  • 這是剛果(金)最近的火車災難,缺乏足夠的交通工具。
  • 國家鐵路公司工會負責人對記者說:“在這次出軌中喪生的人都是偷竊者。SNCC不可能提供任何通行費。”
  • 貨運列車出軌在剛果(金)中很常見,因為這是最可用的交通工具,因此很多人都在使用它們。

剛果民主共和國坦any尼喀地區Mayibaridi附近的火車出軌導致事故 至少有50人死亡 其他幾人受傷 事故發生在星期四清晨。

Tanganyika is one of the 26 provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Its capital is Kalemie.  The new province’s territory corresponds to the historic Nord-Katanga province that existed in the early period of post-colonial Democratic Republic of the Congo between 1962 and 1966.

This is the latest train disaster in the DRC, a vast country in Sub-Saharan Africa without sufficient means of transportation. The official provisional record could be even higher, according to various eyewitnesses. Congo’s minister for humanitarian action, Steve Mbikayi, confirmed the bad news via Twitter. He tweeted, “Derailment at 3 AM in Tanganyika near Mayibaridi. Provisional toll: 50 dead and several wounded!”

The freight train was on its way from Nyunzu, heading to Niemba, when its two carriages fell on their sides, said Victor Umba, union head of the national rail company SNCC. “Those who died in this derailment were stowaways. It is impossible for the SNCC to provide any kind of toll,” Mr. Umba told journalists. Umba also pointed out that the SNCC’s chief was in Kalemie, the local provincial capital, in a bid to find a way to raise the fallen carriages. “It seems that many stowaways are trapped under the derailed carriages,” he stated.

Witnesses who spoke to journalists pointed out that there is a possibility that hundreds of deaths will be reported after the whole search for the missing persons process is completed, since the chances are high that many victims are stuck under the derailed carriages. Freight train derailments are common in the DRC, where they are used by many people as they are the most available means of transport.

剛果國家鐵路公司(SNCC)是剛果民主共和國內陸鐵路的國家鐵路公司。 由於內戰,這條鐵路從1998年開始運作,直到29年2004月XNUMX日。儘管得到了外國的支持,SNCC幾乎已經崩潰了XNUMX年。

Like many public corporations in the DRC, the national railway company of Congo (SNCC) is on the brink of bankruptcy. Its former executive director, Sylvestre Ilunga, is the current Prime Minister of the coalition government of President Félix Tshisekedi’s forces, and his predecessor, Joseph Kabila. DRC railways are well known for their poor safety record, with their many old and mechanically faulty trains, many of them having been assembled in the 1960s and poorly maintained.

迄今為止,該國已發生許多火車事故。 例如,在三月, 至少有24人喪生, and 31 sustained serious injuries when a freight train ferrying illegal passengers crashed in Kasai, in the nation’s central region. Also, 10 stowaways lost their lives and 24 sustained serious injuries in November 2018 near Samba, the DRC’s eastern town, when a freight train’s brakes failed. Whereas in November 2017, in the country’s southern Lualaba province, 35人喪生 之後,一輛載有13艘油輪的貨運火車跌入谷底。

News reporting is my thing. My view of what is happening in our world is colored by my love of history and how the past influences events taking place in the present time.  I like reading politics and writing articles. It was said by Geoffrey C. Ward, "Journalism is merely history's first draft." Everyone who writes about what is happening today is indeed, writing a small part of our history.
