Bet your knowledge and answer
President Mobutu Seko Nkuku Ngbende Wa Za Banga ruled the African country, Zaire (Democratic Rep. of Congo) from 1965 to 1997. The regime was authoritarian, anti-colonialist and anti-communist, and Mobutu portrayed himself as Jesus and his mother as the Virgin Mary. He believed that his party was neither right-wing, left-wing nor in the middle. From abroad they named his government kleptocracy as he swiped one mill. dollars for himself, even though the population was very poor. His son, Nzanga Mobutu, was also the Minister of Agriculture of the Congolese government.
