Radio Congo (Paperback)

Ben Rawlence


In this compelling, critically acclaimed debut, Ben Rawlence sets out to share the news from the uneasy peace being made in Congo?s "silent quarter". Travelling by foot, bike, and boat, he meets the people who are rebuilding life in one of the world?s most dangerous places. He introduces us to Colonel Ibrahim, a guerrilla turned army officer; Benjamin, the kindly father of the most terrifying Mai Mai warlord; the cousins Mohammed & Mohammed, young tin traders making their fortune; and talk show host Mama Christine, who dispenses counsel and courage to the women of her village. Along the way, Rawlence exposes the real story of Congo, during and after the war.
