    PRESIDENT JOSEPH MOBUTU RECENTLY INVITED MEMBERS OF THE POLITICAL BUREAU OF THE "MOVEMENT POPULAIRE DE LA REVOLUTION" (M.P.R.) - THE GOVERNING PARTY - FOR A TWO-DAY CRUISE ABOARD THE PRESIDENTIAL YACHT "M/S MOBUTU." DURING THE CRUISE THEY HELD SEVERAL MEETINGS. LATER THE PRESIDENT CALLED AT MUSHIE AND AT KIBAMBILI - WHERE HE WAS MET BY HUGE CROWDS AND MADE SEVERAL SPEECHES.

    DURING THE YACHT-BOARD MEETINGS, IT IS STATED THAT THE PRESIDENT AND THE MEMBERS OF THE M.P.R. DISCUSSED MATTERS OF THE PARTY AND MADE PLANS FOR THEIR CONCERTED ACTION DURING THE COMING YEAR.

    AT MUSHIE, PRESIDENT MOBUTU SPOKE WITH THE REGIONAL ADMINISTRATOR WHO REQUESTED THE CONSTRUCTION OF NEW SCHOOLS AND MEDICAL CENTRES, PROMISING HIM THAT HIS REQUESTS WOULD BE CONSIDERED SYMPATHETICALLY BY THE GOVERNMENT.

    THE VISIT TO KIBAMBILI HAD A DUAL PURPOSE - FIRSTLY, IT WAS A COURTESY VISIT TO THE BIRTHPLACE OF MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR NSINGA, WHO ACCOMPANIED THE PRESIDENT; SECONDLY, IT ALLOWED PRESIDENT MOBUTU TO MEET WITH LOCAL AUTHORITIES TO DISCUSS THE PROBLEMS OF THE AREA AND HOW THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT COULD HELP SOLVE THEM.

    ON ALL THE STOPS, THE PRESIDENT WAS MET BY HUGE ENTHUSIASTIC CROWDS.
