SADECU calls for the relaunch of works on the UPN – Pumping road section via Sanga Mamba-Malweka

Kinshasa, April 27th, 2021 (CPA) .- Participants in the social forum organized on Saturday by the Association “Santé-développement-culture” (SADECU), in collaboration with the Federation of Associations and the financial support of the Hanns Foundation Seidel (FHS), in the commune of Ngaliema, pleaded for the government to restart construction work on the UPN – Pumping road section via Sanga Mamba and Malweka, which had been stopped several months ago, to the detriment of the socio-economic life of the population of this region. The president of the board of directors of SADECU, Floribert Mwanza Lundemba, during his intervention, specified that this event placed under the theme: « The stoppage of works of the road section UPN – Pumping via Sanga Mamba – Malweka and its impact on community production”, aimed to open a debate around the road inaccessibility of this road, to demonstrate the consequences produced by the stoppage of works, to reflect on practical and palliative resolutions that could relieve the problems needs of the people, as well as to make heard the cry of heart of the people of Malweka. One way to get the government to plan this project which, once completed, will improve the living conditions of the populations, particularly access to basic necessities from the interior of the country, he added. . SADECU’s community expert, Clément Kabeya Mbongo, who spoke about the damage and consequences of this work stoppage indicated that the DRC, rich in natural resources, presents development opportunities, with its two seasons, namely: dry and rainy season, likely to favor its progress. Regarding the city of Kinshasa, he particularly mentioned some development obstacles to be taken up by the urban authority, in particular its physical characteristic marked by the municipalities reputed to be erosive (Kimbanseke, Mont Ngafula, Ngaliema), those exposed to floods ( Ngaba, Matete, Limete, Kinshasa), semi erosive (Maluku, N’sele and Makala), as well as those called stable (Gombe, Ngiri Ngiri, Kasa-Vubu and Kalamu). While falling under all these categories of municipalities face problems which are summed up by poor water management and the lack of adequate urbanization. Mr. Félix Lwamba, SADECU expert, having addressed the topic « Community production in the face of road inaccessibility in Malweka », demonstrated the increased poverty of the population and the difficulties due to the stopping of this work. The participants agreed to set up a pressure group made up of engineers, politicians, businessmen, representatives of churches, etc. in order to win the case.
