Where is that "Maluku"? The only Maluku Google Earth manages to find is in Northern Congo and there are only unpaved roads there.

Maluku is an area in Kinshasa, in the Tshangu District.

Northern Congo won't be seeing any paved roads anytime soon, the government don't think - the leadership very reckless and ignorant. The only way I can see roads being built there in the next decade is if oil is discovered and they need export routes. Sad reality.

The true size of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

I've added the main cities, with their population in 2011.

The basic transportation network, as you can see, we are basically starting from scratch as far as all weather roads

Weird street pattern in Mbuji-Mayi, one of the largest cities in the DRC. Some strangely organized street pattern amidst the usual planning chaos. I have no idea what this is.

The economy is based on diamonds, which are of course flown out. I guess most of the food comes from local farms, though it's hard to imagine that much food being produced within dirt road transport distance. Hence the quasi-urban farms.
