DRC: the General Inspectorate of Finance called to extend its control mission to the teachers’ mutual health insurance

During a press conference held Monday, February 26 in Kinshasa, the Inter-union of Primary, Secondary and Technical Education (EPST) called on the General Inspectorate of Finance (IGF) to broaden its control mission to include other services of this ministry, in particular the Teachers’ Health Mutual.

The rapporteur of this union structure, Jose Gongbaka, deplored the poor quality of care at the level of affiliated health structures; despite the monthly funds collected within the framework of the mutual health insurance, while an envelope of approximately 2 billion Congolese francs (727,270 USD) is allocated each month to the mutual health insurance:

“The EPST union bench believes that this control must be extended to the level of the health mutual, which receives a monthly envelope of more than 2 billion Congolese francs, for honorable coverage of teachers’ health care ; while teachers recurrently complain about the poor quality of care for themselves and for their family members.”

José Gongbaka invites financial inspectors to launch an investigation into the misappropriation of more than 22 billion Congolese francs (8 million USD) in teachers’ salaries, particularly those in the interior of the country.

The General Inspectorate of Finance is currently carrying out a control mission at the national directorate for controlling teacher pay.
