    Background: During the course of his private visit to the interior of Congo Kinshasa, President Joeph Mobutu, who was accompanied by his wife and seven children, hoped to remain unrecognised. But wherever he went he was instantly known by all who saw him.

    President Mobutu and his family mixed freely with the people in all places they visited, enjoying the pleasures of everyday life.

    He and his family rode on a bus; the children enjoyed a ride on a carousel; and there was the spectacle of the Hydro-Electric scheme and its dam to be enjoyed at Tshopo, where they also watched a canoe race.
