According to all the available links (including RSSSF), the two Matches of Zaire/RD Congo vs Liberia (4-2, then annulled) and vs Cameroon (1-2) were played at "Stade des Martyrs" in Kinshasa. Both of them valid for CAF Qualifiers to 1994 WC, both of them played in October '92/January '93 respectively.
But this is an evident (original - then copied) mistake, because Stade des Martyrs - see https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stade_des_Martyrs - was completed only in October '93, to be  inaugurated in September '94.
Probably the venue was "Stade du 20 Mai", the largest in the Country, at that time.

According to FIFA's match report file (though as we know these cannot always be trusted), the stadium for Zaire 1-2 Cameroon was Stade du 20 mai.

Maybe someone who has sources from those countries can give local reports. Likewise it would be good to have a local source to confirm the opening date of the stadium, instead of Wikipedia.
