Bandundu ProvinceBandundu – "Bandundu" is overwhelmingly associated with the province. Mightymights (talk) 10:31, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

  • Oppose. I note that the article Bandundu, referring to the city, was moved to Bandundu, Democratic Republic of the Congo to make way for this move and Bandundu was redirected to Bandundu Province. Cleaning up, it turned out that about half the links to Bandundu referred to the city, half to the province. If template transclusion links are excluded, the province and city articles have about the same number of inbound links. I made Bandundu into a disambiguation page. It should stay that way.

I do not think there is clearly a primary topic. Based on links from other articles, city and province seem to be about equal, so I prefer to leave the dab page. I support the move from Bandundu, Democratic Republic of the Congo to Bandundu (city), and may just do it. Aymatth2 (talk) 18:40, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
We can also move "Bandundu, Democratic Republic of the Congo" to "Bandundu, Bandundu". Mightymights (talk) 19:15, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
I suppose New York, New York is a precedent, but I really do not think anyone would use "Bandundu, Bandundu" as a search term. Bandundu (city) is clear. Aymatth2 (talk) 19:28, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
