One of Africa’s largest, most populated, and most generously endowed
countries, located strategically at its core, the Democratic Republic of Congo (previously Congo Free State, Belgian Congo, and Republic of Congo) has both dominated the surrounding region and been affected by it. For three decades, its position was relatively predictable, under the control of a strong (if anything, too strong) leader, Mobutu Sese Seko, who brought political stability, but also economic decline and a stultifying system of government that crushed opposition and stymied change. With his passing, after a brief flicker of hope, the situation has actually gone from bad to worse under Laurent and then Joseph Kabila who, in addition to the collapsing economic, social, and political infrastructure, had to contend with one of the bitterest wars ever fought in the Congo, one that not only pitted different ethnic groups and geographic zones against one another but drew in meddlesome and predatory neighbors.
