The Zaire/Congo River, the second biggest and sixth longest river on earth; its course a vast 4,640kms of sluggish, meandering, island-studded mystery, broken in places by fearful rapids and falls,... More > fringed by dense rain-forest, and inhabited by primitive tribes and wild animals. Few places can evoke the same images of dark brooding menace and danger, and few places can have justified such impressions, from the horrors of the Congo Free State, through the Stanleyville massacres, to the chaos and blood-letting of the post-Mobutu years. In 1984, Mobutu was at the height of his power and ruled Zaire with an iron fist.

His matter-of-fact narrative as he describes the perils and tribulations of the journey - which culminated in a spell in a Kinshasa prison - offers a fascinating insight into the life of the ordinary people under the regime of President Mobutu.< Less

More > régimes : d’abord, il a faussé compagnie au président Mobutu lorsqu’il s’est rendu compte que ce dernier s’est écarté de la ligne tracée par la Constitution ; ensuite, il a demandé à haute voix à Laurent-Désiré Kabila d’exiger la facture à ses alliés rwandais, ougandais et burundais et de les renvoyer chez eux ; et enfin, il a affronté Joseph Kabila à la Présidentielle de novembre 2011 qu’il a affirmé l’avoir emporté. La plus grande victoire d’Etienne TSHISEKEDI reste incontestablement la restauration du multipartisme, le 24 avril 1990.
