Abstract:

The place whence the Bobangi came to reside on the Congo banks is still a puzzle both to the people themselves and to the students of their history, but the most common opinion amongst the natives is that their forefathers came from the spit of land at the junction of the Mobangi River with the Congo, the third boundary of which was somewhere about beyond Bangala.The Bobangi language is the most important one from Stanley Pool to beyond Bangala. It is also the basis of the eclectic “trade” language used by the officers of the Congo Independent State, by traders and other travellers.
