Blood in the Congo.


As the African Union and Southern African Development Community bosses talk, wine and dine far away from the so called monstrous state of the “Democratic Republic of the Congo” so the killing of innocents goes on and if the events in Darfur are anything to go by then there is little real hope for the long suffering peoples of eastern Congo.  The rewards for the killers be they between the rebel group Congrès national pour la défense du peuple (CNDP), led by Laurent Nkunda, and the national Congolese army, the Forces armées de la République démocratique du Congo (FARDC)  and other various rebel factions include: colton, cassiterite, gold continues to yield blood money for profiteers.  For those that wish to learn more then visit the links on this page for: Global Witness and the International Crisis Group.  

Darfur has been drowning in blood since at least 2003 so not much hope for the Congolese people. Even in Zimbabwe the bosses of Africa failed to bring Mugabe to account there really needs to be action to impress upon these people to be more active in sorting out urgently problems relating to the continent.
