Accept Greetings from Prince Franklin of the Lendu Kingdom , A village located around Mongbwalu Community. Mongbwalu is a small town in the Djugu Territory of the Ituri Province in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Mongbwalu lies within the Kilo-Moto region and has long been a center of gold mining, with three nearby underground industrial mines: Adidi, Senzere and Makala. As of 2008 the town had a population of about 50,000, mostly Banyali and Lendu, but with people from many other ethnic groups who have been attracted by the gold mining opportunities. Around 25,000 to 30,000 men, women and children in the region around Mongbwalu were engaged in gold mining, transport and processing. Much of the gold extracted in Mongbwalu is traded across the border to Uganda.
