The history of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is a tragic story of a nation that, because of mainly bad leadership, has not reached halfway its potential.
Instead, the country has suffered an unbroken succession of abusive political administrations from top-down, corrupt police force, undisciplined military and all sorts of negative forces that have looted this vast country and committed human rights abuses with impunity.
It seems there is no way out for DR Congo’s miseries. DR Congo remains a “failed state” to this day and for that, a Federalism system is the only way out – otherwise it is too big to succeed with its current form of governance.
