Kasongo is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kasongo
The territory was at the centre of the 1892-1894 war in the Eastern Congo and the Batetela Revolt in 1898. A century later, Kasongo and its inhabitants were severely affected by the Second Congo War (1998-2003), and the CARE and Concern Worldwide NGO's are active in the area.
