In this episode, we discuss China’s relationship with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) with Congolese researcher and human rights activist Kambale Musavuli.

Kambale takes us through everything from the responsibility of local elites in delivering projects, to the US efforts to cut China off from vital strategic minerals (involving both Hilary Clinton and Antony Blinken), and dispelling myths about the ‘controversial’ Chinese-owned Tenke Fungurume cobalt mine.
