On October 16, 2021, #KamoaKakula hosted an event to welcome 30 young #Congolese employees who were selected as part of its new ‘Kipaji’ management development program. #Kipaji is a Swahili word meaning brilliant or talented. The event also gave them the opportunity to meet and network with members of #KamoaKakula’s senior management, who have volunteered as mentors. #mining #local #DRC #copper
