Yomobo Vituka is included within a quadrant of about 5 Â 5 k, containing a wide variety of functions and morphologies, regular and irregular, a train station for commercial exchanges between the city and the region, and a large unbuilt strip occupied by the presence of the railroad between Yombo and Tandika.
