Africa: Politics and Societies South of the Sahara

Talking Hard on the Dirt Roads of Eastern DR Congo

Posted in African Politics, DR Congo by ruben eberlein on May 5, 2009

At the moment, you can watch three unique Hard Talk programmes on the BBC’s website. For the first time in its history, Stephen Sackur takes that interview format on the road in one of the world’s most war-torn countries, the Democratic Republic of Congo. The programmes will focus on the UN’s peacekeeping efforts, the widespread rape of women in Eastern Congo and the money being funnelled from the country’s mining industry into armed groups.
