National University of Zaire
The National University of Zaire (French: Université nationale du Zaïre, UNAZA) was a university in then Zaire (present-day Democratic Republic of the Congo). It was formed in 1971 by merging three universities into a centralized structure initially called the University of the Congo. In 1981 the university was split up again into three autonomous entities:
- University of Kinshasa (prior to the merger it was known as the University of Lovanium)
- University of Kisangani
- University of Lubumbashi
It was a law of August 6, 1971 (n° 71/075) that created the institution as the University of the Congo. A year later by publication of law n° 72/002 of January 12, 1972 it was renamed. In 1981 executive order n° 09/CC/81 of June 3 and law n° 25/81 of October 3 it was split up.
