Democratic Republic of Congo opposition leader Moise Katumbi, who was barred from running in presidential elections, returned home after a court last month overturned a prison sentence.
Forming a new government has taken months, in part because of disagreements over the appointment of a Prime Minister. Katumbi has been living in exile in Belgium for three years after he was charged by former president Joseph Kabila's government of several crimes including fraud, hiring foreign mercenaries and illegally acquiring a second citizenship.
DR Congo President Felix Tshisekedi has named Sylvestre Ilunga Ilukamba as the new prime minister of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
Tshisekedi has pardoned 700 prisoners including three political opponents of his predecessor Joseph Kabila since coming to power in January.
The country's politics remain overshadowed by Kabila, who amassed extensive clout after 18 years in power.

Katumbi previously served as the governor of Katanga province from 2007 to 2015.
