The Democratic Republic of the Congo is rich in natural resources, yet the average citizen lives on only 72 cents a day. The foreign mining companies are getting rich while the general population is living in poverty. Many Congolese citizens are diging through the dirt on their hands and knees in search their fair share of the countries natural minerals. While there are taxes on the mining companies who benefit from the countries resources it is proving difficult to actually collect the money that is owed. Vocativ spoke to one tax inspector who explained that tax evasion and government fraud is rampant throughout the mining industry. So it seems that until those benefiting from the countries natural wealth start paying their fare share, many average citizens will have to continue digging through the mud to get by.

Trillions of dollars and yet these leaders in these countries are able to trick outsiders and hide the money without a single person knowing where that money is. Something sounds fishy. And the individuals interviewed speak perfect English when conga was a Belgium colony. Again very fishy. Resources that are sold in dollars or euros and most likely end up in western banks cause most African countries don't have stable currency or banks to park that money (which is in the trillions by the way) without a single individual willing to follow the money but point fingers at African leaders being corrupt. The whole world smells like fish now. Two countries that have resources in the trillions ( Saudi Arabia and congo) both with "dictator regime" and one we can see what they do with their wealth and one we say is corrupt but yet give no explanation as to where exactly that wealth is. Follow the money of these countries leaders and it always leads a trail right straight to the doorstep of western banks. Most people know well enough if these leaders parked their money at Chinese banks I can guarantee you 110% most western leaders would be so procise as to naming the exact banks and owners of those banks that African leaders would have their money parked at. We all know the reason why these stories always portray African leaders as irresponsible and greedy but never get the full story nor following of the money to see exactly where it's parked at!!!!
khadafi was the only african leader who we hoped would change Africa and the westerners took him out cause he was a threat. Why isn't kablila being attacked by the us for human abuse (i guess he's no threat and is a puppet
With a stroke of a pen, 3/4 of DRC issues can be sorted. Imagine sanctioning a list of companies believed to be engaged in corruption, from trading with the US and EU. So if a company mines raw materials for electronic devices, it is stopped from selling anything to the US and EU and if say samsung or apple uses parts from that manufacturer it too is closed off from the Western market. Suddenly it becomes cheaper to pay taxes in congo than get sanctioned. But it's not in the West's interest to have a stable DRC.
Karma does this thing
God is the creator not the white
The people vote didactor president
Not the European
So wake up and
let lumumba died for mobuto run the country
Lumumba was loyal to his people but the people not
Many migrants escaping to EU are from these areas...
International foreign business corruption along with internal political corruption leads people to escape for a dream on living somewhere else...
Think about where the source of why these migrants come to EU and try to make differences for them to stay home, which they would prefer...
With Peace Sakinah 🌹
I like how many blame Africa and don't want Africans blaming the west....and don't want refuges.. Let me ask you this ...why don't your armies and secret services stop coming to our countries... Where is saddam, ghadaffi, Lumumba, Compaore? Who killed them ? Why is france still taxing africa?
what can you do when u have kids and u need to feed them. When u try to fight the government they point a gun at you. Fight corruption as your kids starve. Or struggle to find every little to feed your kids as corruption increases.
There's also a congolese saying "mutu abatami aleki yo na mayele" the person that's hidden, he's more intelligent then you 😉
Treat me any how but give us few years and you'll understand this génération's plan...
Undercover brother man.
Good day to you.
"don't wanna reveal our plans" there are no plans if you can't even explain a thing or understand how a country can grow xD there is this Dutch saying "iemand blij maken met een dode mus" Pretty much means making somebody happy with a dead sparrow. That's what you're doing telling lies making people happy for something that isn't good or won't even happen. Normally people do that to others but you managed to believe yourself.
There is a way to end this child and adult slavery: get US and UK to say the wage is wrong, or just say every person should forever get a GUARANTEED RESIDUAL INCOME. Corporations are like a beast that has one body, and the 7 richest ones have seven heads on long necks: they're all connected financially in the body. Same for governments, but a another beast, seven richest governments. No individual can ever win a battle against them. But if people worldwide become united together, then we become much more powerful, and then we have a chance of winning, and ending world poverty quickly, because billions of people are starving to death. Just think of feeding children, nothing else. Everyone please fast for 2-3 days so you can feel what it's like to be starving.
I blame African leaders. I won't blame the West for taking advantage of the stupidity and evilness of these people. If you are willing to starve your own people, in order to drive some Mercedes or BMW, you are the primary responsible for the conditions of your country.
