The comment about Mobutu[edit]

Was obviously intended to be humorous. His 5 Billion net worth was obviously all plundered from the country he ruled with an iron fist. As was his Mercedes. That being said, an image of the guy can do no harm imho. Maybe with a different caption... 141.30.210.129 (talk) 14:16, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

What happened after the 2006 election?[edit]

Is it all peace and sunshine now? or do(es) the war(s) continue? Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 16:51, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Going by the amount of conflicts listed under "Democratic Republic of Congo" here, probably the latter. 141.134.75.236 (talk) 17:30, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Dear BoN: I'd be immensely glad if you could add (some of) that. Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 17:42, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the additions. Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 20:09, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
You're welcome. Might do some more later. ;) 141.134.75.236 (talk) 20:12, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks once more. Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 11:40, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

The Global Slavery Index's estimate of the number of slaves in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is considered important enough to be included on page 359 of The Stateman's Yearbook 2017: The Politics, Cultures, and Economies of the World. However, since that book cites an outdated version of the Global Slavery Index, I am not including it as a reference here. Ashy Waves (talk) 18:25, 19 March 2018 (UTC)
