The Congo Crisis (French: Crise congolaise) was a period of political upheaval and conflict in the Republic of the Congo (today the Democratic Republic of the Congo) between and The crisis began almost immediately after the Congo became independent from Belgium and ended, unofficially, with the entire country under the rule of Joseph-Désiré Mobutu.
Colonial government continued until when Congo gained its independence. This legacy of travesties scarred the present state of Democratic Republic of the Congo, but that’s another story. Tim Butcher’s book Blood River recounts this history of modern day struggles and reads like a thriller.
