Great job Butembo. Yes, the Matadi route is not as wide as the others. A 2x2 is the minimum for that type of roads. By the way, I am planning to be home for end of June, mid-July and I would try to take some pictures when possible. This is not always an easy thing to do.

Splendid job Butembo 21!

You have done what Roger Busima and Jean-Marie Kassamba are paid for doing but they don't give a damn.

Jean-Marie Kassamba is being fed by the government to assure the visibility of the whole reconstruction project but until now, he is shining by his "invisibility". No renders, no update pictures of ongoing works on the website.

Only in the DRC is mediocrity rewarded. Depressing!

I definitely have to get some pictures. However,a bout a month ago, I was listening to some radio program on Radio Okapi and the head responsible of the tourism industry mentioned that a new law was put forth to parliament for the organisation of touristic activities in the country. As funny as it may looks, it appears they have never been a regulation before that. Part of the regulation will be such that people will be allowed to take pictures freely like it's done in most country. Hopefully this should be adopted in the parliament by the end of the year. Also, people will need to be trained on how to welcome people, specially in airports, police, military, a school of tourism will need to be put in place and so many other things need to be set-up before we can be considered as a touristic country.

Agree with you 100%. That's what gets me mad in this country. This guy has lived in Europe for so long and cant even apply what he has learned to his own country. Shame!
