheduled for December of this year, political detractors can attack my opinions and political actions rather than opting for practices tending to smear my person.”
