Kayes (Kayes)

Kayes is a small town in the Bouenza Department of the Republic of the Congo. It is located about 2 km (1.2 miles) south of Nkayi (formerly known as Jacob), the country’s fourth largest city. Kayes is also the name of a district, of which the town of Kayes is the capital .

The district of Kayes has population of 13,123 as of 2007. It is bordered to the east by the Madingou District, to the west by the Loudima District. At least 21 villages or sub-districts are located in the Kayes area, including Kayes, Dakar, Kilounga, Kimpalanga, Kimpambou, Kiossi (Kiosi), Kimbaouka (Kimbaoka), and Moutela. According to one paper on Tsetse control published in 1986, the population of the town of Kayes was around 1500 at that time.

The town lies between the south bank of the Niari River and the north bank of the Livouba River, a tributary of the Niari. The Livouba joins the Niari about 2 km northwest of Kayes. The distance between the two rivers at Kayes is around 1–2 km.

Although Kayes and Nkayi are very near each other, they are different areas, separated by the Livouba River, belonging to different municipalities. Kayes is the capital of the Kayes District, while Nkayi is an independent commune not belonging to any district, with more than five times the population of the whole Kayes District. In the past there was a district called Nkayi, which seems to have included both the present-day Nkayi Commune and Kayes District.

Nkayi station of the Congo–Ocean Railway, a narrow gauge railway connecting Brazzaville to Pointe-Noire, is in the southern part of Nkayi, roughly 3 km (2 miles) south of Kayes. There are several other places in Congo with the same or similar names, such as Madingo-Kayes in Kouilou, Londéla-Kayes in Niari, and Kimpambou-Kayes.

Country - Republic of the Congo

Flag of the Republic of the Congo
The Republic of the Congo ( République du Congo, Repubilika ya Kôngo), also known as Congo-Brazzaville, the Congo Republic or simply the Congo, is a country located in the western coast of Central Africa. It is bordered by five countries: Gabon to its west; Cameroon to its northwest and the Central African Republic to its northeast; the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the southeast and the Angolan exclave of Cabinda to its south; and the Atlantic Ocean to its southwest.

The region was dominated by Bantu-speaking tribes at least 3,000 years ago, who built trade links leading into the Congo River basin. Congo was formerly part of the French colony of Equatorial Africa. The Republic of the Congo was established on the 28th of November 1958 but gained independence from France in 1960. The sovereign state has had multi-party elections since 1992, although a democratically elected government was ousted in the 1997 Republic of the Congo Civil War, and President Denis Sassou Nguesso, who first came to power in 1979, has ruled for 33 of the past 38 years.
