    SYNOPSIS: Congo-Kinshasa celebrated the eleventh anniversary of its independence from Belgium June the 30th, and part of the recent festivities included a military and civil parade in Kikwit, Bandundu Province. Governor Kaniki was among dignitaries present at the parade.

    Joining the people in their celebration were the National Congolese Army and the National Police, who took part in a parade headed by army veterans. Earlier, a thanksgiving service had been held in Kikwit Cathedral.

    The festivities were organised to represent national solidarity, and faith in the Congolese President, General Joseph Mobutu. For the Congo, said officials, was entering a new and peaceful decade after the violence of the first few years of independence. Now, the people could look forward to a peaceful and prosperous future.
