Title is provided by EEPA staff based on photographer's notes.

"An urban sub-region in southern Katanga, Kolwezi lies on a particularly rich lode of minerals, including copper and cobalt, along the northwestern edge of the Zambian Copper Belt between Lubumbashi and Dilolo. Most of the industry in Kolwezi is related to the mining operations, including a series of hydroelectric installations outside the city and a railroad depot on the line that links Lubumbashi with the Benguela Railway." [F. Scott Bobb, 1999: Historical Dictionary of Democratic Republic of Congo, The Scarecrow Press]. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for National Geographic and traveled to Africa from January 19, 1972 to mid April 1972.

"In Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo), President Mobutu regularly appeared in public wearing a leopard-skin cap as part of his presidential regalia. While the form of the hat derives from a military cap, his choice of leopard skin was certainly calculated to exploit the symbolic association of the leopard with chiefly legitimacy and power that has a long history in many societies in this region." [Arnoldi M.J., 1995: Introduction: The Head and Hair; Crowning Achievements. UCLA Fowler Museum of Cultural History]. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for American Broadcasting Company and traveled to Africa from early December 1966 to early February 1967.
