Thierry Michel portrays the bitter struggle over precious natural resources such as cobalt, ore, wolfram and copper in the Congo. Governor Moïse Katumbi, “a capitalist-populist mixture of Silvio Berlusconi and Hugo Chávez”, is at loggerheads with Chinese and Western investors. It is the poorest of the poor who suffer most from this economic colonialism. The workers fall victim to the police, political cronies, corruption and global greed of gain.
