Tanganyika Province

Tanganyika is one of the 21 new provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo created in the 2015 repartitioning. Tanganyika, Haut-Katanga, Haut-Lomami and Lualaba provinces are the result of the splitting up of the former Katanga province.[1] Tanganyika was formed from the Tanganyika district whose town of Kalemie was elevated to capital city of the new province.
