  • 🇨🇩 How bad is DR Congo's humanitarian crisis? | Inside Story

    How bad is the humanitarian crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo? | Inside Story 'A humanitarian disaster of extraordinary proportions.' That's how the UN described what's happening in the Democratic Republic of Congo last month. The country has been at war for much of the past 25 years, including recent political instability after President Joseph Kabila stayed in power beyond his mandated two-terms in office. Now, as the UN plans to hold a donor conference in Switzerland to help raise nearly two billion dollars, Congolese officials say they will not attend, accusing the agency of exaggerating the problem. So, how serious is the political and humanitarian crisis in the DRC? Presenter: Sami Zeidan Guests: Claude Mashala - National Executive Secretary of the Ruling Part...

Watch more https://rtd.rt.com/tags/illegal-mining/ The Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa is one of the world’s most resource-rich countries. A wide range of rare minerals can be found here in abundance, all commanding high prices in world commodity markets. Diamonds for jewellery, tantalum, tungsten and gold for electronics; uranium used in power generation and weaponry and many others. Congo has copious deposits of raw materials that are in high demand internationally but remains one of the poorest countries in the world. From colonisation, with the horrors of slavery and other atrocities, to a turbulent and equally brutal present in which militant groups control the mines, Congo’s richness in natural resources has brought nothing but misery. Referred to as “conflict minerals”, these riches leave only a trail of death, destruction and poverty. Under Belgian rule, Congolese labourers were often required to meet quotas when mining different minerals. Failure could mean punishment by having a hand cut off with a machete. The country gained independence in 1960, but that didn’t put a stop to slave and child labour or to crimes being committed to extract and exploit the minerals. Warring militant fractions from inside the country and beyond seized control of mines for their own benefit while terrorising local populations. For our translator, Bernard Kalume Buleri, his country’s history of turmoil is very personal; like most Congolese people, he and his family fell victim to the unending mineral based power struggle. Born in the year of his country’s independence, he has lived through war and seen his homeland torn apart by violent looting and greed. His story is a damning testament, illustrating how nature’s bounty, instead of being a blessing, becomes a deadly curse.

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is the 2nd largest country in Africa and 11th largest in the world. At 2,344,858 square kilometers, the DRC covers a land area larger than the combined territories of Spain, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Lithuania. 2. With a population of over 80 million, the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the 4th most-populated nation in Africa and the 18th most populated country in the world. The people represent over 200 ethnic groups, with nearly 250 languages and dialects spoken throughout the country. Kinshasa, the capital, is the largest French-speaking city in the world. 3. Despite being a poor and conflict-ridden country, the DRC boasts a space program. Privately financed by the Développement Tous Azimuts (DTA), with significant government support, the Troposphere rockets are expected to send cargo to outer space in the near future. 4. Kinshasa and Brazzaville in the next-door Republic of Congo are the closest capital cities in the world (with the exception of Vatican City and Rome). A bridge across the Congo River still needs to be constructed to connect the two political centers. 5. The great apes, such as the bonobos and the eastern lowland gorillas, can be found only in Congo. Along with the common chimpanzee, the bonobo is the closest extant relative to humans. 6. The DRC used to have a very strange form of currency, called the Katanga cross. The metal is made of copper and is shaped in the form of an X. The Katanga cross underwent a change of value from being owned by tribal chiefs, who used them for large transactions or rituals, to a more widespread use for purchasing perishable goods, although its main use was to bind marriages. 7. The DRC is among the most resource-rich countries on the planet, yet it continues to have an extremely poor population. Tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold have been dubbed “conflict minerals.” Armed groups use the profits from sales for campaigns of violence.

The UN is directing blame towards government leaders in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) for political tensions, which led to riots and deaths in the capital Kinshasa. Opponents of President Joseph Kabila believe he is laying the groundwork to delay elections due later this year to try and remain in power beyond his two-term mandate. On a continent where leaders are known for changing laws and constitutions to stay in power, does the world have the will to pull DRC back from the brink?

In which John Green teaches you about the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which used to be Zaire, which used to be The Belgian Congo, which used to be the Congo Free State, which used to be the region surrounding the Congo River Basin in central Africa. So the history of this place is a little convoluted. The history of Congo is central to the history of central Africa, and the Congo Wars embroiled neighboring countries like Uganda and Rwanda. John will talk you through the history of Congo and the region.

