Introduction: Congo

Description of Congo

Congo: A republic in central Africa lying between GABON and DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO. Its capital is Brazzaville. It became a territory of French Equatorial Africa in 1910, a French overseas territory in 1946, an autonomous republic within the French Community in 1958, and achieved independence in 1960. The country takes its name from the Congo River running through it: the Bantu name for the river means mountain, with reference to the local topography. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p285 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p123).
