The Democratic Republic of Congo has always accused its neighbors of exploiting and plundering its resources like gold, diamonds, copper, timber among others. However, Red Pepper has learnt that the trade also involves native tycoons who export gold to the outside world, especially Europe, Asia and the US. Moles have told us that one of such tycoons goes by the name Alfa Amango, a retired officer and his young brother Madimbo Bomengo. They have reportedly been in this trade for a while and by the time we went to the press, are believed to be in possession of about 860kgs tons of gold stationed in one of the countries in the great lakes region and ready to be shipped to the United Arab Emirates. Watch this space as we continue to unmask Congo tycoons behind this lucrative trade.
