    THE VILLAGE IS THE BIRTHPLACE OF THE MINISTER, M. JOSEPH NSINGA, AND THE CELEBRATION WAS ATTENDED BY THE PRESIDENT AS A MARK OF SPECIAL APPRECIATION.

    PRESIDENT MOBUTU SAID THAT THE NSINGAS HAD, THROUGHOUT HALF A CENTURY, GIVEN A GREAT EXAMPLE OF FAMILY HARMONY.

    TRADITIONAL DANCING IN THE NSINGAS' HONOUR CONCLUDED THE FESTIVITIES.
