Info


Bunia is a city in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and is the capital of Ituri Province (and formerly the headquarters of Ituri district of the former Orientale Province, pre-2006 constitution). As of 2010 it had an estimated population of 327,837.[1]

It lies at an elevation of 1275 m on a plateau about 30 km west of Lake Albert in the Great Rift Valley, and about 25 km east of the Ituri Forest.

The city is at the center of the Ituri conflict between the Lendu and Hema. In the Second Congo War the city and district were the scene of much fighting and many civilian deaths from this conflict, and related clashes between militias and Uganda-based forces. Consequently the city is the base of one of the largest United Nations peace-keeping forces in Africa, and its headquarters in northeastern DRC. The area's natural resources include gold mines over which militias and foreign forces have been fighting.


I must admit Congolese people are true survivors and bold. Despite how much trouble this place has gone through with all the militia and Conflicts, Bunia has surprised me with how much development has been done and still being done despite the never ending stupid conflicts in this region. I see new houses being erected meaning business are growing. Only if the country had a proper functioning government and peace & stability.

Here are some pictures


Green as usual

Colonial buildings ruin the views with the old rusted roofs :lol:

You beat me to this thread. Good job though.

Bunia, the one that saw tribal butchery in 1999 and still have rebels roaming about it.

But it's coming back. The road from Beni to Bunia is doing lots of work.

Congolese have the working spirit, the resilience , no loss of hope.

But how can we manage to get a functioning government?

With Gov Bamanisa's work ethic, in 5 -10 years Province Orientale will be a different place. ONce again, the key is development from base, not always from the top ( from Central government).

Central government is limited on what it can do from the top, while municipal and provincial governments can actually do more to improve people's lives since they intervene from the bottom level.

If Bamanisa had all the financing he needed, he will be able to impact people more than the central government of Kinshasa

If the CG in Kinshasa had a thinking brain, they would have decentralized the country long time ago.

There is no guaranty that the decentralization will work for all provinces. There are corrupt officials at the local and provincial levels.

The corruption, mismanagement and nepotism must be eradicated and good governance must be promoted.
