    Background: Some avenues in the town of Lubumbashi, Congo-Kinshasa, just north of the border with Zambia, have been completely re-surfaced thanks to a timely Government road re-building programme.

    President Mobutu authorised the release of funds for the road programme a few months ago, and placed the money at the disposal of the Katanga Governor.

    Work has gone quickly ahead, and traffic is already using the newly-surfaced thoroughfares in Lubumbashi.
