  • Description

    THE POLICE BRIGADE OF THE YOUTH WING OF CONGO DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC'S RULING PARTY -- THE MOUVEMENT POPULAIRE DE LA REVOLUION -- RECENTLY CELEBRATED ITS SECOND ANNIVERSARY WITH A PARADE AT KINSHASA'S 24TH NOVEMBER STADIUM.

    THE PARADE WAS WATCHED BY HIGH-RANKING OFFICIALS FROM THE PARTY, THE GOVERNMENT, THE ARMY AND THE POLICE, AS WELL AS THOUSANDS OF SPECTATORS.

    AFTER THE PARADE THE MEMBERS WERE ADDRESSED BY NATIONAL INSPECTOR CAMILLE MOLUNGA, WHO REMINDED HIS LISTENERS THAT THE BRIGADE HAD BEEN FORMED ON 7 FEBRUARY 1968 TO CONTROL THE ORGANISATION OF THE J.M.P.R. IT'S ROLE, HE SAID, WAS TO MAINTAIN ORDER AND SECURITY PRIMARILY, BUT IT ALSO HAD A SOCIAL ROLE IN THAT IT WAS NEEDED TO HELP WITH THE CONTROL OF VAGABONDS AND JUVENILE DELINQUENTS.

    M. MOKUNGA ADDED THAT THE TWO YEARS SINCE THE BRIGADE HAD BEEN FORMED HAD SHOWN ITS USEFULNESS.
