Lualaba is one of the 26 provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Specified under Article 2 of the country's 2006 Constitution, Lualaba Province was finally created in 2015 from Lualaba District, Kolwezi District and the independently administered city of Kolwezi, all previously part of the pre-2015 Katanga Province. Its capital is Kolwezi.
Lualaba Province was separated from Katanga Province on 30 June 1963. Then, on 24 Apr 1966, it was united with Katanga Oriental to form Sud-Katanga Province, which was later merged back into Katanga. The President of Lualaba, from 1965 the governor, was Dominique Diur (b. 1929) who held office from 23 September 1963 until 24 April 1966.
