  • Description

    On Thursday, May 21, celebrations were held in Kisangani, and throughout Congo-Kinshasa, to mark the Third Anniversary of the 'Peoples' Revolutionary Movement" -- the Republic's ruling party.

    President Mobutu declared a public holiday and special fetes and events were held to mark the occasion. In Kisangani one of the major attractions was a canoes race which attracted several teams from the surrounding area.

    In conjunction with the celebrations President Mobutu called the party's first convention and outlawed all other parties. The convention then nominated President Mobutu as the sole candidate in next November's Presidential election.
