• DR Congo's traders decry rising inflation

    Since February, the Democratic Republic of Congo's currency, the franc; has slid severally after years of a remarkable stability of around 920-930 CFA to the US dollar. Some currency dealers in the street of Lukusa, in the north of the capital Kinshasa, said the decline began in late 2015. Some financial institutions exchange a dollar for 977 Congolese francs while other business people exchange at the rate of 980 francs for a dollar.

Due to the war in the CAR, we were forced to complete the 1,734 km section from Kissangani to Kinshasa on a Barge. During this period the GoPro cameras were used to their full potential, doing time lapse filming and allowing me access to angles that were simply not possible with our 'standard' cameras. Especially getting footage of the Pirogue traders.

  • Consumer prices climb as Congolese franc weakens

    Congolese traders are worried after the Franc begun to weaken significantly against the dollar since February this year. Traders say that majority of the products sold in the country are imported forcing them to increase prices, a tough feat for a population that is largely poor. The IMF says that economic growth in the country, which is a top producer of copper and cobalt globally, reached an average of 7.7% per year between 2010 and 2015. It has however strongly slowed down in 2015, hit by falling commodity prices, greatly reducing the country's revenues. Matata Ponyo, the country's Prime minister, who for a long time refused to engage with the IMF, met with IMF head, Christine Lagarde, in Washington DC recently to discuss measures to help the country cope with the falling currency.

  • The Night Owls

    Illicit traders are nicknamed “owls” because they work at night, when the miners crawl out of their shafts. If owls are caught by the police, they lose all their goods and their capital. In a dark room, one such trader spoke softly, anxious to remain anonymous for obvious reasons. He told IRIN how the police had confiscated his minerals and then sold them on to MMR, without paying him a cent. Another said: MMR buys “tonnes and tonnes… how can they come to confiscate the 20 or 30 kilos that I need to survive, and leave me empty-handed? Don’t you see this is not normal?” Prior to MMR’s stranglehold, traders could buy and sell minerals freely. Many of them were wandering across eastern Congo, trading minerals worth a few hundred dollars, much like any other merchandise. They would sell the...

  • The Origins of the African Slave Trade - Africans sold Africans as slaves

    http://www.scaruffi.com/politics/slavetra.html 1117: Slavery abolished in Iceland. 1214: The Statute of the Town of Korčula (today in Croatia) abolishes slavery. 1335: Sweden (including Finland at the time) makes slavery illegal. In 1807 Britain outlawed slavery. In 1820 the king of the African kingdom of Ashanti inquired why the Christians did not want to trade slaves with him anymore, since they worshipped the same god as the Muslims and the Muslims were continuing the trade like before. What these records show is that the modern slave trade flourished in the early middle ages, as early as 869, especially between Muslim traders and western African kingdoms. For moralists, the most important aspect of that trade should be that Muslims were selling goods to the African kingdoms and the Af...

