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”, th...

Warlords, soldiers, and child laborers all toil over a mineral you've never even heard of. Coltan is a conflict mineral in nearly every cell phone, laptop, and electronic device. It's also tied to the deaths of over 5 million people in Congo since 1990.

The Democratic Republic of Congo is experiencing one of its most violent periods in nearly two decades, a humanitarian crisis rarely covered by the media. NBC Left Field went to the Kasai region and saw alleged evidence of crimes against thousands of Congolese people. We spoke to an ex-militia leader about what led to an uprising against the government in 2017, as well as child soldiers about why they took up arms. The United Nation warns that the humanitarian situation in the DRC is at par with Iraq, Syria, and Yemen—all while the country's president, Joseph Kabila, refused to step down after his term ended in 2016.

Quite a while has passed since I lived in The Democratic Republic of Congo, Kinshasa. Finally, I've decided to share with that experience. It's been almost nine years, but it's a part of my life nonetheless. SOCIAL MEDIA https://www.instagram.com/kamillavasilevska/
Will Kabila step down? It’s a New Year, but when it comes to politics in Democratic Republic of Congo, there’s nothing new. President Joseph Kabila has been in power since 2001. His second term in office officially ended in December 2016, but he’s still there. And promised elections never happened. Catholics in the capital Kinshasa prayed on Sunday. They want Kabila to leave…but peaceful demonstrations turned violent. At least seven people were killed and dozens arrested by security forces. So what does 2018 hold for the people of DRC?
