    where ever there are valuable natural resources, all world economies wants to get in and grab as much as possible and the politicians who mainly benefit will stash the money in a Western country like Switzerland. That what Mombutu did who got rid of Lumumba and ruled the country, stole over 40 billion dollars and stashed it abroad, leaving it with others and died of cancer.Their greed is beyond belief, the reason why arms groups are trying to ether defend their country or support another robber.
    If China is very genuine in doing trade and investing, must show their sincerity by allowing Congolese to travel to China and Hong Kong Visa free.They must create a hardworking middle class that would safeguard the interest of the country and will be knowledgeable enough to keep an eye on every one and their assets from the vultures within and vultures outside the county.
    China could help to develop the living standards of the countries they invest, being a socialist country must make sure the politicians do not steal the assets. Western countries failed the third world and the hardworking middle class are prisoners in their countries without no easy access to the rest of the world. No two bit politician in our countries ever give a thought to their people, truly selfish.This is the plight of the third world.
