Do you really believe in this hoax? Nobody in his or her right mind would realize such an investment in a country without a minimum of political stability. In the last ten years, South Korean investors have come and gone, Belgian investors have come and gone and no deep-sea port has been constructed in Banana. Even the Chinese, the most easy-going investors in Africa, have turned their back on the JoKa’s flagship: the “contract chinois”. As it is, investment opportunities in the DRC are plenty, but the political instability does not inspire confidence in investors. The Hilton Hotel in Kinshasa was supposed to be inaugurated in April 2016, has anyone heard of those investors lately?

Is DR Congo airport the most chaotic?

The BBC's Charlotte Attwood is in the Democratic Republic of Congo for a reporting trip and has shared some pictures with us from Mbandaka airport in the north-west.

She says the airport is one of the most chaotic and aggressive places she has ever visited.

A cleric, who was a fellow passenger, told her that "it's easier to get to heaven than it is through a Congolese airport".

Here are a few pictures that she snapped, including a piece of hand luggage which aroused her curiosity:

Congolese, including labor unions, are not up to date with modern business management techniques....always wanting to rely on " la direction centrale " which means Kinshasa.....

Very said for us Congolese..

It's actually the airport in Mbandaka, Equateur. To me, even Mbandaka airport still has a lot of potential due to geographical position as well as being the heart of timber and palm, cocoa industries.....

What's happening there is still heartbreaking..

Ethiopia is a serious country because they are serious people with self confidence and love of their country.

Congo on the other hand is not a serious country and most people are not serious and suffer from low self esteem

Empor Selasi is the one who created Ethioian Airlines and Ethiopians are so proud of their airline and look at today its one of the best airlines in the world.

Everything Mobutu created, killed it himself and Joka burried them all.

Just look at the Ethiopian diasora and Congolese one. complete different..Congolese diaspora is one of the most desorganized.

Remember a diaspora is a reflection of a community or country.

RVA like Pius said should only be restricted to air traffic control and regulation enforcement....Airports should all be under provinces and that's where Taxes need to be paid...even SNEL, REgideso, OVD, Education and Helthcare all under provinces and counties/territories.

Its sad to see how they ruined their own province, and abandon it completely. I don't understand this at all. despite all the resources that are there. and even better they had political and economical powers for 32 years. that's enough to transform the entire country., let lone of the province.

Kisangani: Joseph Kabila Launches Rehabilitation Works at Bangboka Airport

On Friday, July 7, the head of state, Joseph Kabila, launched the rehabilitation of Bangboka International Airport in Kisangani (Tshopo).

This work will be carried out by the Chinese company Zengwei Technical Cooperation for twelve months for a cost of more than six million US dollars.

This will include masonry, plumbing, electrical installations and equipment.

"It will have to demolish the damaged existing part including the tiles, the rehabilitation works of large areas with installation of modern airport equipment including the roofing waterproofing works," explained the Director General of the Régie des Airways (RVA), Abdallah Bilenge.

He also noted that the Chinese company will have to install three x-ray scanners, three detection, control and safety gantries, a large baggage control device and three check-in desks as well as rehabilitate electricity.

For Abdallah Bilenge, Bangboka airport will also see the state of its water system, air conditioning and ventilation improved.

Once this work is completed, Bangboka International Airport will resume its place as the hub in the heart of the DRC and Africa in favor of economic operators and tourism.

"This airport is located in the center of the country and can well serve Europe as well as South Africa, East or West easily for the movement of goods. This is a good thing for us, "said Maurice Wamara, one of the economic operators of Kisangani.
Kisangani: Joseph Kabila lance les travaux de réhabilitation de l’aéroport de Bangboka

Le chef de l’Etat, Joseph Kabila a lancé, vendredi 7 juillet, les travaux de réhabilitation de l’aéroport international de Bangboka, à Kisangani (Tshopo).

