An image was circulated on social media with the caption that it was of the two rivers in the Democratic Republic of Congo namely Kasai and Mai-Ndombe crossing each other but would never mix at their confluence in the Kwango province.

A video published by the Georgian Journal confirms that the image of the confluence of Tetri and Shavi Aragvi rivers was misrepresented.

A video published by the Georgian Journal confirms that the image of the confluence of Tetri and Shavi Aragvi rivers was misrepresented.Upon researching the image, it was found that rivers were not from the Democratic Republic of Congo. The river Kasai, which is a tributary of the Congo, flows and joins the Mai-Ndombe lake and continues its journey with the name of 'Kwa'. However, the image in question is from the country of Georgia, which disintegrated and became an independent nation after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. At the reunion of the Black and White Aragvi rivers in Georgia, the Tetri Aragvi (“White Aragvi”) which flows from Gudauri down to the town of Pasanauri, it is joined by the Shavi Aragvi (“Black Aragvi”), before flowing south to merge with the Mtkvari River by Mtskheta. The image of these two rivers flowing together has been misrepresented as the Kasai and Mai-Ndombe.
