Zaire and in the Central African region most
players are seeking to exploit the conditions of war and win (geopolitics).
Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, and the United States Government are clearly
backing Kabila’s rebel forces and all are winning in terms of economic
opportunities, border security on the Za?rian side, and alliances sympathetic to
their geostrategic interests. South Africa would also appear to gain in the long
term from a rebel victory but has suffered some losses in the short term.
Mobutu’s Zaire, Hutu militias from Burundi and Rwanda, certain Za?rian ethnic
groups, Sudan, Tanzania, Kenya, and France, appear to be losing the game.
