Congo chaos 10

Congo chaos 10

Residents of Vitshumbi living in an old Belgian house built during colonial times. The Belgians once operated an industrial fishery here, but little of the profits were ever seen by local populations. Now fishermen here have returned to their collective way of doing business and things are improving. They are, however, always under threat by regional rebellions, corrupt central governments and oil speculators.