Ces travaux vont être exécutés par l’entreprise chinoise Zengwei Technical Cooporation pendant douze mois pour un coût de plus de six millions de dollars américains.

Cette entreprise devra notamment faire de la maçonnerie, la plomberie, les installations électriques et l’équipement.

«Elle devra procéder à la démolition de la partie existante endommagée y compris les carreaux, les travaux de réhabilitation de gros aires avec installation des équipements aéroportuaires modernes notamment les travaux d’étanchéité de la toiture », a expliqué le directeur général de la Régie des voies aériennes (RVA), Abdallah Bilenge.

Il a également noté que l’entreprise chinoise devra installer trois scanners rayon X, trois portiques de détection, de contrôle et de sûreté, un dispositif de contrôle des bagages volumineux sans oublier trois comptoirs d’enregistrement ainsi que réhabiliter l’électricité.

Pour Abdallah Bilenge, l’aéroport de Bangboka verra par ailleurs l’état de son système d’eau, climatisation et ventilation amélioré.

Une fois ces travaux terminés, l’aéroport international de Bangboka reprendra sa place de la plaque tournante au cœur de la RDC et de l’Afrique en faveur des opérateurs économique et le tourisme.

«Cet aéroport est placé au centre du pays et peut bien desservir l’Europe tout comme l’Afrique du Sud, de l’Est ou de l’Ouest facilement pour la circulation des marchandises. C’est une bonne chose pour nous», a rapporté Maurice Wamara, un des opérateurs économiques de Kisangani.

ADB Safegate Transforms the Runway at Goma International Airport

Goma International Airport (GOM) in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is a strategic airport used by MONUSCO, a United Nations mission for peacekeeping in the region. The airport is operated by Régie de Voies Aériennes (RVA), the Congolese Airport Authority and leading airport operator in the DRC. Since the volcanic eruption of Mount Nyiragongo in 2002 when the airport was overrun with lava, operations had become very limited. To upgrade GOM with efficient airfield ground lighting (AGL) systems and optimize operations MONUSCO selected ADB Safegate.

The volcanic eruption in 2002 saw the Goma International Airport overrun with lava and ashes covering nearly one-third of the main runway making it impossible for large aircrafts to land and disrupting daytime operations. Night time operations were also affected due to damage caused to the ground lighting,” said Eddy Malumba Kakese, technical director of RVA (Régie des Voies Aériennes). “ADB Safegate has been our long-standing partner providing airfield lighting systems and airfield solutions ever since the first airports were constructed and commissioned in the 1950s. Now, with the new airfield ground lighting (AGL) system, 9 out of 54 aerodromes have been re-equipped. With the contribution of MONUSCO and World Bank’s financial aid, we aim to rehabilitate not just the runway, but also the taxiway and parking ground for seamless operations.”

MONUSCO will be moving its headquarters to Goma, which made it critical to upgrade the airport to the latest standards and make it functional for night time operation. Not only was the new airfield lighting system and rehabilitation of the airport important to our missions, it will have a big impact on the economic development in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo,” said UN Project Manager Engr. Jacques Tshimpanga.

If Ndjili airport was a stand alone airport ( aeroport autonome) financially from RVA, it will be very easy for Ndjili airport management to get financing its own financing to build this kind of terminal pictured above...

Being bundled up and combined with other RVA airports is making it unattractive for Ndjili to get its own financing...Congolese really have a hard time adopting newer management techniques like in other countries....Very backward government and syndicats (labor unions)....

Even Brazza airport is autonomous why can't Ndjili...?