French/Nat At the same time some of the states involved in the war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo signed up to a peace agreement last Saturday, rebels were advancing the diamond capital of Mbuji- Mayi. Some reports say the rebels may have taken the southern city of Kabinda, an important staging-post on the road to Mjubi-Mayi, only 100 kilometers away. APTN visited the town and discovered that diamond traders fear their business may collapse. Diamond traders are nervously watching rebel movements towards their city and fear that even a ceasefire won't stop the advance of the rebels. They say the market is jittery, with nervous trading pushing up prices. Mbuji-Mayi - the capital of the Kasai province - is heavily defended by Zimbabwean troops who back the government forces of Congolese President Laurent Kabila. The diamond trade is a crucial source of funds for the Kabila government. The vice governor of the province says its people are ready to defend the diamond-producing city. Six African governments are involved in the war -- Rwanda and Uganda have sent troops to help the rebels, and Angola, Namibia, Zimbabwe, have backed the government. A ceasefire was officially signed by African leaders last weekend in the Zambian capital Lusaka. The government and its backers have signed, but the rebels refused after a row over who was to head the mainstream Congolese Rally for Democracy the (R-C-D), which has split into two factions. The rebels say their war will continue, and the capture of Mbuji-Mayi and its diamond wealth threatens to deal a major blow to both the Kabila government and the peace process. Diamond traders talk of tough times ahead. SOUNDBITE: (French) "Prices (of diamonds) are rising everywhere. Traders are getting nervous and living conditions are not good at all." SUPER CAPTION: Eduard Kazadi, diamond trader But local newspaper headlines are optimistic: 'Ceasefire is on the horizon' and 'Victory for Yerodia," the Congolese Foreign Minister. But diamond traders know that if the rebels manage to take the city, their business is finished. SOUNDBITE: (French) "We the people of 'Kasai' do not want the rebels to take Mbuji-Mayi. Once they take the city we will not be able to trade diamonds anymore, and we expect there would be a famine." SUPER CAPTION: Zephyrin Kamanga, diamond trader At a grass roots meeting, the Vice Governor of Kasai province said it is Congo's neighbours who are to blame for the war. SOUNDBITE: (French) "Our country is the victim of an invasion by Burundi and Rwanda." SUPER CAPTION: Francois Kalala, Vice-Governor of the Province of Kasai Local citizens say they'll defend Congo's sovereignty, using the familiar language of the breakup of the Balkans into smaller states. SOUNDBITE: (French) "The national and international community must learn that we the people will always defend the sovereignty of our country. We will never accept the Balkanisation of the Democratic Republic of Congo." SUPER CAPTION: Rachelle Binene, attendee of meeting Most residents say they simply want peace. SOUNDBITE: (French) "We do not want war because war brings destruction. We want everybody to understand one another." SUPER CAPTION: Raymond Kapinga, resident of Mbuji-Mayi This is not how the authorities of Kasai see it. The Vice Governor puts on a more confrontational front, insisting that the people are united in wanting to defend the province if the need arises. SOUNDBITE: (French) "The enemy wants our wealth (diamonds) and even with the signing of the ceasefire they are still trying to capture the city, but the people are united and understand that they need to defend the province and support Kabila."

The Belgian government has denounced this documentary as a "tendentious diatribe" for depicting King Leopold II as the moral forebear of Adolf Hitler, responsible for the death of 10 million people in his rapacious exploitation of the Congo but the truth is that between 1880 and 1920 the population of the Congo fell from approximately 20 million to 10 million.

Congolese traders are worried after the Franc begun to weaken significantly against the dollar since February this year. Traders say that majority of the products sold in the country are imported forcing them to increase prices, a tough feat for a population that is largely poor. The IMF says that economic growth in the country, which is a top producer of copper and cobalt globally, reached an average of 7.7% per year between 2010 and 2015. It has however strongly slowed down in 2015, hit by falling commodity prices, greatly reducing the country's revenues. Matata Ponyo, the country's Prime minister, who for a long time refused to engage with the IMF, met with IMF head, Christine Lagarde, in Washington DC recently to discuss measures to help the country cope with the falling currency. But, analysts are concerned that the government no longer has the means to contain a further decline of the franc after injecting 50 million dollars in the banking sector early this month.

September 2009 Making mobile phones uses minerals only available from Congo's war zone. Is our appetite for the latest electronic gadgets fuelling exploitation in the Congoeven threatening the survival of central Africas magnificent gorillas? On the inside of many devices like mobile phones and laptops, the mineral, Coltan, has made our gadgets smaller and more complex. In the mineral-rich Congo, armed militia watch over the children digging it from the ground. The government only pretends to help us says one miner, who pays a government official just to work. The Congo is a shifting sands of various militia, the largest of which is the Congolese state itself explains an expert on blood minerals. Yet the miners depend on the little they get from mining to survive. Electronic giants like Apple now claim they will no longer use Coltan from this area but experts are convinced the militias will smuggle it onto the market regardless. For local miners, the move away from African minerals is just another way of penalising Africans. Coltan fuels a conflict, which has seen national parks become war zones, gorillas killed for meat and hundreds of houses set on fire in turf wars over mineral territory. Yet it also feeds 400,000 petty traders. Why did it take a mobile phone to make us appreciate the injustice in the Congo? Produced by ABC Australia, distributed by Journeyman Pictures

