Abstract:
Ethnicity, political manipulation and the quest to have access to the rich mineral resources has been the main cause of the violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The failure of political leadership created the circumstance and significant challenges where militia groups use violence against the population as a means to pursue their parochial agenda. The assassination of Patrice Lumumba and the installation of the dictatorship government of Joseph Mobutu open the flood gate political unrest and has since left the country in a circle of wars and violence from a multitude of foreign and local groups. Successive government since then have either been overthrow through a military coup d'etat or have been part of a corrupt political class.
