Perhaps. While French is the official language and it is certainly very much a part of life, not all Kinshasa residents are necessarily native French speakers nor do they always use French to communicate with one another. Many use Congelese languages (Kikongo, Lingala, Tshiluba or Swahili) in everyday communications.
