Amb. Mamadou Kamara Dekamo
Amb. Dekamo was born in 1949. He has been serving as the Ambassador of the Republic of Congo to the Federal Republic of Germany since 8th May 2017.
He received a Bachelor’s degree in Natural Sciences at the Lycée Savorgnan de Brazza in Brazzaville in 1970, then a Master’s in Economics at the Moscow Timiryazev Agricultural Academy of the Russian State Agrarian University.
Throughout his career he worked as the Director of Studies and Planning at the Regional Administration from 1978, then as Director General for Youth at the Ministry of Youth and Sports from 1979 to 1984, then Director General of the Society for the Study and Promotion of Rural Development until 1992.
He served as the Minister of Communications and Telecommunications and Press Officer of the Government until 1993. Until 1997, he was Deputy of the National Assembly. He worked as the Minister of Health for 2 years, then Ambassador of the Congo to Italy and Greece and Permanent Representative to the United Nations Organisation until 2017, as well as Doyen of the African Diplomatic Corps in Rome.
Amb. Dekamo speaks Russian and French.
Diplomatic relations between the Republic of Congo and Germany have intensified since 2013, as a result of the German embassy in Brazzaville being re-opened. The German Embassy in Brazzaville had been closed in 1997 on account of the civil war.
Nevertheless the Republic of Congo is not a partner of German bilateral development cooperation. Among the German businesses operating there, is the German insurance group, Allianz, as well as companies active in the infrastructure sector and the timber industry.
Cultural cooperation between Germany and the Republic of Congo is limited in scope. Germany provides follow-up support for former scholarship holders from the country and advises students who want to study in Germany. German is an optional subject at three grammar schools in Brazzaville but is not taught at the University of Brazzaville. The only German language courses available are those offered by the private Cercle linguistique in Bakongo.
