The not so nice side of Kolwezi – Part I

Since I published some pictures of Kolwezi in the past, I heard a lot of feedback that it doesn’t look so terrible in the DRC. That’s true but only because I took mainly pictures from nice things. So this time I went through the town to take pictures from the other side of Kolwezi, literally and figuratively.

Here some pictures I took on bike rides from Kolwezi to Lake Nzilo. I came across an old abandoned mine where artisanals are still looking for copper minerals. Further towards the lake the local people were still looking for minerals in the River.
