• Hunting For A Rare Congolese Weed Strain With “The Kings of Cannabis”: VICE on HBO, Full Episode

    Over the past 20 years, Franco Loja and Arjan Roskam, known as the "Kings of Cannabis," have made millions of dollars scouring the world for unique strains of weed to breed and then sell. Now, they've turned their sights on Equatorial Africa, specifically the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as their next gold mine — and a way to revolutionize the cannabis industry. "Equatorial Africa is one the best preserved because of the wars, the lack of infrastructure, political unrest. All these situations created isolation there," Loja explained. "So that's where we're going." Loja and Roskam built their global powerhouse on inbred strains of cannabis called "landraces" that they've collected from all over the world — Argentina, Australia, and Brazil, just to name a few spots. Without these str...

  • Western Diplomats Pressure Congo's Kabila to End Election Law Standoff [UPDATE]

    Officials said, Western diplomats met Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila on Saturday in a bid to persuade him to drop plans for amending the country's electoral law, after the measure drew violent protests earlier this week. Under Kabila's proposed law, a national census would have to be completed before the next presidential elections, expected in 2016. The government argues a census is long overdue and would allow better management of the country. But the opposition says the new bill is a ploy to keep Kabila, 43, in power beyond the end of his mandate in 2016, as a census would take years to complete in an impoverished country the size of Western Europe. Kabila's proposed bill has angered people across the country. He has been in power since 2001, when he took from his ...

    The Republic of the Congo is my paternal country of origin; it is a country with potentials of becoming a First World country in a couple of decades, unfortunately there is a lot of bad governance and corruption in the country. This situation brings the majority of the citizens in poverty, especially when you have a 52 % unemployment and 70% of the population lives off less than $2 a day. Between the 1960s and the early 1980s, the Congolese enjoyed a comfortable standard of living to a point where students did not even have to pay to study at any University. Students were even receiving grants from the government and the infrastructure was wonderful, but at the beginning of the 1990s things began to worsen, while the country was on the way to its first democratization process.

  • Law Calling for Census Before 2016 Congo Vote Clears First Hurdle

    Lawmakers loyal to Congolese President Joseph Kabila gave initial backing on Monday to a bill requiring a national census before a 2016 election. That overcomes protests by opposition legislators who said the move would delay the vote by years. By law, Kabila will not be able to stand for re-election next year and critics say the census is a strategy to prolong his time in office while avoiding the potentially tricky issue of constitutional change. The mineral-rich Democratic Republic of Congo has about 65 million people spread across a nation as big as western Europe, with little infrastructure and difficult communications, making any count of people highly difficult. The government says the census can be completed within a year and that it is required for fair and transparent elections. ...

This situation brings the majority of the citizens in poverty, especially when you have a 52 % unemployment and 70% of the population lives off less than $2 a day. Between the 1960s and the early 1980s, the Congolese enjoyed a comfortable standard of living to a point where students did not even have to pay to study at any University. Students were even receiving grants from the government and the infrastructure was wonderful, but at the beginning of the 1990s things began to worsen, while the country was on the way to its first democratization process. The first and only democratically elected president, since the independence was elected from 1992-1997. During that time, Congo witnessed two civil wars. To make matters worse, the Marxist government in power is collaborating with Middle Eastern countries that sponsor terrorism: Countries like Turkey, Qatar, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and other terrorist countries, that means more mosque building across the country. When there are more mosques, there is a greater chance of radicalization, home grown terrorism, Islamism and the implementation of Sharia Law. Congo had 1,5 % Muslims, now it is about 15 %. Congo has natural resources like : Oil, gas, zinc, diamonds, gold, silver and many other unknown resources, but the revenues go the the wrong hands. I have also included other places where my origins go beyond the Congo and the Democratic Republic of Congo; I have also included countries like: Portugal, Angola and Hungary on this video where I demonstrated that I do not want Islam to grow there also. I also do not want Islam to grow in my country of birth, France. Congo is not a Muslim country; it is a secular country with a Christian identity and way of life and no Muslim has the right to destroy that identity. It is also about time that the Congolese society stops blaming former colonial powers for its failures, now it all about taking responsibility and change mindsets. There were many injustices during the colonial period, I not ignoring it, and I know those injustices were wrong,but now it is all about taking responsibility and stop shifting the blame to former settlers.

Lawmakers loyal to Congolese President Joseph Kabila gave initial backing on Monday to a bill requiring a national census before a 2016 election. That overcomes protests by opposition legislators who said the move would delay the vote by years. By law, Kabila will not be able to stand for re-election next year and critics say the census is a strategy to prolong his time in office while avoiding the potentially tricky issue of constitutional change. The mineral-rich Democratic Republic of Congo has about 65 million people spread across a nation as big as western Europe, with little infrastructure and difficult communications, making any count of people highly difficult. The government says the census can be completed within a year and that it is required for fair and transparent elections. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/tAPyifyDgwA/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

Congo minister declines to say whether new mining code signed into law CAPE TOWN (Reuters) - The Minister of Mines for Democratic Republic of Congo, Martin Kabwelulu, declined on Wednesday to say whether President Joseph Kabila had signed a new mining code into law that the industry opposes because it will raise royalties and taxes. The new code, which parliament approved late last month, could see royalties on cobalt, a vital component in electric car batteries, increase five-fold to 10 percent. It also removes a stability clause in the current law protecting mine...
