Administration 2. Writing Suggestions 3. Zaire/Congo about Mobutu and beyond Joseph Mobutu seizes power in a coup in 1965. He was forced into exile in 1997 and died of cancer shortly after. Since 1997, Congo had two different civil wars. One of the most violent and dangerous places on earth. The war ended in July 2003. Mobutu's rule lasted for 32 years and was extremely violent. He was a brutal dictator and ruled consistent with a pattern that characterizes with many countries in the developing world. The Congo was a very weak state under Mobutu. Aspects of a weak state: There is a very blurry line between the regime and the state. No difference between government institutions and people that occupy those institutions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
