Les habitants du quartier Kinkole (Commune de la N’sele) accèdent difficilement à l’eau potable à la suite de l’absence de la Régie de distribution d’eau (Regideso) dans le coin. Les populations de ce quartier situé à quelques 50 km du centre-ville de Kinshasa, recourent aux ONG qui ont installé des bornes fontaines qui fournissent de l’eau potable.

La majorité de la population de Kinkole parcoure, chaque jour, de longues distances à la recherche de l’eau pour des besoins ménagers (lessive, vaisselle et autres). D’autres s’approvisionnent aux rivières de la place.
