The Luele River (called the Pio-Pio or Lié River in its lower course) runs from south to north through Idiofa Territory, Kwilu District, Democratic Republic of the Congo. The river starts as a clear stream in a small valley near Idiofa. It grows in size rapidly due to many small tributaries, among which is the Punkulu River, and then meanders through a large valley before entering the Kasai River downstream from Mangai.[1]
