About CongoLive!

The radio show

CongoLive! is a weekly radio show, providing listeners with views and news from the richest and mostly forgotten country in the heart of Africa showcasing the cultural strengths and beauty of Congolese people revealing the richness of the land and its people.

The show is aired on WOL Baltimore, every saturday (1 pm Central, 2 pm Eastern – US time). It is hosted by Patricia Lokwa and Kambale Musavuli. #CongoLive.

The reason

Since 1996, more than six million people have died in the Congo in battles to control its vast mineral resources. Caught in the middle of this vicious cycle of violence, are women and children who have borne the brunt of the brutality with rape being used as a weapon of war.

At the same time, Congo, sitting in the heart of Africa, is the home of an estimated 24 trillion in mineral wealth, the mighty Congo River and the second largest rainforest in the world.

The ambition

With a cultural impact across the African continent through its music, event reporting about the Congo seeks a consistent external outlet. CongoLive! (the “Show“) is the vehicle to achieve this objective.

Based out of the Washington, DC area with revolving hosts based in Europe and DR Congo, the Show is a platform for engaged commentary, news, authentic Congolese music and artists as developments unfold in the Congo and intersects with stories across Africa.