Even without autonomy, N’djili does not deserve to be in its actual state. We are facing a major governance problem in the DRC. As Prime Minister (2008-2012), Adolphe Muzito recognized the economic necessity of divesting RVA of its airports management branch. The first step towards that end was the construction of a modern passenger terminal at N’djili Airport under the BOT regime (Build, Operate and Transfer). A call for tenders was issued by COPIREP ( the government agency in charge of public enterprises reform) and many international companies and consortia responded ( CPB – Yorum – Dorsh (Turkey), SNC Lavalin (Canada), Groupement BMCE Capital / Orascom / Elsewedy / Target / Pygma (Egypt), Buygues Bâtiments International (France), Goldharvest Investments / Mohamed Abdulmohsin Al Khafari & Sons Company (Kuwait), ATS & Associates (China Communication Construction Company) (China)).
Upon his nomination as Prime Minister, Matata Ponyo (2012-2016) scrapped the project and ordered, instead, the construction of a warehouse-like “provisional” terminal.

The African Development Bank pledged to assist the DRC financially in modernizing its airports infrastructure if the government presents viable projects. As for China, it put $ 60 billion at Africa’s disposal for development projects, provided individual countries come up with rational projects. Finally, the World Bank allocated an envelope of $ 2.8 billion for development projects in the DRC, provided the DRC fulfills the disbursement conditions. So far, the DRC is yet to seize those opportunities. The country is in dire need of new infrastructure for its development, offers to finance the projects are on the table and yet the successive governments have been unable to define a rational development policy. What a shame!

DRC: dry port of Kasumbalesa, the project is valued at 300 million USD





The Multimodal Freight Management Office (Ogefrem) and Rail and Road Africa (RRA) of South Africa have just signed a partnership agreement this Friday, May 11, 2018 in Lumbumbashi. This concerns the financing, construction, development, operation and maintenance of the dry port of Kasumbalesa. The total cost of the project is estimated at around 300 million USD.

"Ogefrem comes in at 49%. And the consortium represented by RRA comes with 51%. We also bring our land and the public power that the government has given us, "said Patient Saiba during the signing ceremony of this contract at the headquarters of the Office in Lubumbashi.

Towards modernization

If, until proven otherwise, the Kasumbalesa border post constitutes a kind of obstacle to cross-border trade, the construction of this dry port proves to be an appropriate response. The boss of Ogefrem welcomes the fact that the Congolese authorities have taken the measure of the challenges that were needed.

"I would like here to pay tribute to the President of the Republic, Joseph Kabila thanks to the dream of which this fantastic project is being realized as part of his vision, that of modernizing the DRC. Because, this project will concretize the installation of an infrastructure at the height of its vision and the size of the DRC. We are here in the African dynamic to catch up to have infrastructure for international trade, "he said.

With this signing of the partnership agreement, work start becomes more than imminent even though no specific date has been advanced by the parties.

Socio-economic impacts

The implementation of this "Kasumbalesa Dry Port" project will create jobs for Congolese youth and smooth trade between the DRC, SADC and COMESA.

Even more, this dry port is going to be a terminal of all the goods that will come from abroad will be disembarked there. And Congolese carriers can take them to dispatcher them inside the country. This movement also applies to exports. Therefore, it is to be expected that the Congolese freight transport sector will be boosted.

According to the CEO of RRA, this dry port of Kasumbalesa "will change the way of doing business in Africa. The ambition is for it to become the most modern dry port in sub-Saharan Africa. I thank the entire Ogefrem team for the efficiency they showed during the negotiations and for the hospitality we are receiving ".

He also reaffirmed, on behalf of the entire consortium, his commitment to this partnership for the common benefit.

Honor to Ogefrem staff

For Patient Saiba, the moment is historic. And everything is in the spotlight of all Ogefrem staff to see this project become a reality.

"The dry port of Kasumbalesa is for Ogefrem what Inga is for the DRC. It's a dream that every agent cherished. There are some who have died without having seen it. Several CEOs followed one another without seeing today's event. I encourage the agents of Ogefrem and through them the population to appropriate this African infrastructure, "he said.

Delegates from the DRC's South Africa Embassy and the Congolese Ministry of Transport, as well as Ogefrem officials and staff, attended the ceremony which took place at the headquarters of this Office in Lubumbshi, the province of Upper Katanga.

