In the middle is Egambé Edo, the O.G "bailleur de fonds" (donor) and the arguably once the most powerful figure in Zaire not named Mobutu. You might recognize his name from most 80's-90's hits. Also the father of popular world artist, Kaysha, the young boy in the picture.

Seated right

The only other image that comes close in significance is the photo of James Brown and Verckys Kiamuangana

Mokolo Wa Mpombo aka "Engambe Edo" works now for Joseph Kabila, like the most ex'MPR members.

Yeah, something that still baffles me. Now Ya Edo and past MPR's members authority is miniscule. The youth don't know who they once were

In the end it became more convenient for the Kabilas to keep the old figureheads they orginally overthrew in the Presidential administration....

I think he is now the 2nd or 3rd Vice President of the Congolese Senate

I once saw a pick of him with the previous North Korean President
