    THE PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE OF CONGO-KINSHASA, MR SYLVESTRE MUDINGAY, RECENTLY VISITED THE CITY OF KISANGANI -- FORMERLY STANLEYVILLE -- WHERE HE SAW SIMBA TRIBESMEN WHO HAD BEEN INVOLVED IN THE 1964 REBELLION REHABILITATED. KISANGANI STILL BEARS THE SCARS OF THE REBELLION.

    IN KISANGANI, THE GOVERNMENT IS NOW PUSHING AHEAD WITH A REBUILDING PROGRAMME. MANY BUILDINGS WERE DESTROYED DURING THE REBELLION, AND NOW THE GOVERNMENT IS PLANNING TO RECONSTRUCT THE WHOLE ORIENTALE PROVINCE.

    ONE AFTERMATH OF THE REBELLION HAS BEEN A LARGE NUMBER OF ORPHANS, ANOTHER, SICK AND INJURED PEOPLE STILL NEEDING ATTENTION. THE ORPHANS AND THE SICK ARE LOOKED AFTER IN THE CITY'S GENERAL HOSPITAL.

    THROUGHOUT THE AREA, RE-EDUCATION CENTRES HAVE BEEN SET UP TO REHABILITATE THE ONE TIME SIMBA REBELS, AND HELP THEM RE-ADJUST TO SOCIETY.

    ON THE RIVER, WAGENIA TRIBESMEN HAVE NOW BEEN ABLE TO RETURN TO WORK. THE WAGENIAS GAVE A WARN WELCOME TO MR NGUVULU, THE PLANNING AND RECONSTRUCTION HIGH COMMISSIONER WHO ARRIVED IN KISANGANI TO OPEN THE COMMISSION'S NEW OFFICES. HE AND MR NGOY, THE LOCAL REPRESENTATIVE OF THE COMMISSION, TOOK PART IN CELEBRATIONS HELD ON THE RIVER IN THEIR HONOUR.

    WHEN THE PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE, MR SYLVESTRE MUDINGAY, ARRIVED IN KISANGANI FOR A LONG-AWAITED VISIT, HE WAS MET AT THE AIRPORT BY THE GOVERNOR OF THE ORIENTALE PROVINCE, MR MOANDA.

    A PARADE OF TROOPS, YOUTH AND CIVILIAN ORGANISATIONS WAS HELD IN HIS HONOUR, AND DURING HIS VISIT, MR MUDINGAY WAS PRESENT WHEN FOOD WAS DISTRIBUTED TO CHILDREN AND NEEDY PEOPLE, BESIDES VISITING A NUMBER OF THE RE-EDUCATION CENTRES.