The economic benefits are potentially huge. As you know, the DRC is basically a landlocked country. We only have 39 km of coastline in the western part of the country. The only way to organize trade efficiently is to construct dry ports in the country's strategic ports of entry, namely in Lufu (West, border to Angola), Bunagana (East, border to Uganda) and Kasumbalesa (South-East, border to Zambia). However, there is a missing link that will limit the success of the project: the poor state of inner road and railway networks. The purpose of a dry port is to expedite transshipment of sea cargo to inland destinations. If the communication routes are not practicable, storage problems will ensue and will eventually paralyze the port activities. The existence of practicable inland road/railway networks is a prerequisite for a successful dry port. Unfortunately, this is not the case in the DRC in general and in the south-eastern part of the country in particular.
The completion of the Katende hydroelectric dam and Kashala Bonzola stadium has been delayed because building materials and equipment cannot be forwarded from the sea port to the building sites due to derelict roads and railway line. If a dry port had existed in Kasumbalesa, it would not have changed anything to that situation.

New hope for cross border traders



A proposed rail line from Francistown to the pristine resort township of Kazungula carries hope for the informal cross border traders plying their trade between Botswana and Zambia, Voice Money has learnt.

Considered the ‘hassled adolescent’ in the regional railway family, Botswana Railways (BR)’s plans to construct a railway line from Francistown to Kazungula are currently underway and pacing according to plan.

BR chief executive officer Leonard Makwinja made that announcement a couple of weeks ago when delivering a keynote address at the 11th edition of the annual Northern Letlhafula and Cultural Day at Tatisiding village’s EBAT Lodge.

According to Makwinja, the multi-billion project that will link Botswana and the neighboring Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries such as Zambia and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), is expected to kick start in the next two years.

Distance for the entire railway network of BR is as follows; Main Line – 640 km; Francistown to Sua Pan (branch line) – 174.5 km; Palapye to Morupule Colliery (branch line) – 16 km; Private Sidings – 50 km; Service Sidings – 20 km; Station Yards – 30 km; Crossing Loops – 20 km.

An additional 650km from Francistown to Kazungula will definitely boost BR’s future fortunes, he said. “This will add value to BR’s coffers,” said an optimistic Makwinja amid a thunderous round of applause from the gathering.

For years, BR has continued to make operating losses due to among others, huge infrastructure and backlog of rolling stock overhaul maintenance expenditure not matched by an increase in revenue.

However, the business community plying its trade between Botswana and Zambia alongside other countries in the north and eastern Africa has hailed the proposed rail line, as a panacea to the transporting woes.

We have waited for years for the BR or any other rail freight company to come up with a meaningful proposal of this competence,” said Isaac Molepo of G&S Haulage (Pty) Ltd based in Francistown.

Molepo said his company has been incurring a lot of costs when transporting bags of cement and salt to the war ravaged but lucrative enough DRC market. “There is a lot of business in the DRC. The problem has been transporting goods to that country. BR has brought us a solution,” he said.

Local and Zambian cross border traders have also welcomed the BR proposal. “I cannot personally wait for rail line. Road transport is expensive compared to rail one,” said Pamela Ngoma, a Zambian cross border trader.

Other cross border traders told this publication that the rail line carries hope for them. In separate interviews, cross border traders said the railway line will make their traveling easy and cheaper resulting in them realizing profits out of their trading.

Ngoma and several others buy clothing, electrical gadgets and various goods from the Chinese merchants in Francistown and Gaborone for reselling in Zambia and Malawi as well as Zimbabwe.

Any rail line that will link the SADC countries will be economically beneficial to all member states concerned. However, in our case, the benefit can only be partial and geographically limited. Only border cities (and maybe regions) will be the main beneficiaries. As long as there will be no practicable roads and rail line within the country, no across the board economic development will be possible.
