From being a single mom (she has a daughter with Kabila who is now 4 and a half), Maman Presidente has turned into a formidable campaigner. Here are a few pictures of this charming first lady--included are moments of the low key customary union and the religious marriage ceremony in June 2006 to the excitement of the campaign trail. She is far more charismatic than her husband, who is a calm and flegmatic man. On an anecdotal note: 1)at her marriage all the political adversaries were present (including vice president Ruberwa), with the exception of Jean-Pierre Bemba who claimed he had to tour Kivu at that moment! 2)I just read on Digitalcongo that Bemba and all the MLC cadres have sent all their spouses and families to Europe: are they cooking up something for November 19? and do they think Europe would be a safe haven for them when they start another bloody enterprise in the Congo? 3)I'm told by people in Kinshasa that they have nicknamed Olive Kabila "Maman Possible" for her energy.
