‘Western Interference’, Stolen Mineral Wealth Drive Violence in Congo

Twenty-three people have recently been killed in clashes between ethnic groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s mineral-rich east, according to the country’s officials.

Kambale Musavuli, one of the country's leading political and cultural voices, told Radio Sputnik that the violence is being driven by competition for minerals and resources, which are being snatched by Western powers in order to manufacture our beloved tech.

?"We have a political crisis at the moment. Many Americans do not know that minerals, like cobalt, used to make their technological devices, cell phone batteries and cars, predominantly come from Congo. In fact, Congo is the number one producer of cobalt in the world today," Musavuli, who is the national spokesman for The Friends of the Congo, told Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear.
