It's interesting that you note the national motto, 'on se debrouille'. I've heard that Kinshasa is the largest French-speaking city in the world outside Paris. How much French is spoken in everyday life in the Congo, in your experience, and how much does it compare with, say, Senegalese French (which you've noted is very Gallic) or Burundi French?
