- Tanner & Moore - 20081120 - David Bamlango

David Bamlango
Join cohosts Stuart Tanner and James Moore on Tanner & Moore this Thursday November 20 at 7pm CST for a further 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:
