Introduction

After a visit to China, former President Mobuto Sese Seko commissioned China with the construction of the Palace of the People. The colossal mansion, built from marble and richly decorated with gold leaf, houses the nearly 100 different parties that almost hold 500 seats altogether. Despite this fragmented opposition, the parliament attempts to review the country’s growing number of resource-exploitation contracts, many of which have been made with China.
