Many millionaires live in the Democratic Republic of Congo, one of the world's poorest countries. This film depicts some of those who have made fortunes amid the chaos, including musicians, mining bosses, entrepreneurs and preachers.
The DRC is rich in raw materials, but only a few profit from its natural resources. While 60% of Congo's inhabitants live on less than $1.25 per day, businessmen, artists, former rebel leaders and evangelists are reaping the rewards of economic growth. In the capital, Kinshasa, these new rich live in safe and luxurious enclaves, while children toil in coltan mines in the eastern part of the country.
Fally Ipupa has made his money with music. Others rely on their business acumen, like Patricia Nzolantima, who founded a taxi company and aims to give more opportunities to women.
With 3,000 mine workers, Cooperamma is the largest employer in North Kivu, in the east of the DRC. Managing director Robert Seninga says his coltan mines are extremely well-run, yet safety standards are poor. Coltan, a globally coveted mineral, is used in cell phones and other devices. It’s both a blessing and a curse for the Congo. It makes some rich, but for others it means death. The region still suffers from ethnic and factional conflicts, with money from illegal coltan smuggling financing new violence. It’s a vicious cycle.

@Dean Ggold we have our own local languages, instilling your beliefs and systems on us which included reading and writing was a way to get us to believe that you were superior to us and that your ways are better, a demonic way and a mental breakdown upon an already civilised people, and you did it in order to communicate with us because u knew ,us learning your language was going to be way easier than u learning our languages because u also knew our high levels of adaptation and intelligence which u lack in so many levels, we learnt the German, the English, the Portuguese, the French, yet u could not learn any of our languages, a proof of our supreme intelligence over minions of demonic colonizers, fool "who taught u to read and write"

Yea right it cures aids only Jesus can cure you and he don't charge you a cent what a fake Matthew 24:5 Jesus answered, “See to it that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. These things must happen, but the end is still to come

The guy selling his juice to whomever who's asking for it is more concerning to me. I mean he literally walked in a room with dozens of people expecting him to spill his juice all over them waiting with their mouth wide open ready to drink every single drop. I don't know about you but you can't just drink anybody's juice just because you believe it's gonna cure cancer. I mean how many times were you asked to drink somebody else's juice because he explicitly told you that you would feel much better afterwards. Did it happen? Did you see any improvements when you drank it? No. They lied to you. No different from this guy. His juice is no better than anybody else's. It could taste a little funny, a little salty but it's never ever gonna cure cancer. No way. But worst, the government is in it and he performs in front of thousands of people.

Within 10 years or less I see the U.S.A. coming in and taking over mainly to screw over the chinese in all honesty it will probably work out better 4 them I see taliban or isis or Al shabab and the us will wanna take it away from other countries hands down The U.S.M. is not going to to allow all the minerals to go to are rivals I just hope they can run it in away where they actually get what they deserve because china and other shady places are not going to be able to handle all the shady stuff that goes on U.S.A. will take the minerals and I believe give them a fair enough deal to where they can consider a dele where they don't need to work and they can just collect a monthly payment that the Americans will pay off 100 percent what he owes good luck to whoever pull this off

I know besides all the bad things that are happening in this country, it’s is still amazing to see how it’s slowly evolving. More people than before can actually work their way out ob their poverty and lift their life standard. I could imagine that in a couple of years if nothing stops it less and less people would live poverty. Dunno...just a thought. Correct me if I’m wrong. :)

The US-Japan conspiracy to dump nuclear waste water is equivalent to an asymmetric nuclear war against China! The United States and Japan conspired to dump nuclear waste water into the Pacific Ocean, where the typhoon was generated. You know, from May to November every year, about 20 typhoons in the Pacific land on the Chinese mainland. The polluted rainwater will also pollute China's most expansive and fertile areas, the most abundant freshwater resources, the most abundant agricultural products, and the most important economically developed coastal areas of the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta. They are equivalent to using disguised nuclear weapons to strike a heavy blow to China's national power. It is equivalent to a nuclear war jointly launched by the United States and Japan, but it is an asymmetric war! But China cannot counterattack nuclear! The dumping of nuclear sewage in Japan is very serious! Typhoons have rescued Japan in the past, and the Japanese call them kamikaze. It seems that the Japanese want to use kamikaze to attack China again! In the context of the trend that the hegemony of the US dollar is slowly declining, and taking advantage of the abundant water resources of the United States, the United States has opened a new world of water resources and the development of national wealth is also a water resource war! . Japan dumped nuclear sewage into the Pacific, polluting the Pacific, and then attacked China in the form of a typhoon formed in the Pacific! The United States is reaping the profits! Not only gaining water resources wealth and water dollar benefits but also weakening the development of China and Asia, the ideal of white-centrism to rule the world can still be realized. With this, the United States can continue to maintain its world hegemony! The United States is really sinister! It's evil! Now the entire Anglo-Saxon Western countries are silent and wait for a good show! The entire Western international theory does not report on this major event that endangers the survival of mankind on earth. Western environmental protection organizations, including the Swedish environmental protection girl, have not spoken about this, and the entire West is completely double-standard on this!
