  • Description

    REGIONAL LEADERS OF CONGO-KINSHASA'S RULING MOVEMENT OF THE POPULAR REVOLUTION (M.P.R.) HAVE BEEN ATTENDING A NATIONAL SEMINAR IN KINSHASA. RECENTLY, THEY WERE INVITED BY PRESIDENT MOBUTU TO JOIN HIM ON A RELAXING CRUISE ON THE CONGO RIVER "TO THINK ABOUT WHAT THEY HAD LEARNED ALL WEEK."
    THE CRUISE ALSO GAVE THE M.P.R. LEADERS AN IDEA OF THE EXTENT OF THE POPULARITY OF BOTH THEIR LEADER AND THE PARTY. THEY LEFT THE BOAT SEVERAL TIMES TO RECEIVE THE WARM GREETINGS OF THE PEOPLE. PRESIDENT MOBUTU SPOKE TO THE PEOPLE OF THE MERITS OF CIVIC ACTION AND THE NEED FOR EVERYONE TO WORK TOGETHER. AT MALUKU, HE WAS CARRIED IN TRIUMPH BY THE PEOPLE TO A DAIS.

    THE WIDOW OF PATRICE LUMUMBA, MADAME PAULINE LUMUMBA, WHO WAS PRESENT, WAS ALSO CARRIED IN TRIUMPH. PATRICE LUMUMBA, NOW REGARDED AS A CONGOLESE MARTYR, WAS THE FIRST PRIME MINISTER AFTER INDEPENDENCE AND WAS MURDERED IN KATANGA IN 1961. MADAME LUMUMBA RECENTLY RETURNED FROM EGYPT, WHERE SHE'S BEEN LIVING IN VOLUNTARY EXILE.
