Dan Gertler – the man at the centre of DR Congo corruption allegations

In DR Congo, Mr Gertler acted as a middleman between the country and multinational companies and also managed companies on behalf of Mr Kabila, according to the US sanctions announcement. Now that President Félix Tshisekedi, in power since 2019, is gradually wresting Mr Kabila’s control over DR Congo’s political establishment, the US wants Mr Gertler contained too.
