About Me

My name is Mwali Kabongo. I am a Congolese national by birth. I was born in Kipushi. Kipushi is a town in hot Haut-katanga province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It lies 35 km southwest of the city of lubumbashi, very near to the border with Zambia.
I went to primary School Dilungu 2 in 1978, then terminated my school earlier than i was supposed to finish .
I started my business in 1990 during the time of president kabila, had some successful and wonderful business, but at some point failed to run because of the wars we could experience.
In 1997 i shifted to zambia where i got married i started business again and now i run shop clothing i buy from congo to bring into zambia.
