Lukunga is one of the four districts that make up the capital city of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).[1] It includes the communes (municipalities) of Barumbu, Gombe, Kinshasa, Kintambo, Lingwala, Mont Ngafula and Ngaliema.[2] The district takes its name from the Lukunga River.[3] This is a critical source of water for the district, compromised by silting.[4]

The national deputy for the district as of 2012 was Oscar Gema di Mageko, a member of the CDF parliamentary group.
