[Interview] Kambale Musavuli

Ces vidéos très intéressantes sont en anglais.

Interesting comments and analysis by Kambale Musavuli of Congolese history and major events in Congo that are all linked to USA from a way or another.

The documentary is similar to Kongo. Obviously the same team produced both versions but this one with shorter editing (2 hours instead of  2 hours and 30 minutes) and some archive images are different. Also this one comes with English subtitles (click on CC).
