The Democratic Republic of Congo's President Félix Tshisekedi has appointed a new chief of staff to replace Vital Kamerhe who is in jail.
Guylain Nyembo's appointment was made public on Monday evening on national television RTNC.
A graduate in economics, Mr Nyembo was the deputy chief of staff in charge of economics and finance.
With this appointment, Prof Kolongele Eberande, who was the acting chief of staff, goes back to being his deputy chief of staff in charge of legal and administrative matters.
This appointment is the first step in the restructuring of President Tshisekedi's cabinet.
