Rebroadcast on the Congo w/ David Bamlango on Tanner & Moore Mon 7am CST

David Bamlango
Join cohosts Stuart Tanner and James Moore on Tanner & Moore for an indepth discussion on the Congo with David Bamlango. Bamlango, who grew up in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, is working as a lawyer for an international business firm in Chicago.

Two weeks ago, Tanner & Moore were joined by Congolese native Kabuika Kamunga for a historical discussion and background on the tragic country that has seen so much suffering.

Since 1998, an estimated 6 million Congolese have lost their lives due to war, hunger and illness. 6 million--never mind the brutal legacy of King Leopold's Imperial reign of terror, Belgian colonialization, and the Western-backed rule of Mobutu.

Is the lack of international outrage due to a lack of coverage on the admittedly complex situation? What can you do about it? Tune in and decide for yourself. 2 recent articles on the Congo:
