Documentary: Risking it all – Congo (Video)
Things are hopping at the road terminus in Lubumbashi in the Congo. Traders throng around the only available transport; hoping to get a lift to sell their goods in the town of Bukama.
Eugene is one of the few truckers willing to risk the notorious road.
We follow Congolese lorry drivers who must navigate their trucks, laden with goods and passengers, through jungle floods where a journey of a few hundred miles takes a month.
