Maniema is a province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Its capital is Kindu.

Following the 2005 Constitution (effective 18 February 2006), 25 new provinces were to be created from the 10 current provinces within 36 months (18 February 2009). As of October 2010, this had not taken place.[1] Maniema would be one of three provinces to retain its present name and boundaries (the others being Nord-Kivu and Sud-Kivu), along with the city-province of Kinshasa.
