  • Description

    The exodus continues by air and sea of Belgian families from the Belgian Congo - due for independence June 30 - women and children returning to Belgium received waves of farewell from their menfolk June 19 at Elizabethville Airport. Many of the men decided to remain in the Congo to continue to work at their posts until their possible dismissal under the new Republic.

    The Congo's probable first President, reports said June 20, will be Joseph Kasavubu, head of the Congolese Abako Party, with the leader of the rival National Congolese Movement, Patrice Lumumba, as his Prime Minister.
