28 December 1964
Lac Moero, Congo-Léopoldville
Moïse Katumbi Chapwe (born Moïse Soriano; 28 December 1964) is a Congolese businessman and politician. He is the governor of the Katanga Province, located in the southern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He was the first elected governor of the province and he voted for the first time (at the age of 42) during that election.
Katumbi is the younger brother of Raphael Katebe Katoto, also a Congolese businessman, now living in Belgium.
In the year he became governor, Katumbi began discussions to resolve the Kalukundi Mine ownership dispute of Africo Resources, Ltd, a Canadian mining company with a significant presence in the Katanga province.
On 31 January 2014, the Belgian weekly Marianne Belgique published a story alleging that Moïse Katumbi is registered, under a synonym, as the owner of a secret offshore company called GKMIC S.A., set up in Panama in November 2006.
