One river, two capitals
Forming pale zones in this image, Brazzaville, capital of
the Republic of the Congo, and Kinshasa, capital of the
Democratic Republic of the Congo, are sited on either side
of the Malebo Pool, a lake 35 kilometres long and 23 wide
formed by the river Congo. Projects for a road and railway
bridge between the two banks came to nothing because of
the economic consequences for the ports of the region. Mode
