A historical reminder of 1991
As a reminder, the National Railway Company of Zaire (SNCZ) had, in 1991, undergone a reform marked by the split into three entities namely the South Railway Office (OCS), the Railway Company fer de l’Est (SFE) and the Uélé-rivière railway company (SCFUF) with a holding company based in Kinshasa.
During the reunification, the SNCC had not included within it only the OCS, the SFE and the holding company, the SCFUF remained a separate entity, hence the need to share assets. ACP/
