Grandfather Malo Ndimba Mobutu governed the country with an iron grip from 1965 until 1997, when he left as rebels under Laurent Kabila moved on Kinshasa.

Critics accused the former president of being a cruel and unscrupulous leader who suppressed internal dissent and looted the nation’s mineral resources until he passed away at age 66, barely months after he was banished.

The current unrest in the mineral-rich country is a result of his autocratic reign, according to Filip Reyntjens, an expert on the Great Lakes region of Africa, who spoke to newsmen.

He claimed that since the early 1970s, the country had been destroyed to the point where it could no longer fulfill its basic obligations.
