DRC: Shots of Kinshasa and East Kasai

Renouveau Congolais posts (FR) pictures of the poorly maintained streets of Kinshasa, the DRC's capital. Poster wonders whether the current transitional government will deliver on its promise to turn Kinshasa into a modern city if permanently elected. Mostly, poster asks why international aid money has not been used on improving the city. Renouveau also posts (FR) additional shots of Mbuji-Mayi, the capital of East Kasai province, to supplement last week's album.
