Episode Notes

In August 1998, a war broke out in the Democratic Republic of The Congo - barely a years after the First Congo War (or what was refereed to as the African World War 1 ) of 1996. Over 6 million people have died - massacred, and millions more displaced. And till this day, this war continues. The reality of things in the DRC is horrendous, utterly barbaric and it's well-staged. The Congo is bleeding and it’s said to be a modern-day genocide perpetuated by some world class capitalists geared towards economic and financial benefits.
