• CONGO: MBUJI-MAYI: DIAMOND TRADERS NERVOUS ABOUT REBEL ADVANCE

    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 govern...

    For minerals to remain truly conflict-free, their flow has to be kept separate from tainted materials. It’s a challenge. The mines validated as conflict-free can be just a few hills away from those controlled by armed groups. And the trade is messy, with miners and mineral traders operating independently and constantly on the move across the region. Conflict minerals can easily leak into the supposedly clean supply chains. See more here: https://www.irinnews.org/feature/2017/02/09/who-pays-hidden-price-congo%E2%80%99s-conflict-free-minerals

  • 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...

    In which John Green teaches you about one of the least funny subjects in history: slavery. John investigates when and where slavery originated, how it changed over the centuries, and how Europeans and colonists in the Americas arrived at the idea that people could own other people based on skin color. Slavery has existed as long as humans have had civilization, but the Atlantic Slave Trade was the height, or depth, of dehumanizing, brutal, chattel slavery. American slavery ended less than 150 years ago. In some parts of the world, it is still going on. So how do we reconcile that with modern life? In a desperate attempt at comic relief, Boba Fett makes an appearance. Crash Course World History is now available on DVD! http://store.dftba.com/products/crashcourse-world-history-the-complet...

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."

In small groups, bare chested, knee deep in murky water, they sieve gravel for hours until they spot the glitter of one tiny diamond. In town, we interview an illegal trader who compares diamond dealing to the blood diamond trade in a warzone. He takes out a small paper package from his trouser leg and slowly unwraps a cluster of uncut jewels. He carries them to bribe his way out of any difficult situations. The De Beers diamond cartel is keen to stop the illegal diamond trade. A spokesman maintains that most of Angola'’s diamonds are smuggled out the country and are therefore denied to the people of Angola. “We would like to develop a first class diamond field and build a proper mining operation. In this way the country can be further developed.” Local mining companies depend on private security firms to guarantee their safety. While filming, bandits with grenade launchers and machine guns take our reporter by surprise. After much bargaining, she is finally allowed to leave the area.

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.
