The Boat

The Boat We travel into the heart of DRC along the 1,700 km Congo River. It's a journey that provides a rare insight into a country still struggling for peace.
There's a saying in the DRC: if the river is happy, the country is happy. "The river ensures the unity of the country," explains director Jean Casongo. "It feeds us and it unifies us." But since the war, the river boat industry has collapsed. Now, the government hopes to revitalise it again. (SABC)
