Afterthoughts

Mobutu Sese Seko has taken, shall we say, an early retirement in Zaire. A victim of term limits, Mobutu still has his CIA pension.

- Mobutu was overthrown by the rebel leader, Kabila, who elected himself president and announced there would be no further elections. He then changed Zaire's name to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.- After Mobutu was snuck out of town, his son stayed behind to tidy up and shoot the disloyal Cabinet members. It's what we could call asking for their resignations.

- Although this information is of little interest to the average person here, it is intended for the 11 Americans who can find Zaire on a map.
