    Runtime: 42:26

    Many millionaires live in the Democratic Republic of Congo, one of the world's poorest countries. This film depicts some of those who have made fortunes amid the chaos, including musicians, mining bosses, entrepreneurs and preachers.
    The DRC is rich in raw materials, but only a few profit from its natural resources. While 60% of Congo's inhabitants live on less than $1.25 per day, businessmen, artists, former rebel leaders and evangelists are reaping the rewards of economic growth. In the capital, Kinshasa, these new rich live in safe and luxurious enclaves, while children toil in coltan mines in the eastern part of the country.
    Fally Ipupa has made his money with music. Others rely on their business acumen, like Patricia Nzolantima, who founded a taxi company and aims to give more opportunities to women.
    With 3,000 mine workers, Cooperamma is the largest employer in North Kivu, in the east of the DRC. Managing director Robert Seninga says his coltan mines are extremely well-run, yet safety standards are poor. Coltan, a globally coveted mineral, is used in cell phones and other devices. It’s both a blessing and a curse for the Congo. It makes some rich, but for others it means death. The region still suffers from ethnic and factional conflicts, with money from illegal coltan smuggling financing new violence. It’s a vicious cycle.

All those rich people living together in unpaved roads with trash everywhere and surrounded by poverty they rather hired body guards than to create opportunities to employ the locals to clean up the cities. It makes no sense. ThTs like building a mansion in a gutter. I rather clean the gutter first then build. I don’t get these people mentality. I would create multiple companies and jobs . Also many of the building like the coal tan miner the building is falling apart but he doesn’t upgrade or upkeep the building but instead walks around with body guards driving fancy car . The main problem I see with Africa is no one is taught the value of reinvesting it’s take take take take. No one reinvests back into the business or upgrades. That’s the one thing you can learn from living in America. They take care of the Infrastructure

And to think all this time i was led to believe that what you see in the DRC as in most of Africa, are the repercussions of colonialism and yes, horrible governance by individuals handpicked by said colonisers to carry out their bidding whilst also imposing their governance of said nations from the comfort of their homes in europe by way of aides and sanctions yet claiming to leave these nations independent!!, im gutted to find out that its been all our fault all along!! Thank you for the enlightenment!! :-) :-) :-)

The so-called "prophet" and the political businessman who runs the mining business are concrete examples of the rotten truth of this corrupt continent where a specific group of affluent people co-operate politically and economically in order to further enrich themselves under the expense of immorally impoverishing the already suffocated African poor even more! However, I can never put the blame on these monstrous people alone, the blame is directed to Africans themselves who never change their system of beliefs and decide to truly sacrifice everything for change, as long as the people are passive, the rates of corruption will only increase and so will that of poverty.

The problem in Africa is that is extremely difficult to run a small business. And the chances of it growing into a big business are minimal, thanks to mafia-like gangs, corruption at every level of government and in the police force, endemic crime, laziness among the uneducated workforce, and an almost non-existent infrastructure.

The so-called prophet is simply a wolf dressed in sheep clothing, fleecing his people to build his own personal wealth. It's a shame that millions of black people believe in his worthless preaching and worthless concoction. They believe in him just like millions of wayward people in America believe in Donald Trump. So sad. But he will ultimately pay for his sins in the pit of hell for all eternity. Therefore, he's only getting away with this foolishness for now. But one day he will die. That is certain. And no gasoline base concoction will resurrect him from the dead. He will experience fiery torment throughout eternity.
