Clément Mouamba (born 1943/44)[1] is a Congolese politician who has been Prime Minister of Congo-Brazzaville since 2016. Previously he served as Minister of Finance from 1992 to 1993.

Political career

Under President Pascal Lissouba, Mouamba was Minister of Finance from September 1992 to June 1993.[2] Mouamba was a leading member of the Pan-African Union for Social Democracy (UPADS), which was the ruling party under Lissouba and went into opposition after Lissouba’s ouster in 1997.[3]

At the first extraordinary congress of UPADS, held on 27–28 December 2006, Mouamba was elected as one of the party’s 25 vice-presidents.[4]

Mouamba broke with his party in the period preceding the 2015 constitutional referendum, choosing to take part in a government-sponsored dialogue, which the opposition boycotted, on the question of changing the constitution. The referendum, which UPADS opposed, allowed President Denis Sassou Nguesso to run for another term in the March 2016 presidential election.[3] After Sassou Nguesso was sworn in for another term on 16 April 2016, he appointed Mouamba as Prime Minister on 23 April.[2][3]
