In the Congo according to the article, the major problem in the Congo is the military conflict. The war in Congo has killed approximately 5.4 million lives of April 2007. The war is a huge threat to all the people in the nation. 45,000 people die a month on average due to the conflict going on. The government is clearly inapt to stopping this tragedy from happening.

According to NationMaster there is major child trafficking throughout the nation. Girls being sold into sex slavery and kids being sold for labor purposes. This just goes to show how weak and nonexistent the government is, that they cant stop war or human trafficking. The poverty in the Congo is so bad that the sale of humans is a predominant trade in the nation.
