The dealer says he will not give a kiosk to the family of Moïse Kabagambe
Rio de Janeiro City Hall’s proposal is for the sites to be turned into a memorial honoring Congolese and African culture
MARCOS PORTO / AGENCY THE DAY / STATE OF CONTENTRio de Janeiro City Hall has offered the management of Biruta and Tropicália kiosks to relatives of Congolese
The confusion surrounding the kiosk concession for the family of Moise Kabagambe is confusing. The reason for this is that Celso Carnaval, one of the concessionaires, said he had no intention of returning the concession to the commercial establishment. Orla Rio, the company that manages the kiosks, has been leading a dispute with the dealer in court since last year for a series of irregularities noted on the site, in particular health. However, there is still no opinion from Fluminense’s judiciary on the matter. Celso Carnaval promises to take the dispute to its final consequences. In turn, Orla Rio told the Young Pan News who will await the decision on the takeover of the Biruta kiosk. If the result is positive, he will proceed with the creation of the memorial to the death of Moïse Kabagambe, assassinated at the Tropicália kiosk last month. the prefecture of Rio de Janeirothrough the Municipal Department of Finance and Planning, offered the management of the Biruta and Tropicália kiosks, on the edge of Barra da Tijuca, to the Congolese family, by mutual agreement with Orla Rio. The idea is for the sites to be transformed into a memorial to Congolese and African culture, with the aim of fostering the social and economic integration of African refugees and reaffirming the city’s commitment to promoting opportunities for everyone. So far, three attackers have been arrested for the murder of Moïse, but the family maintains that other people were involved.
