Rare access inside one of the world’s longest running conflicts | Witness Documentary

by News Update

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is home to Africa’s longest continuing conflict.

In this film, we followed a whistleblower and a patriotic military commander who provided a visceral, yet intimate, insight into a nation caught between foreign-backed rebels and the government of then-president Joseph Kabila, who ruled until 2019.

As the conflict resonates with both men’s lives, the film reveals the insidious legacy of colonialism, resource exploitation and wars that have created a continuing cycle of violence.

A film by Daniel McCabe

+10 millions dead because of this minerals conflicts feed by the West, Asia and Arab countries. The government should do its best to protect civilians and Congolese citizens. We pay the price for this green transition.

Its all bcoz of tribalism and ethnic hatred. Congo is like former yugoslavia. A forced mix of diff tribes that hate each other.

This documentary first aired in 2016. Daniel McAbe did a great job producing the film. May Mamadou Mustapha Ndala continue resting in peace. He is the hero in this film. Love from Kenya.

Africa should find its self despite all the evil brought to Africa by greedy west Africa will one day stand run it on affairs, take care of its own and benefits from its well, the night very dark before gold sun ☀️ will shine on Africa and its children. It’s painful now but soon it will be joyful children of God

These morons with their endless war ensure the Congo never develops and allows for neo-colonialist to plunder the country. Iron fist government is required to put Congo to realise its full potential
