Hi,my name is Patrick Ventura.
I was born in Paris,and I am still fluent in French.I carry a French Euro passport.  I have spent most of my life in South Africa. I ran a successful business manufacturing and marketing Time Management systems.Times have changed and those who still believe in Time management have opted for laptops, tablets and cellphones to manage their time.As a result, I cannot rely on the reduced income generated by time management sales to live comfortably.I have tried the Security sector , but they discriminate against anyone my age (69) and even younger.
I have a code 10 drivers license + PDP and I believe I have a better chance of generating income by driving trucks in French speaking Africa.

Hi Christine

Thanks for the invitation. My name is Fai Franklin Ndi, I am a Cameroonian, based in DRC for 3 years + now, but never had an opportunity to find a forum for experts like this specific to DRC.
I working as a Regional Finance Manager (DRC, Congo B, Gabon and Madagascar) with an IT company, partnering with Airtel Across, and IBM across Africa.  Before DRC Congo, i had lived and worked in Uganda for closed to 5 years, in various different functions, 3 of which i spent as a Senior Consultant at an Accounting firm.
I am an ACCA Member since 2011, and a CPA (U) member since 2012.

I look forward to knowing and sharing experiences with more experts in DRC and also looking for more challenging career opportunities.

Thank you.

On April 1, I am moving to Kinshasa. I would like to connect with some people (expats or locals), to learn more about life in Congo. I am from the United States, and I will be teaching English for 6 months.

It is quite difficult finding information about expat life in Kinshasa. Any help would be much appreciated.

And if anyone is interested in practicing/learning English, I am interested in sharing languages. I want to improve my French!

Thanks everybody :)


We've moved to Kin in September - my spouse works for an NGO, and I am an international development consultant in between contracts. The contract I came here for has ended a bit earlier than we had anticipated, but this is par for the course, in that profession. So, we are here, but most likely, it will not be forever.

Best thing about Kinshasa is the Centre Equestre (riding center) - we go there every Sunday morning in a successful attempt to relax and keep our sanity.

If you are looking for a place to stay, we are moving out of our apartment - I've put an ad about it in the housing section.
