What do you rather have ? This tiny not bad looking terminal or the old one?
Why do people think an airport only consist of a nice fancy looking terminal building for travelling passengers ???

An airport is not just about a terminal building .. It's firstly about the safety of the taking off and the landing of planes and by that I mean a nice and secure runway , a modern control tower , a system of firefighting in place ...

Please be aware that it cost a lot of money to build a control tower alone ...because you have to install modern equipments that will ensure the safe flying and landing of planes ...and control the country s airspace ....please take your time to enquire how much it cost to put a control tower together and you will realise that it cost far much more than building a terminal .

Have you noticed that there is indeed a bran new control tower at ndjili airport ?
The runway which is also one of the main priority when constructing an airport , I understand it has been rebuilt. Not just in kinshasa , but Lubumbashi and Goma which are 3 out of 4 international airports you have in DRC.

They have also invested in constructing a firefighting center at the same airport and I understand that a lot has been done to ensure the airport electricity demand is met in case of the SNEL fails as we are all aware to provide. All this cost money my brother ...

Before you think fancy building , think security and when you have security then starts complaining about how ugly the terminal looks .
Cause it doesn't matter how nice your terminal is , if there is no security no international airline will send their planes there like it was almost the case with air france cause it was beginning to cost them so much money with their insurer ...
Do you like the control tower? Or is it ugly ? Did you know it cost far more to build that control tower than the terminal you call ugly?
Can a plane land safely in ndjili today ?
Do you think the runway is ugly and has to be rebuild?
Will a plane land there with or without this ugly looking terminal provided security is met .? Lol

So let's us be balanced and fair .. We all know we are the great CONGO we deserve soooo much better but sometimes you have to start with the A B C rather than algebra ...
Just appreciate for now and see if the big building you so desire don't come...

By the way my comments or argument are not because I am endorsing any political group , I don't do politics I am just an observer and I m trying to be fair although I know we can and we will do better.

Dans la paix

Come on Mulopwe, cut it some slack. Everyone wants a permanent airport...even this gov..but were unable to secure the financing aspect of a huge permanent airport...

This temporary "warehouse" may hold the key for future financing....

Also u may need to respect this "warehouse" because after spending time in other Congolese cities, it may end up its life cycle being also the future Mbuji Mayi airport.....Just saying. ..

Through this article one gets an idea of the amount of funds and the sources of these funds. We can also appreciate to learn that the CG is already thinking about the final and definitive air terminal of 45000m2.

the airport looks good. Although I expect that it might end up being badly managed like so many other projects in the country. A quand le moment ou l'on retirera à la RVA le monopole de la gestion des aéroports de tout le pays pour le confier à des sociétés distinctes et indépendantes?

Congolese opposition's focus is almost always on the individual not the issue itself.

- Complaints: are about a person's behavior, a specific thing, time, and place.

With (constructive) complaints there is no attack, there a direct focus on the actual problem.

John Gottman (marriage advisor) points to criticism as one of the basic relationship poisons that breeds contempt, also known as hatred.

High levels of contempt for your partner is the number one predictor of unhappiness and divorce.

- EXAMPLES:
PRODUCTIVE COMPLAINT: "I am so mad at you for not doing the dishes last night like you said you would.
I had to deal with them this morning and was late for work!" Stop there. Shut up.

This will focus your spouse on what really happened.
Keep the conversation on the working-out-the-dishes problem to find out what is possible with that frustration.

It is easy to turn a complaint into poisonous criticism by just adding, "What is wrong with you?" or "Don’t you love me?" or "How many times to I have to tell you to do something?" "You are just like your mother." "Your therapy isn't working."

you see the difference ?
really dude? that all you can do? im i that dumb not to know the difference between Criticism and complain... keep your smart pants to yourself man, you're not here to teach. I don't know what you thought before doing this, but my conversation with butembo wasn't about misunderstanding the two words.

Nice pics but here are some questions for every project we do in our country:
1.for one of the most richest country in Africa, do we deserve this?
2.with more 70 million people and 10 million in Kinshasa, do we deserve this?
3.the budget allowed for the project. Oh man! ( caisse ya l'etat, go pass, 5 chantires, revolution de la modernite, cooperation bla bla bla...) for this?

It seems to me that everything here labeled as temporary with a permanent budget become permanent project.
We have to compare ourselves with emerging countries bordering us and those with attractive or promising future like Angola,Nigeria,Sudan,Ethiopia or South Africa. I know many of u here visited some of these African country and just by their airport easily u understand what they want and where they want to go.
If we need to be great and competitor we need to check what is happening elsewhere ask some ? #nalobi

It just so sad to see Congolese people being so pessimistic. When this cinq chantier was first initiated nobody gave it a chance. People told themselves Kabila is taking us for a ride , but look how far we have come. We are so quick to praise other countries progress but always critise our, despite the international community giving us a positive outlook. Angola is being praise for it development yet 2/3 of it population live in poverty, excess to clean water is a nightmare. Considering where we are coming from I think this government , despite it being corrupt, it making an effort to change the country's image

J'ai l'impression que beaucoup d'entres nous oublies que cette nouvelle extension de l'aeroport international de Ndijili n'est pas final. C'est un aeroport modulaire, en d'autres termes, provisoire donc c'est normal qu'il ne resemble pas a un aeroport que le grand Congo Kinshasa devrait avoir.
Le soucis que nous devrions tous avoir est que cette aeroport modulaire ne devienne pas permanent.

Comme beaucoup ne croyait pas à la matérialisation de ce projet et des autres projets d'ailleurs, ils ne se sont jamais informés donc il est "tout à fait normal" que même le mot modulaire ne suscite pas de questionnement.