The problem is 2fold. Africa is fucked due to how it is arranged. The brits and other colonialists did a fine job of grouping diffrent ethnic groups in one country so wars and conflicts will never end in africa until borders are redrawn by ethnic and relegious lines. The second peoblem is corruption. There is corruption is other countries as well but nowhere to the extent there is in african countries. Until those issues are solved there is no way africa could become succesful
What do people not understand? Blacks are incapable of running a country ( very low IQ) Take a minute and look at Africa, poverty, over breading, corruption on a grand scale............ The blacks are dragging Africa back into the dark ages. Look what is happening to South Africa, thank you ANC, Jacob Zuma (just to name one), biggest criminal alive! And NO I'm not being racist, its fact.
The problem is that the people at the bottom are too dumb to rise against their oppressors.. they can’t read or write or share information so they will stay dumb — this their life and harsh reality, it’s sad but they don’t matter ... it’s like the people in the ghetto rising up against Wall Street, where would they start? Sorry but some African people will always be poor and backwards and dumb. It’s just how it is.
i don't blame the president of congo. the moment he starts to work for his people and country the western powers will replace him with another puppet just like what happend to gaddafi. africas problem is whites man hunger for for natural resources!
I was talking to a guy from an African country he said even though he is struggling he would be stealing his country's wealth given the opportunity as his leaders are doing so good luck to them they surely need it
The Bantu/African people has never had any developed countries or any other region of the world as equal partner, except Africa. It is a treatment of master and servant. And part of that problem is our rogues, saboteur and despicable rulers.
With the right leadership, Congo can be one of the wealthiest countries in the world. They could even help some struggling African countries. The country has so much potential. I hope the Congolese wake up and put the right puzzles together for their country development. Congo is a sleeping giant that is yawning for the right leadership.
Exactly but sadly the right leaders are just not there
A leader should be prioritizing the needs of the population before his own and most importantly not condoning any corruption whatsoever but it seems they all seem to go the opposite direction its truly sad..
Yup, The kings of Kongo started trading slaves to Portugal in the late 1490s under Joao I/ Manikongo Nzinga a Nkuwu. His son, King Afonso I even signed an agreement with Portugal, The Regimento,1512, to PROVIDE captives to Portugal--granted that didn't stop the traders from capturing the 'wrong people' (children of nobles). They even complained about the 'illegal' trade in 1520s. (its actually a pretty interesting story)
I didn't even watch the video because I know it will again be white bashing and very probably China cheering. I just want to point out that China will be unlivible in 2050. And today China is buying Africa....Just saying.

African leaders let these rubbish to happened they even conspired with the colonial masters to steal their countries wealth n transferring them to slave masters land while their citizens are in pain crying for help when they kicked the bucket their families day's to poverty are numbered because their wives n children do not have any clues about the countries were the wealth's are hidden they preferred in boosting the economy of the slave masters instead of Investing in their countries create good jobs for the citizens, good hospitals, research centre's for traditional medicine, good Roads, invest in technology , encouraging practical creations not cramming a whole book to pass the exams but u have know ideas of Appling ur readings, good school 's recreational center for elderly people n also children's, electricity twenty four hours to boost the economy of the countries, pay the worker's by hourly rate not salaries that will make them to sit up u work u got paid but if u don't show up at work u loss ,what colonial masters have in mind is cheap labors and the mineral resources they don't care about who survived or dies they brought u fake religion's, fake war's in Africa, brainwashed, miseducation's, bamboozled the innocent soul's in the name of God which means gun, oil n drug's Africans are possessed with white Jesus n Mary the mother which's nothing but Cesar Borgia image now called Jesus Christ the more u look the less u see some Africans are still paying reparations to colonial masters government they robbed and enslaved our people even some African leaders encourages their citizens to take prilgramages to take prilgramages to Mecca, Rome "Vatican " or holy land Israel God is every where not in Mecca, Rome or Israel these three organized religion's were involved in slave trades n exploitation's of the people yet the recycled leaders with dead brains cells does not see the manipulation's by the colonial masters shame, shame to the modern school graduates who managed to join the army they called themselves leaders they are nothing but puppets to the puppet masters they cannot delivered on their promises to their citizens they're only good in accumulating unnecessary title's to bully their neighbors. African's ur leaders are ur problems.
It's not just africans guys it's all of us now. It's coming slowly but surely to the west and other countries as well. Few on top control the world and the masses are just there to be used at will. Wake up people
