Geldof in the Congo
Permalink  
 


Anyone see this last night?  It was a very depressing evening's viewing what with that and the Channel 4 progamme on AIDS in Zambia.  With its abundant natural resources, Congo could be the wealthiest country on Earth, but we don't allow it because we like to get our minerals, oil and diamonds on the cheap.  We may still carry out our proxy wars in the Congo, but we are not as cruel as King Leopold II of Belgium, under whom some 10,000,000 (10 MILLION) Congolese were slaughtered to satisfy his desire to plunder his private estate for rubber and ivory. Don't believe me? - Google it!


The people of the Congo have had enough. Listen to this plea for help Ban'Africa.  Perhaps Sir Bob could promote this home-grown effort?  More details at: http://members.home.nl/congoleserumba/.

Congo should be having elections soon and that's a start towards changing things. I think elections will come end of July. Perhaps Sir Bob can mention the voting process, or since I haven't seen it, does he mention elections in his books?

I have since bought that video.  It has that TV show with Lita Bembo and Stukas Boys, and several songs by Trio Madjesi de Sosoliso from various TV appearances.  Having seen the whole video now, I think this latter band is actually better, if that is possible!  Have you seen any of it?
