Lydia Mutyebele Ngoi

Alderwoman of Housing, Public Patrimony and Equal Opportunities.

I was born on 7 December 1978 in Lubumbashi. I arrived in Brussels at the age of 6. I obtained my law degree from the ULB and a degree in private international law. After that, I worked as a lawyer before being hired at various political offices in Brussels.

In 2006, I was elected for the first time as a municipal councilor of the City of Brussels, where I held various mandates as a director at various non-profit organizations and public companies.

I was also member of the board of the Public Welfare Centre (CPAS-OCMW) of the City of Brussels.

I am very active in the associations of Brussels, such as the non-profit organization 'Groupement des Femmes Africaines Inspirantes et Actives'. This association wants to help women to develop all their talents, also at a professional level.

I am also a musician by training, and now lead a gospel choir.

Brussels is a dynamic and multicultural city where everyone has the right to be treated with respect regardless of social, geographic and cultural background.

Politics must be within the reach of all citizens. So we have to be close to the residents of the city so that they feel involved in the management of the city where they live.
