Description
The Congo River is regarded as the umbilical cord of Central Africa as it flows throughout the geographical heart of the African continent. The Congo is also the cleanest of the major rivers of the world because of prolonged civil wars that have deterred the development of industry and other sources of pollution. With the opening of the twentieth century, local people hope for peace but fear the industrial pollution that may result from it.
