John numbi, 4-star general, lived in the house on Avenue des Orangers. He settled in this villa on his arrival in Kinshasa in 1997 following the takeover of the Alliance of Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Congo (AFDL).

John Numbi has since been declared a deserter by the army and is wanted by the courts.
