Description:   The Democratic Republic of Congo is the third largest country in all of Africa. It is in central Africa. It is an ex Belgian colony. It is a very large country which apart from a small bit of land in and around the capital, Kinshasa on the Atlantic coast is entirely land locked. Due to its vast size it has a great deal of natural resources. It appears to be relatively stable at the moment
