    "Zaire (Congo) is estimated to hold 13 percent of the world's hydroelectrical potential. The largest site is the Inga hydroelectrical complex. Smaller plants provided electricity to primarly urban areas. These included complexes on the Inkisi River near Kinshasa, on the Tshopo River near Kisangani, on the Aruwimi River near Bunia, on the Ruzizi River supplying Bukavu and Burundi, and other smaller stations." [F. Scott Bobb, 1999: Historical Dictionary of Democratic Republic of Congo, The Scarecrow Press].
