Government Quits Talks, Opts to Rule With Rebels

April 23, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Congolese officials failed to turn up for continued talks in South Africa aimed at ending the country's civil war, instead returning home to set up a power-sharing government.

In the deal struck outside the formal talks, President Joseph Kabila would keep his position; Movement for the Liberation of Congo chief Jean-Pierre Bemba would become prime minister; and the leader of the larger Rwandan-backed Congolese Rally for Democracy would be offered the presidency of Parliament.
