Haut-Lomami (French for "Upper Lomami") is one of the 21 new provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo created in the 2015 repartitioning. Haut-Lomami, Haut-Katanga, Lualaba, and Tanganyika provinces are the result of the dismemberment of the former Katanga province.[2] Haut-Lomami was formed from the Haut-Lomami district whose town of Kamina was elevated to capital city of the new province.[3]