Subscribe to France 24 now : http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN Nearly 15 years after the deadly eruption of the Nyiragongo volcano and four years after the M23 rebel offensive, Goma is still tending its wounds. Amid uneven reconstruction efforts, the stability of the largest city in eastern DR Congo remains fragile. Mehdi Meddeb and Maxime Souville report. The volcanoes are one side, Lake Kivu on the other. Today sees a fragile peace, while yesterday bore witness to war and insurgencies. Goma, it seems, is used to extremes. Bustling with construction work, the capital of North Kivu province, in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), is a city living on the edge. Goma faces multiple threats: an active volcano, a potential gas explosion under Lake Kivu, ethnic conflicts and political tensions. Moreover, with President Kabila’s mandate due to officially expire on Monday December 19, there is concern for the future. Goma remains calm but tense. The city seems desperate to cling to peace, after so many years of insurgencies, forced exoduses, cholera epidemics and refugee influxes, which have all profoundly destabilised a region of strategic importance for Africa’s Great Lakes.

Jeshi la Ulinzi wa Wananchi wa Tanzania limesema kikundi chake cha ulinzi na usalama kilichopo DRC kwaajili ya kutekeleza jukumu la ulinzi na amani kilivamiwa na Waasi waliojilikana kuwa ni ADF na kusababisha mauaji kwa wanajeshi 14. Amesema kwamba tukio hilo lilitokea katika eneo la kambi iliyopo daraja kwenye mto Simulike barabara ya kutokea Oicha kwenda Kamango mpakani mwa nchi ya Uganda Kaskazini Mashariki ya wilaya ya Beni Jimbo la Kivu Kaskazini. Akithibitisha mauaji hayo muwakilishi wa Mkuu wa Majeshi ya Ulinzi na Usalama Tanzania (CDF) Luteni Jenerali James Mwakibolwa amesema shambulio hilo lakuvamiwa lilizusha mapigano baina ya kikundi hicho na kile cha waasi na yalidumu kwa takribani masaa kumi na tatu (13) na kusababisha vifo vya askari wa Tanzania 14 na wengine 44 kujeruhiwa na askari wawili bado hawajulikani walipo ambapo jitihada zaidi za kuwatafuta zinaendelea. Amesema shambulizi la tarehe 7 kuamkia tarehe 8 Desemba lilikua baya zaidi kuwahi kuitokea tangu vikosi hivyo vianze kushiriki ulinzi wa amani nchini DRC mwaka 2011 kwakua limeleta madhara makubwa, hata hivyo kikundi hicho ambacho bado kipo huko kinauwezo mkubwa wa kutekeleza majukumu husika kwa uhodari wa hali ya juu ,ushupavu, weledi mkubwa na umahiri stahiki. Kwa niaba ya mkuu wa majeshi Luteni Jenerali Mwakibolwa amewathibitishia watanzania kuwa tukio hilo halitawavunja moyo na kamwe Jeshi la Ulinzi la Wananchi wa Tanzania halitatetereka kupeperusha bendera yake ndani na nje ya nchi kwani tukio hilo limewaongezea nguvu, ari ,ushupavu na uhodari zaidi katika kutekeleza majukumu yake. Aidha amesema nchi pia iko salama na itaendelea kuwa salama na yeyote ambaye anataka kuwajaribu atashughulikiwa ipasavyo kwani historia ya jeshi inadhihirisha uwezo thabiti. Kuhusu taratibu za kusafirisha miili ya marehemu kuirejesha nchini zinafanyika chini ya utaratibu wa Serikali na umoja wa mataifa na JWTZ na serikali wanaendelea kuchukua hatua stahiki kufuatia tukio hilo ikiwemo kufanya uchunguzi katika eneo husika sambamba na kuangalia taratibu za kuwajulisha familia za wafiwa zimekamilika na ndio maana hawakuweza kutoa taarifa hizo bila kuwaweka sawa familia za mashujaa hao. Kwa umoja wa watanzania amewataka kuwaombea dua roho za mashujaa hao zipumzike mahali pema peponi kwa amani na majeruhi wote wapone haraka iwezekanavyo ili warejee kutekeleza majukumu yao ya kila siku kwa ulinzi wa taifa na dunia nzima.

The Democratic Republic of Congo was expected to welcome a new president last year, but with elections delayed, President Joseph Kabila remains in office past the two-term limit enshrined in the constitution. Martin Fayulu, pictured with severe swelling, claims it was the result of having been shot by government forces [Photo credit: Martin Fayulu] Kabila has promised that elections will be held by the end of this year. So, will the country finally be restored to full democratic rule, or could he attempt to remain in power? For Martin Fayulu, an opposition politician who claims to have been shot in the head by government forces during a peaceful protest, Kabila is not willing to give up power. "Kabila knew clearly that he has to go by the end of last year. But what he did? He tried to manoeuvre not to have elections," says Fayulu, who hopes to replace Kabila. "I'm not sure that by the end of this year we’ll have that transparent and credible election." "If there is anything Kabila does not want to do, it is to stay in power for ever," says Zihindula Mulegwa, a former spokesman for Kabila. "We are involved in voter registration right now and we expect to have elections at the end of this year." In this week’s Arena, former government spokesman Zihindula Mulegwa and opposition politician Martin Fayulu debate the future of democracy in DR Congo.
