Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) health minister Oly Ilunga announced his resignation after complaining about the presidency’s decision to take over control of the response to the Ebola outbreak instead of his team.

Ilunga posted his resignation on his Twitter account where he criticised ‘interference in the management of the response’ to the outbreak.

“It would be unrealistic to believe that the new vaccine (two doses administered 56 days apart) proposed by actors who have demonstrated a manifest lack of ethics by voluntarily hiding important information from the health authorities, can have a decisive impact on the control of the ongoing epidemic,” said Ilunga.

So far, the Ebola outbreak is the second deadliest outbreak in history and has claimed a lot of lives in DRC.
