President Joseph Kabila arrived in Bukavu on Monday morning and went straight from Kavumu airport to the bedsides of the victims of Friday night oil tanker explosion in Sange, who had been transferred to hospitals in the capital of South Kivu province.

President Kabila later went to the scene of the accident in Sange to pay respect to those who lost their lives and comfort victims and residents still in shock after this horrible tragedy.

A government delegation of six ministers and the governor of South Kivu province preceded president Kabila in Sange.

The government has sent medical aid and additional health practitioners to the region from Kinshasa to help care for the burn victims. Hospitals in the region have also received help from local residents and organizations such as the Red Cross, the World Health Organization and the United Nations mission in the DRC.
