Transcript of Democratic Republic of Congo

(DRC) Democratic Republic of Congo
(DRC) Democratic Republic of Congo is located in west-central Africa, is bordered by the Central African Republic, the Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Zambia, Angola, and the Atlantic Ocean. It is one-quarter the size of the U.S. The capital of this country is Kinshasa. In DRC speaks over 242 languages, but the main language that is spoken is linguala and French. French is the official language of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is meant to be an ethnically neutral language, to ease communication among the many different ethnic groups of the Congo. Lingala was made the official language of the colonial army, the “Force Publique” under Belgian colonial rule. But since the recent rebellions, a good part of the army in the East also uses Swahili where it is prevalent. Basically about over 24million people speak French as the first or second Language.
Democratic Republic of Congo
Currently the president of the country is Joseph Kabila since 2001. Joseph Kabila Congolese political leader, eldest son of Laurent Kabila. He was educated in Tanzania while his father was in exile there, and after the father became president of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, he received military training in Rwanda and China. Returning home (1998), he was appointed general, named head of Congo's armed forces, and became president (2001) after his father's murder. He quickly reinstated political parties and promised democratic and economic reforms, and made a series of efforts to end the raging civil war. In 2002 Kabila signed a peace agreement with the rebels, but fighting continued.

The ‘good’ relations between the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and USA attest to the
old adage that in politics there is no permanent friend or enemy. Though we have not heard much from the two parties, it is clear that they have decided to bury the hatchet and fight towards ending potential threats and Trade between the two countries.
Education in the DRC
The education in the Democratic Republic Democratic of Congo is among the most sectors affected by the 32 years crisis faced by the country. From the 1960s until the early 2000s and now , the Congolese public education is not free. For a child to attend school they have to pay a least $15 and up every month. If don't pay then you don't go to school it doesn't matter what grade level you in, also the more days you miss school you will maintain in that grade level until you pay. Sometimes students have to start work early so they may afford some money and be able to attend school.
The first war began in 1996 in the DRC, largely between a Rwandan political faction and the existing Congolese regime. The Congolese regime fell in 1997, at which point additional African nations entered what would become the largest war in the history of Africa. In the ensuing years, the wealth of Congo’s mining potential shifted the fight from an ethnic, largely political struggle, to one centered on capturing control of the DRC’s massive natural resources.
Curently right now there is no War going on in the DRC.
The DRC has a Democratic Government, but it has an presidential Republic
The DRC has beautiful Resorts. There location and price is very affordable. since the Congo is surrounded mostly by water there resorts are usually around water away from very hot places so the guest may be comfortable. There hotels are very nice they make it so people may feel comfortable and not home sick while away from home.
What I like about my country is one my parents are from there. Also they have beautiful weather its never to cold or hot just the right temperature, they also have good taste in food and clothes, last but not least they have a lot of visiting sites as a guest in the country just by looking at the pictures and stories my parents tell me you won't miss home. The thing I don't like about the country is they have less jobs and not a free education. I feel that kids are missing out of their learning and if they graduate from high school its hard for them to get jobs in the field they want. Basically there economic is not yet improve yet.
somethings the tourists can do while visiting this country is go to the Kahuzi Biega National Park which is the zoo,
visit the NYIRAGONGO VOLCANO in Goma
try some Local Food - Fried Tilapia and Cassava
Go hiking the tallest mountains in the village
Popular music in the DRC are
RUMBA which is Congo R&B and gospel

Some food that are exported from the country to the USA are diamonds, silver, Gold,all kinds of mineral, and sometimes food.
In DRC they use 3 different types of money. they are french money which is ero, USA dollars, and their own money. But since the USA money is more popular and valuable people would take their money that they have to the bank and exchange from ero to American dollars. USA money can help them buy more valuable and amount of things they want.
