Zaire

The USA sends $1,400,000 to assist troops fighting a civil war in Zaire. The USA backed ruler, Mobutu Sese Seko, keeps the entire sum.

Zaire has more resources than most other countries in the region; the corrupt regime keeps this country so poor that one third of Zaire's children die before the age of five. Imprisonment and torture, often without trial, are commonly used against Mobutu's opponents.