Illicit traders are nicknamed “owls” because they work at night, when the miners crawl out of their shafts. If owls are caught by the police, they lose all their goods and their capital. In a dark room, one such trader spoke softly, anxious to remain anonymous for obvious reasons. He told IRIN how the police had confiscated his minerals and then sold them on to MMR, without paying him a cent. Another said: MMR buys “tonnes and tonnes… how can they come to confiscate the 20 or 30 kilos that I need to survive, and leave me empty-handed? Don’t you see this is not normal?” Prior to MMR’s stranglehold, traders could buy and sell minerals freely. Many of them were wandering across eastern Congo, trading minerals worth a few hundred dollars, much like any other merchandise. They would sell them to larger buying houses that would then export them abroad. According to the UN investigation, this all changed in Kisengo after MMR obtained its exclusive buying rights. Congolese soldiers now “actively track down any infringing traders, jail them — sometimes for several days — and deliver the seized minerals” to MMR, its report says. Those who refuse to sell their minerals to MMR are detained until they agree.

http://www.scaruffi.com/politics/slavetra.html 1117: Slavery abolished in Iceland. 1214: The Statute of the Town of Korčula (today in Croatia) abolishes slavery. 1335: Sweden (including Finland at the time) makes slavery illegal. In 1807 Britain outlawed slavery. In 1820 the king of the African kingdom of Ashanti inquired why the Christians did not want to trade slaves with him anymore, since they worshipped the same god as the Muslims and the Muslims were continuing the trade like before. What these records show is that the modern slave trade flourished in the early middle ages, as early as 869, especially between Muslim traders and western African kingdoms. For moralists, the most important aspect of that trade should be that Muslims were selling goods to the African kingdoms and the African kingdoms were paying with their own people. In most instances, no violence was necessary to obtain those slaves. Contrary to legends and novels and Hollywood movies, the white traders did not need to savagely kill entire tribes in order to exact their tribute in slaves. All they needed to do is bring goods that appealed to the kings of those tribes. The kings would gladly sell their own subjects. (Of course, this neither condones the white traders who bought the slaves nor deny that many white traders still committed atrocities to maximize their business). This explains why slavery became "black". Ancient slavery, e.g. under the Roman empire, would not discriminate: slaves were both white and black (so were Emperors and Popes). In the middle ages, all European countries outlawed slavery (of course, Western powers retained countless "civilized" ways to enslave their citizens, but that's another story), whereas the African kingdoms happily continued in their trade. Therefore, only colored people could be slaves, and that is how the stereotype for African-American slavery was born. It was not based on an ancestral hatred of blacks by whites, but simply on the fact that blacks were the only ones selling slaves, and they were selling people of their own race. (To be precise, Christians were also selling Muslim slaves captured in war, and Muslims were selling Christian slaves captured in war, but neither the Christians of Europe nor the Muslims of Africa and the Middle East were selling their own people). Then the Muslim trade of African slaves declined rapidly when Arab domination was reduced by the emerging European powers. (Note: Arabs continued to capture and sell slaves, but mostly in the Mediterranean. In fact, Robert Davis estimates that 1.25 million European Christians were enslaved by the "Barbary States" of northern Africa. As late as 1801 the USA bombed Morocco, Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli precisely to stop that Arab slave trade of Christians. The rate of mortality of those Christian slaves in the Islamic world was roughly the same as the mortality rate in the Atlantic slave trade of the same period.) Christians took over in black Africa, though. The first ones were the Portuguese, who, applying an idea that originally developed in Italian seatrading cities, and often using Italian venture capital, started exploiting sub-Saharan slaves in the 1440s to support the economy of the sugar plantations (mainly for their own African colonies of Sao Tome and Madeira). The Dutch were the first, apparently, to import black slaves into North America, but black slaves had already been employed all over the world, including South and Central America. We tend to focus on what happened in North America because the United States would eventually fight a war over slavery (and it's in the U.S. that large sectors of the population would start condemning slavery, contrary to the indifference that Muslims and most Europeans showed for it). Even after Europeans began transporting black slaves to America, most trade was just that: "trade". In most instances, the Europeans did not need to use any force to get those slaves. The slaves were "sold" more or less legally by their (black) owners. Scholars estimate that about 12,000,000 Africans were sold by Africans to Europeans (most of them before 1776, when the USA wasn't yet born) and 17,000,000 were sold to Arabs. The legends of European mercenaries capturing free people in the jungle are mostly just that: legends. A few mercenaries certainly stormed peaceful tribes and committed terrible crimes, but that was not the norm. There was no need to risk their lives, so most of them didn't: they simply purchased people. As an African-American scholar (Nathan Huggins) has written, the "identity" of black Africans is largely a white invention: sub-Saharan Africans never felt like they were one people, they felt (and still feel) that they belonged to different tribes. The distinctions of tribe were far stronger than the distinctions of race.
