    CONGO KINSHASA RECENTLY ELECTED ITS FIRST WOMAN BURGERMASTER. IN A CEREMONY AT THE EXPERIMENTAL COMMUNE OF BANDALUNGWA, ATTENDED BY M. TSHISEKIDI, THE MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR, AND GENERAL BANGALA, GOVERNOR OF THE CITY OF KINSHASA, MISS VERONICA KANI JOINED THE GROWING RANKS OF INFLUENTIAL WOMEN IN CONGO KINSHASA'S ADMINISTRATIVE AND POLITICAL LIFE.

    FIVE MINISTERS AND ALL THE CAPITAL'S BURGERMASTERS ADDED THEIR OWN GOOD WISHES TO THOSE OF GOVERNOR BANGALA ON THE ELECTION OF THIS FIRST WOMAN BURGERMASTER. MISS KANI'S NOMINATION HAS PROVED EXTREMELY POPULAR WITH THE PEOPLE OF BANDALUNGWA. AND MANY COMMENTATORS DRAW PARALLELS BETWEEN HER APPOINTMENT AND THAT OR MME. LIHAU, THE FIRST WOMAN MINISTER OF SOCIAL AFFAIRS.

    A CEREMONIAL GUARD OF HONOUR OPENED THE PROCEEDINGS. THEN, UNDER GENERAL BANGALA'S DIRECTION, MISS KANI RECEIVED THE EMBLEMS OF OFFICE. LATER SHE WAS TO PRESIDE OVER A MARCHPAST OF THE YOUTH OF THE COMMUNE, WITH YOUNG GIRLS PLAYING A PROMINENT PART IN THE CELEBRATIONS. THE EDUCATION OF YOUNG PEOPLE AND THE STIMULATION OF CIVIC PRIDE HAS BEEN A MAJOR CONCERN OF THE DESPAIRING BURGERMASTER, M. MAVUNGU.
